Happy New 2009 ~ My Charmed Life


Well, its been said alot, but Happy New Year. I am really looking forward to this year. Alot of things are falling into place. I am ready to leave the past. This is my 50th year, its a milestone of sorts. On to the future and all it will bring. But moving on isnt forgetting the past. All of the events that have brought me to here and now will always be special. My favorite way of documenting my life has been my charm bracelet. My Mother gave it to me when I was 16 for Christmas. It had a Merry Christmas charm on it and a Sweet 16 charm. They are my favorites, but I have faithfully added to my charm bracelet over the years. There are charms for my marriage, (havent found a divorce charm.lol), my two daughters, 3 granchildren, hobbies, travel, cats, purses, teddy bears and even jeans with a hole in the knee. There is a couple of events I need to find charms for now. Its always fun looking for just the right one.

So,,, I move on, remember my past and truly hope each of you have a very Healthy, Safe, Happy, Creative, and Successful New Year!!!! hugs, gail

Hi Gail, Love your gorgeous header. And I think it's fabulous that you have kept your charm bracelet going all these years. I still have the one I was given in high school and reading your post makes me want to get it out and wear it. Happy, happy pink New Year to you and yours. xo Lynn P.S. Love your kitties...that picture is hilarious.

Hi Gail,
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog and leaving a post. It has been a tough year and I am still trying to work through it all. Your post about your charm bracelet gave me a few minutes of happy thoughts of all of the charms we have added to Tessa and Bella's charm bracelets. I hope they will be cherished reminders of what they mean to us. Wishing you a happy and prosperous new year.
