Happy New Year! Another blog post that's photo free...that's weird for me!. I'm sure it won't be the norm for long! I'm still in the blogging business for now so I didn't want to let January 1st slip by without a greeting. I do enjoy a fresh start don't you? Life is full of surprises..the good and the bad. Last year was a difficult one for some of my friends and some of my family made life changing decisions. My older brother moved to Georgia, near his wife's family. I have another brother who moved permanently to Florida. With another brother living in Georgia, one in Wisconsin and us in Ohio it leaves my sister as the lone sibling in Illinois. Her kiddos and grandkiddos are there and I know her and Mom will make the best of it. It's funny that I've lived in Ashland for almost 40yrs now and I still think of Chicago as my home. Can one have 2 places that say "HOME"? Ashland is certainly home too since we have kids and grandkids, friends, jobs and a life here that I've come to enjoy. Well, I'm claiming both places and find the good and the different in them and will continue to enjoy that! So let's bring on a new year shall we? Happy 2016!
