The doors we open and close each day decide the lives we live.
- Flora Whittemore, author

So true.  In the last year I have had some significant opening and closings of doors.  I had adopted the best little girl in the world.  I  had surgery to help me lose weight.  I started a new job closing the doors on a career I had been in for over 21 years.  I have had friendship doors open and close in the past year and am fine with that.  I believe all friendships go a course.  And now we are back in a business that we left over 8 years ago and I can see so many doors opening.

I am so excited about the doors that are opening and expect that we will have some close along the way as we become different people and lead totally different lives.  It is a journey I am ready and willing for...let's go!!

One True Friend

If you have one true friend you have more than your share.
- Thomas Fuller, English clergyman & historian

This is a quote that was on one of my www.sparkpeople.com daily emails.

I just had to blog about it...

I have at least four people in my life I consider true friends, so I have way more than my fair share and a day does not go by that I do not count myself blessed for these people in my life...We all live far apart now and most of them have met each other, which is a great bonus for me of course...but distance has not diminished the love I have for these people in  my life or the trust I have in them.

I hope you too have at least one true friend.

Vacation - December 2011

We had a great time with Mom and Dad in Orlando...it was tiring, but a great vacation...

Disney Vacation 2011
I took a ton of pictures and I still need to purchase the pictures taken by the Disney photographers with our Photopass, but here are a good many for you to get an idea of how the trip went...

We were there for four days, sadly Izza got ill on the 4th day after just one ride so we ended up not doing anything that fourth day and that really was supposed to be the big ride day...We went on the Space Mountain and though she was excited to go on it, we believe she held her breath and caused herself to get a migraine on the ride.

So, we have plans to go back for Halloween this year for a weekend in October to experience the Mickey's Not-so-Scary Halloween party...and have a day at Universal Studios...Can't wait!!
