Happy New Year 2013

2012 was an event-filled year in the Lowry household. In March we added Bailey,a Cocker Spaniel/King Charles adorable bundle of energy and love to our family. Like all puppies she has been a challenge at times. But, we don't know what we'd do without her.

In July we took a gamble: flying to Oregon to meet people we only knew through blogging. It was one of the best weeks of our life and we fell in love with the people and beauty of Oregon.

In September R.T. the RV joined our life. After talking about getting one for years but always delaying because of the costs, we finally decided to "just do it."

I have no idea what 2013 will hold. But, I approach it with eyes wide open and a firm belief that my satisfying retirement will continue.

Stay safe over the next few days, reflect and rejoice on your blessings.

I'll have a fresh post on Wednesday for 2013.

Happy New Year.
