Merry Christmas

I want to wish you a Merry Christmas,

On this joyous day of the year,

When we take time to step back,

And spend time with those we love so dear

Julie and Ryan

It seems only fitting,

For me to spend some of this day with you,

And thank you for the warmth you send my way,

For your support and laughter, too

Christmas Stockings

Every day when I sit down to write,

I feel lucky to have you stop by to read,

I feel your friendship in every comment,

In every email you send to me


I wish you the happiest holiday,

Merry Christmas to you and your family,

I wish I could send each of you a gift,

For you to open under your tree


Thank you for your readership,

You keep me going and lift me up,

You make this blog all that it is,

I truly cannot thank you enough

Christmas Morning

Merry Christmas from my family to yours!

With love,

Julie, Ryan and Sadie

    Merry Christmas, Julie!
    Thanks for sharing all you recipes, I made several over the holidays, and loved every one. Pineapple soufflé is my new fave!

    Merry Christmas to you and your family! I love your blog so much that I must open your website at least three times a day for new posts. All the best!

    Sorry to say that I haven’t stopped by for awhile. Catching up though. Trying to say hi to all my fave bloggies … you especially Julie!

    Thank you for all the delightful posts and fun (most always) news you send our way. One of the best writers AND humorists around!! Thank you for being so good and kind to Sadie. The love you give Sadie is awesome. You show all of us the way to cherish our amazing pets. All the wonderful inspiration that you give to others is the best. Even though I do not personally know you, honestly, you have the best and biggest heart ever.

    On top of all of the above, you are absolutely, movie-star gorgeous! If more folks in the world were like you, what a perfect place it would be!

    Peace and Joy.
