Happy New Year !



I spent NYE with my brand new Fiance' (insert big smile). We went to Watch Night Service at our church where gospel recording artist Kurt Carr performed. We really enjoyed ourselves and are still basking in the excitement of our engagement. Upon reflection last night, I remember being at the same service just 2 years ago. I blogged about it here. I met  Mr. Mixologist just 16 days later. See how the Lord can order your steps ?


We left church answered all the NYE calls & text messages & then and headed to my girlfriends house where she, her guy and their children were having a good old fashioned NYE gathering at home. We got to toast with Champagne, my Beau got to light his first Cigar of 2012 and we were treated to a wonderful home cooked breakfast prepared by all of their daughters. It was yummy. We laughed, talked, listened to music and even slow danced to the new Anthony Hamilton CD and did not get to bed until 4:30AM !

A Feast prepared by the girls !

Happy New Year ! 
Needless to say, I was moving slow this morning, but I still managed to fix a nice Brunch for my love. I made Belgian Waffles, Omelette's, Turkey Bacon and Mimosas. After relaxing together for a while, he went to go watch some football with some friends. I got the "itis" so I took my Sunday paper and went back to the bed ! LOL I am so thankful to be able to rest today AND tomorrow.

It has been a wonderful start to the New Year !

I am so very excited about what 2012 will bring !

I really appreciate all of my blog friends, readers and lurkers who come here to my little space in the world where I share so many of my thoughts. Thank you so much for reading.


Happy New Year ! Wishing you much Peace and many Blessings in 2012 !

Congratulations on the engagement and wishing you continued happiness. Yes, I agree. It's interesting how it really does appear as if God ordered those steps.

I know you are extremely happy! Good deal.

OK so I went back to January 2010 and read EVERY SINGLE POST until now. It is amazing how God can take what we think is our lowest point in life and make it the beginning of our elevation. The journey of you two is AMAZING. As someone who also has endometriosis (diagnosed between first and second son) I know that God is not through with you yet. I thank God for the journey. Your life is a true testimony. Your dedication to your nieces and nephews and the children God has surrounded you with shows that He allows you to be mother to many. I enjoyed catching up with you.
