Ringing in another year. . . . . . .

"Thank you" - each and every one of you, very dear readers and 
commenters who followed A Breath of Fresh Air for yet another year. 

Come February I will start my eighth year of blogging. Some of you have been 
with me all this time, and I appreciate that so much. 
Others were new this past year and I thank you for joining me on my journey. 
Sharing the ups and downs of daily life, whether on a rough ocean miles from 
home, or here tucked away in the cottage at the kitchen stove, has been a lot of 
fun and allowed me to visit with you in your special corner of the world also.

May your new year be one of peace, joy, good health, happiness, prosperity
 and adventure. Please continue sharing your interests, your photos, your 
creativity, your stories, through blogging. . . . . . .as I plan to do. It brings much 
pleasure to my life, and hopefully to yours also.


  1. A very Happy New Year to you and yours Mary! It has been an absolute delight following you over the past few months and long may you continue! xx
