Happy 2011, Happy "1" Hamptontoes!

With each passing year I am amazed by the brevity of time. Not only does today mark the beginning of 2011, but it also marks Hamptontoes one year anniversary! A year has quickly passed since I sat looking at this fireplace, started blogging and hoped that you'd enjoy my musings.

Blogging has become a part of my life. I enjoy connecting with like minded individuals. I eagerly read your comments to "hear" your thoughts, enjoy receiving your e-mails, love visiting your blogs and mostly, forming friendships that have enriched my life. I truly appreciate each and every one of you. Thank you for sharing your valuable time with me on a regular basis!

Here's to you having a 2011 filled with sheer happiness and great health! Tell me, what are your desires/dreams/goals for the new year?

Only one year! Why it seems like you have been blogging longer than that...you always share such wonderful ideas and dreamy touches to add to one's surroundings. I have always admired your wall- papered hallways, closets and such. Happy 2011.

Lisa: Thanks for reeling me in. We've been running at warp speed here with getting our online store up and running and then banging into the holidays!! Now I'm catching up with piles of mail that accumulated while the girls were home. New Years resolution #1: Clean office to perfection. We shall see, but at least I started. I love your new look. Keep me in the loop!
Best,
Liz

Happy Anniversary!!!! Glad to have "met" you through your blog! PS--One of my goals for this year is to get better about being active in my yard vs. always hiring someone to do it....the other morning I woke up thinking of your beautiful garden shots you've shared in the past...would love to see more!
