Happy 2013

It's so quiet here at the Lakehouse.
No Christmas music playing. Just the sweet sounds of the Classics by the London Symphony Orchestra.

The decorations are packed away.
Just a few twinkly lights left in the hearth.

Last night the house was aglow with candle light, however...and the fragrance of balsam filled the air.

 The only evidence of the holidays is a lone snowman towel hanging in the kitchen. Although I need no reminder that it's winter.

New Years Day came, leaving me another year older.
Age doesn't bother me. I feel blessed to be here, and have more time with loved ones.

My wish for you in 2013 is good health, happiness, and that you are able to see each and every matter how small they may seem.
Love to you.......


  1. Love your photos and your day sounds perfect. Blessings to you as this year unfolds, and may you see your dreams come true. Love you back!

  2. Simple wishes that mean so much, health and happiness.
    Love your beautiful china pieces. Still Christmas here..will get it put away this weekend.
    Your day sounds lovely to me!

  3. Debbie, You must know that I wish you the best of new years. I wish good health and happiness to everyone at your house. You are right, we need to grab that bit of blessings and hold tight. Stay warm and safe. xoxo,Susie

  4. Wishing the same for you, Debbie. Happy Birthday!

  5. Happy New Year, Dear Debbie! Wishing you good health and JOY in the coming year...


  6. Wishing you a happy new year Debbie.

  7. Well...Merry Christmas, Happy New Year and Happy Birthday, Debbie! I have a birthday coming up soon, too. Not older, just wiser! :)

    I am trying to put my Christmas things away but I keep getting interrupted or I start to procrastinate...I am terrible!

    Enjoy your weekend, dear friend.


  8. Sounds nice and relaxing. I just wanted to stop by and wish you a Happy New Year. xo

  9. Happy belated birthday, Debbie! Hope you had a wonderful one! Those roses are amazing, love their color. It's cold and snowy here too. The tree is still up, I am taking it down tomorrow. I'm so ready for a fresh new year! Wishing you the best in 2013!

  10. Happy belated birthday, Debbie. I love the fresh sweetness of your blog today. I miss seeing you more often but I know your life is busy. I hope your home sells and that you can move forward with your life. xo Diana

  11. Wishing you a Happy Belated Birthday and a Happy New Year. Your post is so pretty and uplifting!

  12. And a happy new year (birthday?) to you, Debbie!

  13. Wishing you a wonderful new year Debbie full of love, peace and joy!

  14. Hi Debbie,
    It does seem a little sad when all the Christmas decorations have been put away but at the same time it's wonderful to know that we have another New Year before us. I know that you are hoping for change this year and so am I. Here's to a fabulous one for both of us.


  15. Hi Debbie ..
    Happy belated birthday ! and oh it does look a little bare after we take down the decorations...but I always remind myself that the days are getting longer as we head towards spring and that's always a cheery thought for me ! Happy 2013 !
