Wishing each of you a happy and healthy holiday season. Thank you for reading and for following along. Your friendship, comments and support have meant a great deal to me. I will be taking a blogging break from now until January. I look forward to seeing you then.

  1. Love the photos – I feel Iโ€™m right there with you! Have a blessed Christmas and weโ€™ll look forward to your return! I managed to punch out one blog to cover November and December and I thought that was a real coup. ๐Ÿ˜‚

    Iโ€™ll be offline too – not only do I travel to the San Francisco Bay Area soon for Christmas to see all my children, grandkids, mother-in-law, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, and last but not least my sisters and my Mom. But somehow I have to fit a move in there as well ๐Ÿ™€. I feel a New Year, new situation blog a-brewing! ๐Ÿ‘Œ

    Much love to you and yours Donna.

    Your Sun City friend,
    Susan Grace


  2. Hi Donna! Good for you Donna! I have a “plan” to rest over most of the holidays but I’m not going “cold turkey” ๐Ÿ™‚ like you. Enjoy your time together and I look forward to your words of wisdom and spending time with you again next year! ~Kathy


    1. Hi, Sue – Thank you for reminding me about the new decade coming up. That makes it even more exciting. I look forward to keeping in touch! Have a wonderful holiday and RELAX, RELAX, RELAX! (That’s definitely my plan). ๐Ÿ˜€


  3. Your home looks warm and festive, Donna! Enjoy your break and have a wonderful Christmas and New Year! I start my break on 12/22 and come back 19th. Taking the same road trip but staying in San Diego and Phoenix longer.

    Just wanted to send you a note on Christmas morning to wish you and Richard the Merriest Christmas ever. Looking forward to more of your Reflections in 2020. Have a Blessed New Year. Joe


  11. Here I am, on January 3, looking at your beautiful holiday photo of home and loving couple, reminiscing already of the great December that’s passed, and hopeful now for a new creative New Year. Happy 2020! xo


    1. Happy New Year to you too, Pam. I hope that you had a wonderful holiday. Richard and I have had tons of time with family and friends, and lots of visitors. Our youngest son returns to England this coming Friday. I am still on my blogging break, probably for another week or so. I look forward to catching up with everyone again soon!

  12. Hi Donna and Richard – just got here … better late than never. Your home looked lovely and ready for a happy festive season – I’m sure you had fun … with lots of interesting outings. Here’s to a very happy 2020 – and all the best for the years ahead. Cheers Hilary


    1. Hi, Hilary – Happy 2020 to you too! It was fun opening this post today and seeing our living room at the height of our Christmas decorations — which have all now been taking done. We still have family staying with us for another few days. After that, I will resurface from my blogging break. I hope that you had a wonderful holiday. I look forward to catching up soon!
