Happiest Of NEW YEAR TO Y O U!!!

Hello lovely friends stopping in this morning, it’s officially almost 2011 and this is my
last post of the year. As I recall all of my year captured here via The Blog World, I think
of one great word to sum it all up and put my emotions into perspective “Gratitude”.
I have been humbled, inspiredgrateful and thankful to SO many momentsfriends and encouragements that have crossed my way throughout the year.
**
 I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.
It’s been great to get to know so many beautiful blogger’s out there. I am thankful to all
my bloggy bff’s both the new and the old ones that have stuck by me and
been here to always encourage and inspire me all year round. I have learned SO
much and from stranger’s online that I’ve grown to simply consider FRIENDS.
I want to take a special time out today to thank EVERYONE here that have taken a moment to comment on something I shared, sent me encouraging email’s, linked up to 
my party’s and joined in all 
the fun blog events I’ve hosted.
 YOU GUYS R O C K 
and I owe SO much of my
growth and inspiration 
this year TO YOU!!
....................................................
Friendship Isn't About The Big Things, But About The Million Little 
Things From The Heart...
I STAND ON A SOAP BOX AND SCREAM TODAY
“I ℓ♥√ع My Artsy Friends"AND U And U..
I Wish You ALL Success, Love, Great Health,
Inspiration, Lots Of Laughter & Growth In 2012..
*Happiest Of New Year To Y O U*
Thanks SO Much For Stopping In Today

Reflections... {Re-living Moments With The Lovely Vintage Gwen}

Good morning lovely friends stopping in today, I am very excited to continue my 
REFLECTIONS Series today with the lovely Jennifer from Vintage Gwen. I really
adore Jenn and have grown to enjoy SO much she features on her blog, I admire her faith 
and her patience, she's truly an awesome person to get to know and one of my FAVORITE 
blog moments this year actually was sharing A Special Christmas Soiree Series with her.. 
Please join me in reflecting upon the year in Jenn's world this year and cheers to 
all the amazing things to come for Vintage Gwen... 
................................................
Hello! I'm Jennifer of Vintage Gwen. It's always an honor to be a guest of The Artsy Girl! 
Marilyn always has fantastic series ideas and her Reflections is just that!


Highlight(s) of 2011
I started my blog in February and it's been great making blog friends! Of course seeing
my now 2 year old son grow over the year has been amazing. It's true...they do grow up fast!
This fall I got to go on our Ladies Retreat...I had missed the last few years due to having
my son.  It was the best retreat ever! By serving I was restored and renewed. And probably
the #1 highlight has been some major changes at my church.  In November, we merged
with another church in town and changed our name.  It's been amazing
to actually see God move in our community!

Reflections... {Reliving Moments With DAYS OF CHALK AND CHOCOLATE}

Good evening friends stopping in tonight, It's day two of my series
REFLECTIONS with the lovely Jenny from 
*Day's Of Chalk & Chocolate*..
If you missed yesterday's, we recapped the BEST moments shared via The Letter Four Blog!
The sister's stopped in and shared some fun facts about 2011 with us! Please join me in 
welcoming one of my favorite blogger's Jenny, stopping in and recapping her year 
with us here today!! Without further due, lets cheers to her 
accomplishments and ring in the New Year..
.............................
I am so honored to be asked my Marilyn at The Artsy Girl Connection to be part of her 
End of the Year Reflections series!  It was such fun to write and I can't believe how 
things have changed for us this year. We are so blessed in so many ways!  One of my 
biggest blessings has been starting this blog and meeting so many inspiring 
women who are bringin' it every single day!
>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Marilyn asked me to provide a family picture and I realized the only one I could find 
is the one on my sidebar and it's not exactly the best.  Guess we have to take more family 
pictures!  So I found a few recent ones of us with the kids and then of our wedding since 
I can't seem to find any recent ones of Jim and I together! 
I guess one of us is always holding the camera.
Ellie and me
Jim and Molly
Jim and me on our wedding day
Everything is a joke!
