Here Is To The New Decade


As 2019 comes to a close

and we begin not only a new year but a new decade as well

join me in celebrating both the passing year

and all that we found good in it

and welcoming 2020 with eager anticipation.

I hope the New Year will bring renewed hope,

peace, happiness and good health into your life.

Happy New Year!

Thank you for taking time out of your busy days throughout the past years to stop by and read Back Road Journal. I always appreciate when you leave comments to let me know that you have enjoyed the time spent here reading about our travels or learning about a new recipe I have created for you to try.
