render grace...

i want to wish you all a happy new year!-- a fresh new start, a time to reflect.

my outdoor world looks like this today.  it's so bright and pretty, as it covers up the ugly remnants of last summer's drought.   

our christmas time was wonderful--my best gift was spending time with my most favorite people in the whole world:)  here's my christmas table centerpiece, inspired, no, totally copied, from donna at funky junk!

my new years resolution-to render grace each day.  have you picked your resolution?

my 2012 most viewed posts are on my sidebar, in case you missed something.

--thank you for stopping by, and i'll see you next year!
