Ann, great reminder that we should take a moment to be thankful this season, rather than worry about the holidays being picture perfect.
Some of the big things I'm celebrating this season are that my dad's hip surgery was a success, my first book is still inching closer to that big release next July, and my husband has a good job that allows me to stay home with the kids.
On a smaller note, I'm currently celebrating that those same kids are playing together right now in their new tent and not even bickering (well, maybe a little). Oh, and this delicious caramel mocha I'm sipping -- yum!
Happy New Year!

Hello Staci! What wonderful "big and little" things to be thankful for and celebrate! :-D Definitely worthy of a caramel mocha (oooh, that sounds good!). Enjoy every sip and every minute!

I have a signed copy of Mercury's Rise. :) Everything you mentioned with proper punctuation. ;) The Internet and all its interesting friendships. Are we not richer because of that? I have a lot to smile about, and I intend to do more of that in the new year. Happy New Year to all!

A house full of chocolate and lots of people coming and going these last days of 2011 -- lots to celebrate here!


Happy New Year.

Hi Dani! Hope you enjoy the story (for the... what?... seventh readthrough? If you find something amiss in the final versin, don't tell me! ;-) )
The Internet, ah yes. Friendships, venues of research that would have otherwise been unobtainable... lots to celebrate there! Have a great new year, and see you around the virtual watercooler! :-)

Ann Parker

Hi Camille!
Chocolate and friends: an unbeatable combination! Enjoy! :-D

Ann Parker

Happy New Year to you too, Liz! May it bring you many good books to read and the time to read them. :-)

So this year, my company decided to send me on a business trip to the East Coast two weeks before Christmas. I took the opportunity to see the tree at Rockefeller Center and to visit my sister and BIL in Maryland where I got to meet my grandniece (3) and grandnephew (18 months).

Also, all my kids made it home for Christmas Eve and Christmas. I enjoy spending time with them, especially since I haven't seen my daughter (who is a student at UCSD)in a year!

Ann Parker

Hi Denise! All wonderful things to celebrate, for certain! :-D Thanks for coming by and commenting, and have a great New Year!


Thank you, Ann, for your great post. What am I grateful for this year? Well, one of the major things is knowing you! Happy 2012 from your fellow Poisoned Pen-ner.
