A Year in Review

Hello there! 2011 has been a very busy, fun, eventful, and did I say busy year for my family!

            You know LIFE just sometimes gets in the way... LOL!
And yes, I know and apologize for not posting in way too, too long! I've missed talkin' to y'all these past few months! Hopefully the new year will allow more "ME" time and I will be able to share more, read more, and visit more with the blogging community!

Family is so important to me...

with #1 SON starting a new business

with "Daddy's Girl" (aka "Tennessee Daughter") moving back to Alabama, school, farm life with her hubby

sharing time with my young loves

fun with the Lake Family

 music, music, music

And of course TRAVEL

Change came too this past year.
With a lot of sadness, my friend and me closed 2 antique booths (just too much sT rE Ss for this ole southern gal

But as we all know once mother's goin' junkin'...always junkin'!!  

I'm missing the hunt and the thrill of finding that one item that is the... dare I say...the bomb!!

April 27, 2011 will forever live in my heart and mind as one of the worst days as the tornadoes raced across my beloved state of Alabama.


But out of the misery came hope, neighbors helping neighbors, friends and even strangers racing to help, rebuilding a stronger community.

The road to recovery is long... But all of Alabama are traveling it together.  And we are thankful...

Yes, yes, yes, as I look back at the year in review I can really say 2011 has been good to me!

And I'm happily looking forward to what the new year has in store for my friend and me!

Have a Blessed Day!! And see ya down the junkin' road!!


Partying with:
Sunday's Best Linky Party!

So glad you're back! It seems like you enjoyed lots of blessings, even in the face of tornados. How nice to have your daughter and loved ones close! That's a great reason to blog less. :)
