What a wonderful Christmas present these soldiers will be, returning home to their loved ones and may we always remember those who lost their live's fighting....Wishing you a lovely holiday! Xoxoxo

We owe these men & women and their families a huge dept of gratitude. We often forget that just because it's a holiday, there are those serving and away from their loved ones. Safe travels to you Pam. If anyone will enjoy their family and the spirit of the season it will be you. You have a heart as loving and compassionate as they come.

I adore you!

Dear Pam. I finally stopped by your store today while I was showing my Parisian mother in law around Madison Valley. What a darling place! I was sorry when I found out you were out of town! Maybe next time... Enjoy your trip. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

*** I had to stop by and tell you how WONDERFUL your tribute to all our service members truly touched me...

I hope MANY of them SEE & FEEL the recognition & appreciation of others all the time, but understandably, ESPECIALLY during the holidays.

As the wife of a now-retired Army officer, who retired (finally!) after 38 years of service, with our 28 moves under our belts, and over 18 of those years spent in Europe, my heart is naturally ALWAYS with our men & women who serve and makes us all so very, very proud... They bless us with their sheer dedication.

Thanks to YOU for acknowledging them.. it warmed my heart. I thank every soldier I see, if not by word, then by mouthing "Thank you" and putting my hand over my heart & looking them in the eye, as I pass them in public... They always see it and "get it", and they smile. And I feel good.

Warmest regards & blessings to you for remembering them during this season,

beautiful. I was just looking over some photos from our rome trip in 2007. I had forgotten I had taken several shots of servicemen in uniform at the airport. I almost cried when I saw them because I was so grateful and moved. thanks, pam and have a wonderful christmas and new year. donna

Have a great Christmas my friend!

Blue Muse said...

I was very moved by that photo and your words. I am so thankful for all those that have fought and continue to fight for the things we cherish, and for the things that we take for granted.

I wanted to come by and wish you a very, very happy new year, sweet Pam.
