Happy New Year
Today starts my fourth year of blogging.
It has been a wonderful journey with a large
 variety of posts and several thousand pictures
of and about just about everything..
Some happy...

Some sad...

Pennsylvania Veterans Memorial

Silly ones...

Cute ones..(Lots of those)

Farm visits...Lots of those too..

Awwwww ones....

Flowers, birds, squirrels, frogs, trees and weather..
Almost anything goes.
It hasn't always been easy 
to come up with something interesting and different 
to write about or take pictures of.

What has really been very special to me
 are the friends I have made through blogging.
 You have all become like family to me.
 We have spent a lot of  time  sharing our lives and families,
 laughing and even crying together.

Our bond is a special one and I am grateful to all of you
for your input,concerns and support.
Thanks for hanging in there with me. 

In honor of you and my anniversary,
 I am giving away an assortment 
of twelve of my handmade greeting cards with envelopes.

For a chance to win, just write a comment on this post.
Mollie or Max will pick a winner on Saturday.
I will post the winner on Monday.
Good luck !!

I hope that 2014 is the best year ever
 for each and every one of you.
