Wishing you a blessed holiday season ❤

A Holiday Wish from Afar

Dear Friends,

How are you? I know, it’s been awhile since I’ve been around. I offer no excuses, so this is just a quick post to say “hi” and send my well wishes to you. Last week, I had an unexpected medical emergency that threw a wrench in my December plans. Fortunately, I’m home now and slowly on the mend to continue with the holiday shopping and tying of loose ends at work before the festivities begin.

Anyway, I hope this note finds you all happy and healthy, and I wish you a blessed holiday season that continues into 2017. I’m including two photos I found on Google of Lake Tahoe showing off its winter and holiday beauty (one of our favorite places). 

Sending Love, Hugs, Merry Christmas, and a very Happy New Year!

Hiatus Time

Dear Friends,

I’m leaving blogland for awhile (again), and I’m not sure how long I’ll be gone. My muse just left for her Christmas vacation, so the timing works out fine. 🙂
Anyway, I wish you all a peaceful, joyous, and safe time during the holidays
and a very Happy New Year! 

Sending hugs, love and blessings,
Lauren ♥

Happy Birthday, USA

 

 

Our flag proudly flies
holding men and women in

its bold stars and stripes
Colors in the sky
together we “ooh” and “ahhh”
Independence Day

Wishing you all who celebrate a fun and safe Fourth of July!
Each year we go to our county fair, which is our plan for today.
And each year it’s the same, nothing changes,
yet the experience is still fun as we view the exhibits, the animals,
ride the big Ferris Wheel, take in the great music, enjoy some wine and beer
and of course, enjoy the fair food…my faves are gyros and root beer floats. 🙂

So have a Happy time and a Wonderful Weekend!
Sharing Love and Hugs, Lauren

Early New Year Wishes :)

happy_new_year

There were…
high points to this year
low points to bear
tears to dry
from reasons to cry
lessons to learn by
adventures to try
demons to fight
wrongs to right
resolutions completed
some deleted
but looking back
we see the impact
another year of living
the gift of existing
So accelerate in high gear
no invite for fear
Pour the bubbles
forget your troubles
Clink and Chime
Celebrate Big Time!

One year later, I share this poem again
with sincere wishes of a wonderful, joyful,
productive 2015 for you all
and a safe celebration for ringing in the New Year!

With love, Lauren
