Warm Wishes....

I'm afraid this will have to be my last post until New Year's Eve.  I've kind of been putting off the massive task of  packing for our holiday travels and I'm starting to get a bit freaked out about the fact that the coat I ordered for Phoebe hasn't arrived yet (day 7) and we have been unable to find her any boots so she may end up sporting a sweat jacket and Converse tennis shoes in the snowy midwest.  I also have lots of goodies to fit into just a few suitcases and looking at it all it doesn't really make sense yet.  Usually I can look at a situation, size it up and tackle the task at hand but this time I'm just not feeling it (Perhaps it is the fact that it is 65 degrees and sunny and my little one just put on shorts?).  Anyways, my shop will be open for orders until noon tomorrow (PST) and I will be back on New Year's Eve with a special Give Away.  It's been a very big year (we've laughed, we've cried, we've moved, we've changed) and I want to show my thanks to all of you who have supported and encouraged me over the past 12 months.  Honestly, I couldn't have done it without you....thanks for reading.

take a deep breath and (you know what i'm going to say next...) pour a glass of wine, and you know what? i'm guessing if push comes to shove, you can beg, borrow or buy a coat and some boots in the snowy midwest.
i so know it's not easy not to stress, so i'm just going to be quiet and say best wishes, safe travels, and know good thoughts are going with you. see you in the new year. xo, tara

Happy holidays to you and yours.

DEAR Beth today of all days I decided to get back in the blogosphere, the same day you decided to take a small break.. Well sorry to have missed you. I whish you and your family all the warmth and happiness of the world for the comming christmas period and for the new year! I want to thank you, my far dear friend, for your friendship, without whom I honestly could not have done what all i had to do the past year.

I'm there with you, but I only have one person (myself) to pack for. Clothing to wear in Nebraska is a mystery to me, a So. California/Oregon girl. I figure no one will let me freeze to death...

What a year! Your writings give me inspiration, support and pleasure. Thanks for being such a positive presence in my world.

Have a very Merry Christmas. I live in AZ. and am taking my family of 7 to Utah to ski and am having a bit of a time trying to gather up warm clothes, so i really related to your last post. Hope the Coat showed up and really??? converse aren't the worst things she could wear in the cold...right!
