All Is Merry and Bright

Happy Holidays Dear Friends...
Yes, I know I've been absent for quite a bit.
I had to replace my digital camera at a bad time for bloggers.
But we are all set now... and I hope to see you more often again.

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas.
We certainly did.

My parents were here for five days.
Hubby and the kids were off, but I have worked a bit.
I love being a relator and helping people find new homes.
I am now the second agent in my own subdivision and working for my builder.
I will do this part time and also work with my own clients.

Very exciting plans for 2018. 

The girls are doing well and busy with school.

After two years of homeschool, my 15 yr old went back to public school.
She missed having her friends and with the move she felt isolated.
She loves her new school.

My 18 yr old is a senior and received the presidential scholarship at University of Alabama.
She will be attending at Birmingham and focusing on Medicine/Biochemistry.

We love our new area and we've been attending Christmas parties and local holiday events.

Being a realtor there is no end to the things you can attend.
Many have been decorated beautifully and catered with wonderful holiday meals.

I can tell you this is a whole new world from our little town in Indiana.
But I have enjoyed all of it.  Especially meeting new friends.

I pray you have a wonderful 2018 and all will be Merry and Bright.

This past year has been such a year of change, growth, stress... yet joy.
I look forward with wonder and thankfulness for all the next few month will bring.
