Thanks for sharing a bit of your year with us. I'm glad to have found you through Darcy...
Your work place looks sooo interesting! The juxtaposition of my two favorite things - food and antiques!


What a wonderful reflection on your year! Love your photo mosaic:)
Wishing you the best of everything in 2009, darlin' friend!


Love your mosaic and your touching post, Cindy. Amen on the colonoscopies - my husband had colon cancer and was lucky to have found it when he did - so yes everyone needs to be checked. I'm so very sorry about your mother.

Ready for a Gruen get together?? I'll email y'all but we are thinking the weekend before Valentine's Day. We were just planning it this morning! So here's to new plans...and new beginnings in 2009. :)Nancy

my eyes teared up reading this post--thinking about the year gone by. It has been quite a roller coaster. It is great to have friends to share things with and hopefully to lessen the sad times too. Glad to have you in my life Friend! I have a lot of positive thoughts about '09 in spite of the sour outlook on the news.

I second the colonoscopies. I am relieved that my dad (Mr Stoic) went in to have one after suffering some problems, and so far, so good. 3 months post surgery for tumor removal--fingers crossed.

luv ya


I love the raw honesty of your posts. I hope your new year is full of joy and peace!

Happy New Year to you. What a year it has been. I love starting my day with a cup of coffee and visiting all my favorite blogs! It is my version of reading the paper. You are a must read on my list.

I'm sitting here reading your wonderful post, wondering just what the heck I did last Feb. Guess it's a good thing I started a blog... now I can read over my year & recap next year. :) Can't wait for Paper Cowgirl. I should e-mail you about that... Anyhoo, Happy New Year, my new friend. xoxo, Joanna

Cindy, this is such a sweet post and yet so very sad. I am sorry to hear about the loss of your mom and aunt. I can only imagine that your mom was as much fun, and an inspiration, as you are.

Happy New Year, sweetie, and thank you for your sweet bloggy friendship!

Looking forward to another year of your posts.

I can't believe I didn't even know about your mother and it's been a year. I'm so sorry.
I always knew you had the talent to really rise up and it looks like that is really happening for you! Yippee!!
