Happy New Year 2010

Hubbie brought flowers home to start the evening nice and cozy by the fire.

Then we went out to eat a nice meal at a Bed and Breakfast local that we kept driving past after all these years and finally made a reservation to try it out. And it was DE-licious!

There were pretty New Year's table decor in a lovely old house, reminded me of my old house before we moved here. Body Guard had a seafood bisque with the year 2010 written in cream on top. A sneak taste was utterly divine.
The food was awesome. I had Chicken Oscar which was a very delicate flattened chicken breast with crab sauce topping, stir-fried baby beans and carrots, and the best mashed potatoes I've ever eaten in my life.

Then we came back home, got the fire place going again and relaxed on the sofa to watch the countdown in New York plaza.
All I can say is-----WOW at the number of people there tonight!

I know we have a new camera but we still are quite amateur at some of the functions and this pic is very dark.....however, this is me and Miss Abbie wishing you the best of 2010!

Here's to thanking all my blogger friends for their prayers and support and kindness that goes beyond what I ever dreamed possible. The week off from work has definitely helped recoup from a rough spot in the year here.
In looking back through 2009, I can certainly say that it's been a stressful year but through it all, I've grown more and learned lessons from life.
It's tested my inner strength and faith.

A new beginning. A new year. A fresh new start with some improved perspectives on coping.

A year, I hope, to be filled with more adventures, good health, and companionship with my better half.

New Year's resolutions are just goals we try to achieve. Sometimes it's very hard to keep them and I've decided this year to make one resolution. To simplify life as much as possible and redirect my energies into those that love to share the journey with me.

I hope you and your families have healthy, happy, and prosperous years ahead and know that you have become part of my heart this year and hopefully through the year ahead as well.

Goodbye 2009.
