One year in the life of Fringe...


New Year's Day, 11 years ago.

Hello, lovely friends!  I know it's a cliche, but where did the time go?  Another year gone.  This year has been dramatic for us as a family.  There has been heartache and joy, fear and excitement, challenges and accomplishments.  There is one thing that has left a lasting impression on me and the way I now live my life.  I've truly and deeply learned that life is precious, and I look at each day with my loved ones as a gift. 

For this last post of 2010, I thought it might be fun to look back on the last 12 months through my blog posts.  I chose one post to represent the entire month.  Except for October.  It's harder than it sounds to narrow them down...For the most part, I didn't focus on my Fringe-related posts.  The following posts are more on the personal side.

January ~ What I've learned in 3 years.

February ~ Here's to happy.

March ~ Blog It Forward - Inspiration.

April ~ A whole lotta shakin'...

May ~ The Rose - My Tribute to May Flowers.

June ~ Pin It Forward - What Home Means to Me.

July ~ We're off...

August ~ Happy Birthday, Dad.

September ~ The Nostalgia Series.

October ~ Two years ago today...  and   That man of mine.
November ~ A preview and some philosophy.

December ~ An announcement

                    Our boy took his karate black belt exam on December 13th,
and he passed!
He now has a black belt in karate.
We are so proud of him. 
What an accomplishment!

I hope you ring in the New Year exactly as you want to.  As for me, I will be here at home with my two boys, sipping champagne.  I wouldn't have it any other way.

I'll be back in 2011 with my thoughts, hopes and wishes for the New Year.  Until then...

Thank you for visiting. 
Much love from me to you...xo
