Happy New Year & 1st Book of 2015




2014 what an AMAZING year, I am truly blessed! 









Thank you from the heart to everyone for a wonderful year of friendship, blogging, great reads, challenges, laughs, tears, joys and sorrows shared. I'm grateful for the technology we have these days (facebook, instagram, blog) that allows us to share our lives with friends and family across the miles with such ease. 

In 2015 hug loved ones close, hold health & happiness with both hands, live your dreams, rediscover your strengths, treasure the little things and love and laugh with all your heart xx




My pick for the First Book of 2015 hosted by Sheila @ Book Journey is FIRST FROST by Sarah Addison Allen ...  and I'm excited to start. 



I hope everyone loves their 1st book of the year choice ... happy reading :)

  8. Happy New Year! Love the family pictures. I'm kind of jealous that it is summer where you are. I'd love to have a warm and sunny Christmas :)

    I hope you enjoy First Frost. I really liked it. My first book of the year is a Rhys Bowen mystery.
