Well, the holidays (and our vacation) are both officially over-and I have to say, last night I was having a hard time  facing that reality!  Besides getting the chance to sleep in and not have a schedule to follow, hubby and I were blessed this past week, to be able to spend time with family and friends, work on a few projects for the house, check out a few new shops and restaurants in our area, and of course, ring in the new year!


But then I woke up this morning, and I realized that today is CD’s Country Living’s 3rd anniversary!!!

Can I get a WOO HOO!!

With that said I have a ton of catching up to do, (which is why this post is so late)-but I did want to pop in and share some exciting news-as well as, a give you-my AMAZING readers-a quick overview of what I have planned for the blog in 2016!

One of the things that  has truly frustrated me since I first started blogging, was the quality of my photo’s.  UGH!  Well, folks- hopefully that’s going to change this year! 


Santa was SUPER generous this year-and left this camera, two lenses and some fancy accessories under the tree  for me Christmas morning!  I have some practicing to do for sure-but I’m so excited to share what I’m learning-and even more, provide you with some GREAT photo’s!

And what will I be taking photo’s of?  Well, as you all know-our 100 yr old home is still a work in progress, so there won’t be a shortage of projects to complete!  We’ll being giving our living room a complete makeover-finishing the kitchen-updating the powder room-and finally-a makeover for our master bedroom! 

Since we will be doing all these rooms on a budget-there will also be several diy projects and furniture makeovers too!

And along with yummy recipes, gardening tips and budget friendly ideas, I’ll  also be teaming up with some of my blogging friends for a few challenges and guest posts!


But wait…there’s more!! 


I’ll be sharing some FABULOUS giveaways this year-and in honor of our third anniversary-one will be coming later this month!

I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all your kind words, support and friendship!  You are all truly amazing and I’m over the moon happy to be able to continue this blogging journey with you all in 2016!

Blessings and hugs,

  1. Happy Anniversary! How exciting and a new camera. I use canon and have for years. Nothing fancy just the Zoom Canon Snap Shot. I keep wanting to upgrade but I’m not sure if I’m ready because for the most part the snap shot works great, except for when I head indoors. You’ll have to let me know how you like your new camera because I’d really like to stick with canon – they keep their camera models pretty similar from what I’ve read. Looking forward to reading more from you I like your writing style!

    1. Thank you, Carole! I’m so glad you enjoy the blog! I will definitely let you know how the camera works out! I’m super excited and have been practicing every free moment I have!
