Happy New Year…isn’t it about family!

Hubby and I are gone to the camp for the remainder of the holiday season since we are both off work. We plan to break in the New Year ultra urban redneck style. One of the downfalls of being out in the middle of nowhere is that means no Internet access. So instead of my usual posts for today and tomorrow, I shall bring you two videos that I love.

My apologies in advance for the late replies to your comments, my lack of twittering, and commenting on your blogs. I will make up for it in 2012 by going hog-wild social media crazy on your blogs.

Before I sign-off till 2012, I must say that this year has been one of delightful surprises. First, I found all of you and I can’t begin to tell you how much my world has changed. Discovering each of you, my new blog friendships, has made my heart explode with love and appreciation. Each of you makes my world a more enriched and incredible place to be. So thank you!

Second, has been reconnecting to my writing and committing to take myself on the novel writing adventure. All of your support and encouragement (and ass-kicking shoves…MUAH!)has truly meant the world to me. I am not sure I would have dipped my toes into my dream without it. Y’all have made this writing thing a safe place for me….and that’s a gift I will never take for granted.

All that to say…Here’s to YOU! And to our continued friendships, laughter, and fun….to the adventures and memories to come…and here’s to all of our health and happiness!




  1. Happy New Year Natalie!

  2. I’m having a goose bump attack! Thanks for your inspiring, gratitude-filled post. I relate big time and am uberliciously thankful for you. 🙂 Stay well and have the BEST time bringing in the new year! I have a great feeling about it for all of us. *HUGS*

  3. I completely relate to what you experienced this year in a big way. We’ll miss you while you are away from the interslice. 🙂

  4. And rightbackatcha girl with those heartfelt sentiments! It has been a year of making some AWE-some connections with support and friendship that reminds me the world really is a good place. The laughter and creative humour that accompanies so many of our interactions is such a bonus in the midst of slogging away with our “writerly” endeavours. I loved August’s comment above about 2012 and feel the same way. Let it be!

  5. Happy new year, sweetheart! 2012’s going to be fabulous!

  6. Happy New Year Natalie! Enjoy your break for civilization and cuddly in the new year with your sweetie! Can’t wait for an AWESOME 2012!

  7. Natalie, you have brought so much laughter into the lives of all of us! We’re grateful to have you!
    Have a happy New Year celebration with your Love, stay warm and safe and we’ll see you on the other side!

  8. Well that video made me cry. Then again, I often cry during CSI:Miami. Now I’ll have to go back and read some of your funny posts before I can get back to writing.

  9. Awww, we wuvs you too! Have a great new year and see you soon!

  10. Thank you my new friend for making 2011 so fab! Have a wonderful time with Hubby and see you in 2012! 🙂

  11. Happy New Year Natalie! Hope you and your hubby enjoy a wonderful holiday break. Looking forward to sharing 2012 with you!

  12. Happy New Year, Natalie! Enjoy the time off with your husband and relax. You deserve it after all the work and support of others you have put in this year. I’ll see you rocking in 2012! 🙂
