A Year of Wonder


I have been keeping this secret for a long while but now I can finally let it out!



I have had the wonderful fortune of being featured in this month's Romantic Country magazine. A big thanks to Fifi for having me. :)


Wilbur was so thrilled that he finally made it to the big time!



I was also very fortunate to have some of my photographs featured in Disney's Wondertime magazine. We don't get this magazine here in Canada but I was really impressed with it - it's geared towards parenting and kids. The editor found me through Flickr - how cool is that?!



It just goes to show you...you never know where your heart will take you! Dream big! I had no idea where 2008 would lead me and now I'm really excited for 2009 especially with Janet's and my new adventure *moggit. We're having a ball over there and hope you enjoy the shenanigans! ;)

Joy, that is wonderful! Congrats! I wish you the best with your new endeavor. I've popped over to you new site, but haven't had time to really take it all in. I'll try to do that later. There's SO much going on in blogland, it's hard to keep up.

Congrats, dear friend. I had the biggest smile when I turned the page in Romantic Country and saw...YOU! What an honor and none more deserving. Yes, it has been quite a year, no? I've been priviledged to share even just a small slice of it with you through our budding friendship. Your spontaneous calls were a highlight! Best Wishes & God Bless You!! :)

Congratulations. I had that issue in my hand yesterday, didn't thumb through it and put it back because I knew i didn't have any time to look at it (I don't have time to be blogging either Ü). Now I will go pick it up and buy it!
