It’s quarter hour to the New Year and I suddenly realize, I’ve got nothing incredible to say. I delivered multiple Christmas posts and completely forgot I needed to have a deep year reflection post done by now. I suspect most everyone is right where I am. Clueless, forgetful, and bloated.

So here’s what I’ve got. My lengthy wordy about 2014 post is coming soon because , duh. And I am certain that this coming year will be great because it should include, at some point, no diapers !!! I am so very grateful to everyone who has visited here, subscribed, and existed in my Shalavee universe. Love to you all.

And Happy New Year from me and mine to you and yours.

Love, Shalagh


  1. A very Happy New Year to you, lovely Shalagh! Here’s to peace, joy, boundless creativity and no diapers in 2015! Love you much.

    • Did I mention the last time I saw you how lucky I and anyone else who knows you is to have you in my life. You are a doll Christina and I thank you so much for bestowing me with your grace and wisdom.
      Love to you and the little mister.
      And Happy New Outlook Year,

  2. All the best to you and your family in the New Year Shalagh! I look forward to more stories from Shalavee’s universe, and I wish more creativity time for you too! How wonderful your photo is of Eamon & Fiona together in the chair, drawing in notepads. I love it! Best wishes also to Mark today in his surgery.

    • Thank you tons for your well wishes. I’m banking your love for later. And he’s just fine and less whiny than anticipated. It’s really a great thing that he took care of himself in this way.
      Love to you and good wishes for your plans too,

  3. Well, you saw my deep reflective post. *cough cough* The important thing is that we are still all here. Yay, for no diapers! That is something to celebrate. I hope you have a great year, Shalagh!

    • You are so funny Amy. I loved your post. And it inspired me. Because they’re better in many ways when they’re spontaneous. I hope this year is better than the last for both of us.

  4. Makes me feel better to know I am not the only one whom is unprepared. It will come to you in time. I enjoyed your family photos family time the way a Christmas should be. Happy New Year.

    • Yes, I work so hard to do this blog but I was also the keeper of Christmas spirit and it’s a perspective that takes work to maintain. Thank you and when I get an epiphany, I’ll share it. Thanks again Druime.
