Happy New Year

 Hi friends! Happy New Year! 

I doubt I will ever be comfortable with the hard Minnesota winters (its -3F outside. offta!) but I am grateful for many things here. Good friends. Coffee shops. The community of vintage shops, homes and inspiration. Our home and family. 

I have been reading Anne of Green Gables the past few days. In the words of Anne: "I've made up my mind to enjoy this drive. It's been my experience that you can nearly always enjoy things if you make up your mind firmly that you will."

And from my devotional Streams in the Desert, "We always enjoy looking down a long road lined with trees..why not look back on the road of the years of your life? Look at the large green limbs of God's mercy overhead and the strong pillars of His loving-kindness and faithfulness that have brought you much joy."

I don't make formal New Year's Resolutions (I never make it when I try!) but I wish you a wonderful 2014. And a time of sweet 2013 reflection.
