Wishing You Peace At Christmas And Throughout The New Year
Merry Christmas Karen and wishing you a peaceful New Year!
Thank you Donna, I hope you are well and look forward to hearing from you and seeing your lovely gardens in the New Year.
May the peace of the season be with you during these days and in the coming days of 2017. … PS: Treats at my place later today (after 5).
Thank you for your lovely wish Frank and the invite. 🙂
Merry Christmas Karen – I hope you have a lovely holiday 🙂
Thank you Mad Dog, enjoy Christmas wherever you will be.
Karen, I hope your holiday is fabulous in every way! May all the magic and beauty of the season fill your home and heart with much happiness. I have enjoyed your blog posts all year!
Thank you for your lovely wish and kind words Deb, they are much appreciated.
Merry Christmas Karen. Looking forward to sharing food, travel and fun with you in 2017.
Thank you Penny, I’m looking forward to your visits and your sweet comments.
Karen, have a wonderful Christmas and a happy and healthy 2017. Your blog is great, filled with traveling tips and great recipes. When I was in Munich this year I enjoyed eating in the restaurants you had recommended. Thank you so much.
Thank you for your lovely holiday wish and compliment Gerlinde. I always hope that my travel tips will help others and I’m happy that I was able to give you some ideas for your trip to Munich. 🙂
And the same to you. That little church looks like the one I attend.
Thank you Cynthia. The church in the painting is the Atkinson Congregational Church in Atkinson, New Hampshire. It was painted by a dear friend of ours when we all lived in the same little town.
And a very happy Christmas to you too, Karen, and wishing you a wonderful 2017!
Thank you Kay for your nice wish.
Have a wonderful holiday
The same to you Jovina, Merry Christmas.

Karen-I wish you a very Merry Christmas and a healthy and happy New Year.
I appreciate your nice wish Susan, the same to the two of you.
Karen, I wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas and the Happiest of New Years! Linda

Merry Christmas to You and Yours Karen and a very Happy, Safe & Healthy New Year!!!
I wanted to pop on by to let you know that I recently updated my blog in case you have a moment to drop by and to thank you for all of your wonderful posts through the years.
I have decided blogging must be put to the back burner permanently but that fact doesn’t mean that I haven’t appreciated and enjoyed the past years of getting to know you, your family and your blog. It has been wonderful!!! Thank you so much for all the time and energy you have shared with us. Thank you, Karen…Louise:)
What a lovely surprise to hear from you Louise. Thank you so much for your very kind words and wish, they are much appreciated. It has been a pleasure to have your friendship through our blogs and you will be missed. Do stop by for time to time if you can to say “hello”.
Merry Christmas to you and yours, Karen! What a lovely little painting.
Thank you Kathryn and I’m happy you like the painting. My best friend from New Hampshire painted it and I bought it from her. It was a treasure as she passed away shortly after.
Oh no, I’m so sorry about your friend. I’m glad you have a treasured keepsake from her.
May there just be SOME peace and understanding! And do not let all the innocent children hurt because of matters they do not understand and in which they have no options . . . does it really matter what their skin colour of the faith they were born into . . . as we supposedly see them, they are ‘God’s Children’ . . . Higher Powers, please make us wiser . . .
Well said Eha, all the best to you in the coming year.
Merry Christmas Karen! I have enjoyed your posts this year and look forward to your adventures in 2017!
Thank you Deb, I appreciate your lovely comment and wish. I’m happy to know you will be following along on our new adventures in the coming year.
So very happy to hear from you, Maureen…thank you for your wish.
Merry Christmas, Karen…do you miss the snow this time of year? Haha
Thank you for your wish Marigene. The snow made Christmas special and beautiful but it created real problems some years. Christmas day we are having lunch at one of our favorite restaurants located right on the beach, so I’ll be looking at the ocean instead of an orchard covered in snow. Life is different but very good. 🙂
Merry Christmas Karen!!!
Thank you Julie, the same to you and your family.
To you, as well, Karen!
Thank you David.
Wishing you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! I hope you enjoy the festive season. 🙂
Thank you Grace, we will indeed do our best to enjoy this wonderful season.
Merry Christmas, Karen! 💜🎄😙
The same to you Fatima. I can’t find your new blog…perhaps you can leave a link.
Thank you, Karen. You can find my new blog at email@example.com It would be lovely to see you there.
Hi Fatima, I just found your comment in my spam file…have no reason why. That you for the info on your new blog although I have had a hard time getting on, I keep getting a 404 notice.
Hi, Karen. I wonder why my comment went in the spam box, since I am a follower of your blog. I swear I find this internet world a bit baffling sometimes. Glad you saw it, though, as I tend to forget to check my spam box!!! 👍💖
I don’t check my spam box that often either. Would you believe there were five of you that didn’t belong there…I don’t know why it happens, especially on followers.
And a very merry Christmas and happy new year to you, Karen! Your posts are always such a joy to read. Looking forward to sharing more in the new year.
I appreciate your kind words Rosemary, it is always a pleasure when you stop by and I’m happy that you will be following along in the new year. Wishing you the healthiest of New Years.
Karen, I wish for you and yours a very Merry Christmas and may you have a peaceful and joyful Holiday.
Thank you Southern, for your lovely wish.
Merry merry Christams Karen~
Et bonne année 2017.
Joyeux Nöel, Monique. Enjoy the holiday with your wonderful family.
Warm, cozy wishes for a wonderful Christmas, Karen!
Little-by-little, I am catching up on all of your exciting travels. Thanks so much for taking us along! ♡

