I love that Sascha Zuger gave you the props in her article! and glad the boys participated. :) Mohonk seems to bring out all of the good in its visitors. Looking so forward to Vermont. Julie

Mohonk looks amazing, but not being a winter kind of girl, would love to see it in spring or summer!
Happy holidays and Christmas wishes to everyone.

Can't wait until Vermont...although as fast as time is going, it will be here in a blink!
Glad tidings and good cheer to you and yours!


Wishing you and yours the Merriest Christmas and much joy and creativity in the New Year! (I plan to start blogging (panic attack!!!) and to create more. I find that creating makes me happy and that is the goal, to be happy.) :)
