I hope you all had a great Christmas and started off the New Year with many blessings! I took an unintentional extended break from the blog while my computer remained unplugged during the holidays. We finally set it up in the new office and I’m back in business!

Sorry for the belated Christmas themed photo today but I was downloading my memory cards finally and enjoyed looking through photos taken over the last few weeks. Please, go ahead, click and download this image and process it to your liking.
