h e l l o !
W O W
Life happens!

...this past year...

Everyone was coming and going!

We packed up my childhood home
and my father made the move to live closer to us.
He also turned 90 and we had a sweet celebration!

Amanda got married to a wonderful man.
Rachael & her husband moved to Texas.
Jason still lives in Texas and is getting married next year.
Even my sister and her family moved away!

...and now...

How have YOU been?
~ It's been a long time ~
I've missed posting and visiting you.
I hope you are all well... 
and your paths have been

calm and gentle.

Hi Maria! Welcome! You been missed. Thank you for visiting my spot. I was wonderfully surprised.
My health has improved and I returned to blogging in September.
I love the forest photo. It so reminds me of behind my neighbor's home. She borders a park and the leaves are doing the same thing! Glad we don't have to rake the park!
Blessings to you!
Love, Dixie

Maria, I've often thought of you! I looked a few months ago - thought I had your E-mail - but no luck. I'm so happy to get your news. How is teaching? I hope you and Chris are well and happy. My best to your family.

Hello Maria,
Life has been busy this way too. It sounds like you have had some wonderful things in life happening! :)
I am slowly trying to get back over to blogging as well. Been posting a little easier on Instagram it seems.

Beautiful images! Happy week to you!

So happy to see you here again. I was smiling while reading in this few lines some GREAT things from your life
When my children were little all was so intense . Being a family and living all in one house was synoptic.
I never thought about later , that they all would live on their own . But .....it happened and life unfolded natural .
Your country is so large , I cannot even Imagen .
You have your husband and that is a blessing .
Big hug from Holland .

when I started blogging
you ,Koralee and Anita become the first blogs I followed and I was overwhelmed
You were all living so so far apart over the ocean and yet It feld like we would have been friends when we lived nearby FOR SURE .
Hope you are well .
big hug .
