It is hard for me to believe that 2013 is coming to an end.  It has been a year of change, hard work, laughter and contentment.  If I'd have won the lottery it would have been perfect.  I'm just kidding - you can't win if you don't play.

A friend said to me "remember a year ago how you were so out of sorts?  Now look at you!"  She was so right.  I was out of sorts.  Moving is a big deal.  Much bigger than I ever wanted to admit.  Since I'd not really done it on my own I didn't know what to expect.  It was, in my opinion, a leap of faith.

Truly moving has turned out much better than I expected. There are many people that I miss terribly - you know who you are (yes Art that includes you) but I have to admit, that aside, I am content, happy, relaxed and healthy.  What more could a girl ask for, except maybe the Marlboro Man, but that's a whole different post.

My job is still helping the Arizona group with keeping money straight but I have added to that the task of helping people find their dream homes in southern Colorado.  And most recently taken on the task of renovating a home here in my community so that someone will have their dream home in the forest.

The new year will be a busy one but if you know me you know that's when I'm at my best and happy.  I look forward to continuing to nurture new friendships, loving the old friendships, working to make client's dreams come true, keeping the Arizona group on track, loving my family both near and far, keeping the humor with the pups and continuing to be healthy- physically, mentally and emotionally.  And I so appreciate the opportunity to share Another Day in the Forest with you.  Thank you and happy new year!!

Love and Cheers to the New Year-

Knocking on Christmas' Door

Greetings from the forest

Well here we are just days away from Christmas.  Plans are made, food in the fridge and presents under the tree.  To top it off we got a dusting of snow last night.  Made it feel very festive.  One of this weeks highlights was Galianos Italian Market and Deli.  Established in 1921 it was this old, tiny authentic market and I was in heaven.  It was in Pueblo and certainly was a great experience and I brought home lots of yummy food for Christmas dinner.  Thank Carolynn for telling me about it.  

Here are a few pictures for this week -

Sunrise this morning

Yup there is snow outside
The forecast is clear until after Christmas which will make it much easier for company to get to the house on the holiday.  

So, I will end this blog by saying I wish each and every one of you a Christmas filled with blessings, love and laughter.  I hope you are surrounded by those you love and that those who are far from me know that I miss and love you terribly, especially during the holidays.

Love and Christmas wishes -
