Cheers ~ Welcome 2011!


I thought long and hard about what to write for my last blog post of 2010.

It's been a difficult year for our family...for reasons too plentiful to list.  Let's just say (without even knowing what the future has in store) I look forward to starting anew and the possibility of brighter days ahead.

That's not to say it's all been bad...

As I sit here typing I am watching my children play together while my husband reads the paper. I love them. We are safe, warm and under one roof.  For that I am blessed.

I picked up running this summer and have increased what began as a fifteen minute strenuous jog... to today easily running over three and a half miles.  For that I am proud.

I started this blog in March with no idea how much it would evolve into a fulfilling, constructive hobby. I've enjoyed getting to know my fellow bloggers, seeing your food and hearing your stories. You have made me laugh, inspired me to try new things ~ but most of all ~ you have made me hungry.  For that I am grateful.

So here's to 2011 ~ may it be filled with peace, prosperity, great health and ~ but of course ~ excellent food! 

Cheers!

Happy belated birthday! There is so much in common in our 2010. It was tough under some aspects but I am so grateful for my family and our home. I started running and lost weight and feel more energized than ever. I started my blog and created a whole new world for myself. Wishing you all the best for 2011.
