I never suspected, when I first began this blogging venture in July 2010, just how much it would come to mean to me. (And how much I would enjoy it.) I never thought anyone would be interested in hearing what I had to say about anything. I though I'd wind up just keeping a kind of journal which only me and maybe my family would read. But still I tried to make it as good looking and informative as I could (within my own limited tech-experience which isn't saying much). So all of your comments and positive feedback have come as a bit of a surprise and I thank you from the bottom of my heart.
I think this Norman Rockwell painting expresses the joy of a Christmas homecoming perfectly - don't you? Notice the man with the pipe, that is Norman Rockwell himself.
Yvette, the happiest of holidays to you and yours! Thank you so much for the time you put into this gorgeous, warm, and inviting website. I LOVE dropping in here to peruse and find out what's new with you. Looking forward to more "visiting" in 2011.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much, mjoy! It's great to hear from you. I can't tell you how much your kind words about my blog mean to me. :) I'll look forward to your 'visiting' as well. I have a feeling it's going to be a great year!ReplyDelete
What great work he did. I love this picture, as I do all of them. I'm so glad you began your blog, Yvette. I learn something every time I visit, and the sheer beauty of your colors and pictures is always pleasing to my eye. Happy Christmas time to you and your family!ReplyDelete

Nan: Thanks so much! It's so great to 'hear' that my blog is appreciated, especially by experts like you. I'm the 'new kid on the block' but I'm finding out what a warm and welcoming community this is. Hope you had a great Christmas too, ours was wonderful!ReplyDelete
Ryan: We did, thank you, Ryan. We had possibly the best Christmas ever. My granddaughter's first. Wait until I post pictures! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas too!ReplyDelete
I enjoy visiting your blog very much Yvette! Your observations, book reviews and writings are always informative and I especially enjoy all the beautiful illustrations you include in each post. I may not comment on every post but I always try to catch with all I missed when I visit you. Have a very happy, healthy 2011!ReplyDelete
Thank you, Pat. It's so great to hear that you like my efforts. It is amazing to me just how much I am enjoying blogging and inter-acting with the whole community. It's really a revelation. I love visiting your blog as well, checking out NYC vicariously. Have a happy New Year - and a healthy one too!ReplyDelete
