Happy New Year


As I bid farewell to 2011, I am filled with gratitude - gratitude for my son and daughter, 
for my husband, for our families and for many great friends.

When I reflect on our friendships, I am incredibly grateful for the blogging community that I have been introduced to over the last several years. The sentiments from readers near and far have been wonderfully and completely embracing, and your presence in our life is felt and cherished very much. Because of your warmth, kindness, and kindred spirits, I feel as if we could meet anywhere, anytime, and I would know you as a familiar friend.

So thank you dear friends for a beautiful year!

May you be blessed with health and happiness, and with the love of your family and friends in the coming New Year.

  21. And thank-you for opening up your beautiful home for us to see! I always enjoy your blog so much. When you posted about the babies' first b-day I thought "Oh my gosh, I feel like they were just born!" and I am just a reader so I am sure time flies even faster for mom and dad! Happy New Year to you and yours.

  36. I am glad I found your blog, Trina, but I feel kind of like a late arrival to the party. Do you have twins? Our twin daughters arrived on December 23, 1974 when our oldest daughter was 20 months old! Children really bring a new dimension to all the Christmas fun.
    Happy New Year!

  40. I've just spent the last few days reading EVERY one of your posts after seeing your lovely house in Country Living (I had only glanced through it when it came originally). What a sweet spirit you have that shines through your blog - I'm so happy your dreams have come true.

    I'm also so inspired by your clean ascetic in decorating your house. I've now been looking very critically at all the STUFF I've accumulated. :-) I will happily be following your blog from now on! Thank you.
