So glad to have been a part of your 2013; no that would be a part of your 1958 to the end of days. Love you.

Linda P.

Thank you for the wonderful retrospective of 2013, Karla! I thoroughly enjoyed that walk with you down memory lane. What an eventful year you had. Sounds like it was filled to the brim with lots of happy times. I know there were some difficult ones as well. I'm so thankful Ryan is doing better after his scary health issue.

I am thrilled that I got to be a part of one of your memories, which became such a WONDERFUL memory for me--my first Birdsong! Can't wait for the next one!

Happy new year!

Karla Nathan

Linda, I sincerely hope that you can make it to #4 this spring! You are a lovely addition to the group. Happy New Year to you and to your family too.

Ryans illness was such a shock, but he was so lucky to survive and that made this the best year ever. Best wishes in the new year to you too, Leann!


I loved the recap of your year and all the beautiful photos. Yes, it was quite a year. I'm so happy for you.

Sounds like 2013 was a good year for you. Thanks for always sharing your ideas. Your blog is always in my "favorites". Hey, when will your home be in "Romantic Country" and "Where Women Create"? I'd love to make sure and purchase them. Happy 2014!

Karla Nathan

Where Women Create should be on the stands in January, the article is written and approved and ready for the next issue. Im very excited to see it. As far as Romantic Country, I dont know. I have not been interviewed yet for it. Could be a while. The same photos will be used in Country Sampler first. Ive sent the agreement for that, but havent heard from them. I dont know if they interview, I just filled out a form for them. So I keep looking when at the checkout counters to see if I am there. It will be a nice surprise when I see it!

Karen, that word belongs to you and Randy for sure!! You are the fabbest of fab. Love you both! And your husbands are pretty cute too.


All of the love and success of your year is to be applauded. And, I am thankful that the hard times brought you closer.

Wishes for a new year of joy and peace.♥


Happy new year, Karla! Fun seeing the highlights of your year!
