Slow down life...slow down!

I looked at the date on my laptop this morning and thought to myself, shouldn't it still be December? and here we are in a new year and ten days into it as well. 

Our friends, Steve and Dee Dee, arrived for a visit on the 31st and we headed out to dinner after a couple of cocktails around town.  We had a quiet New Year's Eve and then sped full steam into the New Year with breakfasts, lunches, happy hours and dinners all about our wonderful town. 

Wine on the Docks is one of our new favorite places to go along with Tarpon Tavern.

The Schmidt's were suppose to head back to St. Louis on Jan. 5 and just missed the Blessing of the Fleet on the Sponge Docks that day.  A few hours later, we got a call and all flights to St. Louis and Chicago had been cancelled until the following Wed.  We had Leighton on Monday and Steve and Dee Dee were able to experience the Epiphany Celebration here in Tarpon Springs (the largest in the northern hemisphere) and the Glendi celebration that follows.  They took these wonderful pictures for me.  I'd have joined them with Leighton but it was a bit too cold for little girly.

We are slowly but surely getting back into our schedule but still trying to catch up on our rest.  To say a good time was had by all when our friends were visiting is an understatement to say the least. 

Hope your new year is wonderous so far and continues to be so...
