Habby Dew Year, Evvabuddy.

We all woke up snuffling and dripping and drooping this morning. The first moments of 2010, I suppose, will find us all fully-medicated and snug in our beds, prolly just a'snorin' away, thanks to all the ick in our noses.

BUT! Even as we saw logs and cough and sputter, we'll be counting the beautiful, blessed moments of 2009 and holding close in spirit the friends and family, including y'all, who've made it special - made it come alive with love and wonder - and looking forward to a bright and happy New Year brimming with more of the same.

Y'all have a fun, safe, memorable celebration!

And of course you know I can't pass up a chance to share some dependably awesome JT with you.


So here's a hand, my trusted friend
And give me a hand of thine.
We'll take a cup of kindness yet,
For auld land syne.

For auld lang syne, my dear,
For auld lang syne,
The seas between us have roared and swelled,
Since auld lang syne...

Happy New Year to all of our cherished family and friends, old and new, near and far.

We're gratefully blessed to share this life with you.

  3. Nothing like a little James Taylor to make me feel nostalgic. He's one of my favorites.
