I'm taking the opportunity today to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy & Healthy New Year!

December 25th will be my 1 year anniversary of blogging (thank you Sol for tutoring me at the Hayashi family Christmas gathering!)  Frankly, I'm stunned that I found so much to yack about over the last 365 days.  What I have learned is that blogging has given me a new outlook about my daily life.  Little things that I might have spent only a nano second on in the past, have now caught my attention and provided more enjoyment as I've taken the time to stop, look, and listen.  Ya.....it's like smelling the roses.  I hope the good scent has been enjoyable at your end as well.

It's likely my blogging over the next several days will be minimal as we head out to San Francisco tomorrow to spend the holiday with 'the perfect child', his wife and her wonderful family.  Our house sitters have arrived and are vowing that they will be glued to our big screen TV the entire time.....so all will be quiet on the home front.

If Internet access is available, I'll be checking in....until then thank you for giving me a reason to document the ups and downs of daily life!

Merry Christmas........Mary

Merry Christmas to you too, Mary! I've loved following your blog this year since meeting you last January in Fort Worth.
