HAPPY NEW YEAR!
I wanted to share with you that I had the chance to do a guest post yesterday on Lemon and Raspberry’s New Year’s Day Blog Party! What a fun way to start 2013 and so much available in one day.
Amy always provides lots of information and motivation for all kinds of business and personal projects throughout the year and this is the way she kicks it off.
You’ll find tips and inspiration about Memory Keeping, Blogging, Photography, Travel, Marketing and just general creativity and productivity. She also provides creative prompts for journaling the details of your life.
My post is called Memory Keeping with a Purpose. If you have a few minutes stop by and say hi to Amy, check it out and tell her that I sent you. She’s running a free mini online workshop and several giveaways as part of the New Year’s Blog Party, so sign up to participate or for a chance to win one of the prizes.

Well, you’ve probably noticed that I haven’t been posting here much lately. I’m sorry to neglect this blog, but I’m happy to announce that I’m launching a new blog focused on Traveling with Purpose!
You can find out all about it here!
I will still be posting here occasionally, but for the near future my focus will be on getting the new blog going and building a community there. I would appreciate so much if you would help me in any or all of the following ways:
- Visit the new website and share it with your friends who love to travel
- Sign up on the site to receive blog updates and/or the TWP newsletter
- LIKE us on Facebook
- Follow us on Twitter
- If you are aware of any great organizations that offer either service-oriented or short-term educational travel, please let me know so I can contact them and share about them on the blog.
- If you have suggestions or ideas for the site drop me a line as well.
I look forward to staying in touch both here and at TravelingwithPurpose.com.
Just for fun, here’s one of my favorite pictures from a recent trip to my hometown of Vermilion, Ohio. This is the view from the pier just a short walk from where we stayed in the neighborhood of Mitiwanga. It’s filled with “beach cottages” of all shapes and sizes. So quaint and nostalgic. I love being there. (click the photo to enlarge and see my sister on the steps)
And below is the cottage that we rented for an impromptu family reunion. We took the trip with my 88-year-old mother who wanted to go back one more time to visit our extended family (mostly from my dad’s side). We had aunts, uncles, cousins, 2nd and 3rd cousins and friends all drop in for open house gatherings. I’ll bet we had nearly 50 people there on a single day. What a blast it was!
Thanks for stopping by and for visiting my new blog and helping me get the word out. I appreciate you so much!

Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful holiday and are looking forward to 2011.
Our holiday season was quite unconventional in many ways. In fact we haven’t even had a chance to celebrate with my husband’s family yet, but we’re moving on to the new year and looking forward to many good things ahead.
If you’re looking for something fun to do to ring in the new year, I thought you might be interested in the Lemon and Raspberry Blog Party on Saturday, January 1st.
Amy will be posting every hour for 24 hours and will be offering some fun giveaways as well. Check out her blog for a preview of what’s coming up. I’m sure you’ll love it!
