Hello Everyone. Here is it 2018 already and I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the new year. A lot has happened since my last post and I have to say with a sad and heavy heart that my dear mom passed away in November of 2017. My blog is dedicated to her and to her memory. She was the nucleus of our family and provided a strong support system for her children. She was truly an amazing woman in her own right and I will miss her so much. My mom lived a long and rich life and had the most uplifting and positive spirit that made you feel happy and content about life after visits with her. So I continue to dedicate my blog to my mom and I look forward to the year ahead.
