My sister, my friend...Melinda

Happy New Year!!! I hope everyone out in blog land had a safe 'Happy New Year'. We didn't go anywhere. We decided to stay home and relax and watch movies. I had to work until 6:30. I was asleep before midnight. I just couldn't keep my eyes open. The holidays really wiped me out this year. These are pictures of me and my sister at her house. I was acting silly! She has a blog now called 'Meme's Place'. She just started it. She lives in Kentwood, La. She and her husband have a hardware store there. If you get a chance, pay her a visit and leave her a comment. She would love it.

I have a good many New Year's resolutions this year. One of them is that I plan on spending more time with my little sister this year. We use to have so much fun together. Seems like we just got way too busy with other things this year and didn't spend enough time together. I miss our times going to thrift stores together and having scrapbook parties! This past year has been too busy. I want this new year to be a year of doing more of what I like to do. I want to have more fun times with my family and friends. I want to take time to 'stop and smell the roses'.

Lee, thank you for visiting and leaving a comment. It is very much appreciated.

You and your sister almost look like twins. Congrats for your son. My daughter graduated from UC Davis this past June. It't great to see our children succeed.

Hi hon! How are you? I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year's!

Wow, you and your sissy are just knockouts! Pretty, pretty pretty girls! :)

Did you get my Christmas card? Let me know. Some got sent out so late. I had five boxes of cards at the start and then when it came down to the eleventh hour I was needing another box! My hand was so cramped up from writing! It was so much fun though! Now I'm ready to send out Valentine's!

Lot's of hugs,
Deanna :)

What a great resolution--to spend more time with your sis. I also am trying to do more of what you put on my blog, decluttering, putting more in my booth, etc. Happy New Year!
