Happy New Year

"We will open the book.

Its pages are blank.

We are going to put words on them ourselves.

The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day."

~ Edith Lovejoy Pierce ~

You have eloquently put exactly how I am feeling about this coming year, thank you!

Although, I think I may have to throw in 'lose a few pounds'.... at least for this curvy girl anyway ;)

Dear Julie,

Thank you for taking the time to post the Island Park pictures. It was fun to relive our little reunion through pictures. Enjoyed your other family pictures and comments as well. Hope this will be a wonderful year for everyone! I love Ryan's new look. Very handsome.
