Happy New Year!!!!!
Happy New Year from our new home!!!! I hope 2012 has had a wonderful start for all of you. The holidays are a happy time for most people but can be a very difficult time as well. For some reason, more deaths tend to happen this time of year. We lost DH's daddy just before Christmas four years ago. It is strange to celebrate without him. I am praying for those of you who have experienced loss in the past or this year.
This year we began 2012 in a NEW CITY!!!!! I will give you some hints about our new place of residence....
-Our city is the fourth largest city in the state where we now live.
-We are at a much higher altitude than we were before
-Our city is home to a great aquarium, a river, and many fun restaurants and shops.
-Miniature golf, the Krystal hamburger, the tow truck, and the Moon Pie were invented in our city!
-Bessie Smith, the most famous female blues singer in the 1920s and 1930s was born here.
-Our city is absolutely beautiful but it used to be called "The Armpit of the South".
Can you guess where we live?!
