Welcome New Year!

My husband turned 48 yesterday.
I am not far behind.
It sounds old.
Good thing we don't act our age!

We had a 'brown' Christmas....and now we are getting snow....and severe winds....sure hope our typical 5 months of snow isn't going to begin now!

This is the holly bush I planted this past year.
All year I anticipated using it to decorate for Christmas.
Because of the lack of fall moisture, every other leaf was crunchy and only two dried up red berries remained.
I cut some anyway.

As the wind whips off our lake and the storm windows rattle, I am grateful for a warm home and family tucked together inside.
And I am grateful for a New Year.

I love being inside a warm house on a blustery day. Happy new year!