Thank you dear Karen Same wishes for you too, Merry Christmas. Love, nia
Thank you Nia, you are such a sweet friend to have. I think of you often and this message of peace is especially important to you, I know. 🙂
Many thanks, Karen. And to you and your family too. 🙂
Thank you Jo, I hope you had a lovely holiday with your family even though you missed such an important member of it. Faith teaches us that he is still with you. God Bless.
Good evening Karen, I hope you are having fun eatIng your lunch by the sea. It must feel a little strange after living with snowy winters, but I feel sure you will have adjusted to living in the sunshine very quickly.
Wishing you all the best for 2017.
Yes Daphne, it is very different. No sweaters or coats, no snow boots or scarfs. No plowing snow, shoveling snow or even seeing a white landscape but yes, it is very easy to adjust to. Thank you for your lovely wish.
Wishing you and your family a very Merry Xmas and a blessed New Year, Karen!
Thank you very much Denise, I appreciate your wish.
Merry Christmas .. have a day with your family 😃
Thank you Julie, we had a wonderful Christmas day.
Beautiful painting. I love it. Happy New Year to You and Yours.
Thank you Sartenada, I’m happy to know that you enjoyed the painting…it was done by a very good friend. I appreciate your wish and hope that you too have a happy New Year.
Wishing you joy and light.
I appreciate your kind wish, Ladyfi.
Merry Christmas, Karen! Peace and joy to you and yours!
Thank you Judy, we had a lovely Christmas.
Wishing you peace and happiness as well, Karen. For my Christmas cards this year (of which I’ve only sent a few) I’ve chosen a nostalgic scene somewhat similar to yours. It’s been a challenging year, and there’s comfort in the old scenes and memories.
Thank you for your wish Marlene. I totally agree about old scenes and memories giving us comfort. 🙂
Hope you had a very Merry Christmas and wishes for a most happy and blessed new year!!
Thank you for your lovely wish, Liz. We indeed had a nice Christmas and are looking forward to the coming year.
A lovely post. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas, too, and are enjoying the rest of the holiday season.
Hi Beth, I’m happy to know that you enjoyed my Christmas greeting and I appreciate your wish, thank you.

Thank you for your nice wish Sissi, we did indeed have a nice Christmas and are looking forward to the new year.
Beautiful wishes and gorgeous image. Did you paint that? It looks like ‘Karen’ in the signature on the watercolor.
Hello, Merry Christmas 2016 and Happy New Year 2017, the painting is very fascinating, nice textures and tone colors! Have a nice day Karen!
And to you and your family, Karen. To good health and happiness in 2017.
