It’s been an extraordinary year here at An Extraordinary Day!
- It’s been a year where I’ve been forced to dig deep and get creative.
- It’s been a year of discovery as my eyes have undergone a sort of training to see life and things in a whole new way.
- It’s been a year where I’ve learned that we really can have beautiful homes and decorate with a zero dollar budget.
- It’s been a year of discovering the most amazing elements in nature for decorating our homes.
- And…It’s been fun. Truly.
But most of all, I’ve discovered that An Extraordinary Day! has the most encouraging and supportive readers. I try to keep an upbeat attitude and perspective as I walk through the mud and muck of life and you bless me in return with your sweet kind words. You are the best!!!
The blog has grown a lot this year….
Those of you who have been with me since the beginning….thank you for your faithfulness. Many of you are new to the An Extraordinary Day! family…welcome!! I hope you really do find this your place of joy and inspiration. How I wish I could meet you in person and enjoy a nice chat over a cup of cocoa. But, since that isn’t a real possibility…I can’t tell you how much I enjoy reading your comments and getting to know YOU, here. This is truly a community of extraordinary people. I’m so blessed to have you here. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

Twenty Thirteen. Wow!
You were one fast year.
You also delivered a full spectrum of surprises. You didn’t even wait. Nope.
On January the second, my husband walked into the office excited about a new year on the job and in a few minutes discovered that he didn’t have a job any longer. Twenty Thirteen, you may have meant to play mean and dirty…but we have a God who fights for us. Sure…there is no ‘real’ job. Yet. Actually none at all as I type this. But, God’s got us covered and he has something pretty exciting waiting for us. I can’t wait to see his amazing plans for us in Twenty Fourteen.
And just in case you think this is all about me….God’s got some extraordinary plans for YOU, too!
Wishing you an Extraordinary 2014!
