Goodbye and A Huge Thanks

At the end of this year, 
I find myself packing my household goods, 
preparing for a move out of state.
My husband, 
who is a biologist,
has been offered an outstanding job 
in another state.

I love, love, love Boise,
but this opportunity was just too good to turn down.
So off we go
to explore a new area,
and see new sights.
We're both really jazzed about it!

I'm not sure if I'm going to return to blogging,
and I know that life is going to be crazy busy for months
as we house hunt 
and then unpack boxes.
I wanted to thank you for reading my blog
for so many years.
I've really enjoyed interacting with other
creative people
and it's been such a wonderful
experience sharing my creative endeavors
with such a positive audience.
Thanks for reading my posts,
and for being so neat to know!!

Happy New Year,


  1. Happy New Year!!
    And good luck with the new life!

  2. Thanks for a lot of inspiration I found in your blog.
    God luck for your husband in his new job (I`m a biologist,too :-))
    I´d love to hear of you again - maybe a little time after settling?
    I wish you a Very Happy New Beginning!

  3. To a fantastic new year and new experiences! Hope you come back to share with us :-).

  4. Dear Judy, I wish you and your family a good year 2017. May all wishes and hopes come true. I'm already looking forward to nice creative posts from you.
    Hearty island greetings

  5. Wow! That's big news! I thought your husband was retired since you seemed to spend so much time doing outdoor things and he did so much woodworking. I always like moving, but you seem to have such an idyllic locale....hope you find a place you love! Where ar you headed? I hope you blog again sometime.
    Happy trails!

  6. Happy Trails for you both! Don't be a stranger. I know you'll want to write again when you get settled in. Happy New Year!

  7. Hi Judy. I hope the move goes smoothly. I will miss your wonderful photographs. Best of luck to you and Marshall on the next big adventure.

  8. I'm really going to miss seeing what you're up to! I'm still hoping that when things settle down, we'll see you back here!
    Best of luck to you and a Happy New Year!

  9. Oh, Judy, sounds exciting, but I actually have tears in my eyes at the prospect of not seeing your blog pop up with a new post! I, for one, would love to share in this new journey with you, so I hope you get the urge to post updates every so often! Good luck! 2017 is going to be your year! XO

  10. Good Luck with your new venture!!

  11. I am going to miss your blog Judy - hope you will pop in occasionally to let us know how you are getting on. Good luck. xx

  12. Wish you all the best, Judy! Hope to read you again!

  13. Alles Gute im neuen Jahr 2017 und mögen sich deine/eure Wünsche erfüllen. Auch für den Umzug, die neue Gegend, die neue Arbeit, neue Nachbarn, usw., wünsche ich nur das Beste. Trotzdem hoffe ich sehr, wieder einmal von dir zu lesen. Lass dir die nötige Zeit, um alles zu ordnen, aber ich würde dich hier sehr vermissen.
    Herzliche Grüsse
