Entrance to the Stone Creek community


As most of you know, over the holidays we moved from our home in southeast Ocala to a new villa in the Stone Creek community in southwest Ocala. This is the main entrance leading into the community.

Even though we've been absent from the blogosphere for a few weeks, we want to thank all of our special friends in the photoblogging world for wishing us well at Christmas and giving us such great support during our move. We deeply appreciate your concern and your kind words.

In return and in gratitude, we send our best wishes to each of you for a wonderful New Year!

[While posting/commenting will be sporadic for a time, we hope to soon be back blogging as usual and sharing in the visual wonders you provide from around the world!]

Leif Hagen said...

What? They didn't have a "Welcome Jacob CDP blogger and Lois Anne" sign at the entryway?! I'm disappointed! You must have been really disappointed! Wishing you both a very Happy New Year - 2010!

Paula said...

I know all about moving during the holidays. Yikes! Have a great New Year's Eve and sail into the new year with joy! Much love, P

This is a great community, isnt' it? I mean City Daily Photo and related blogs. I'm sure we've all been thinking of you. YOUR new community looks wonderful, too. It would be nice to be welcomed home by that sight! I hope you had a nice rest from typing, although I doubt it was much of a real rest. All the best to both of you in your new home!

Have a wonderful 2010 and beyond, in your new home.

That is some entrance! Looks like a really nice place you've moved to. Moving is a pain, I sometime think the unpacking is worse than the packing.
Bonne Année !
Cheers.

Ooh, your new community looks beautiful, if that entrance is any indication. When you've sold your previous house and are settled in well, with no more distractions, I hope you'll give us a tour of Stone Creek!

Wishing you and Lois Anne a new year blessed with joy, peace, prosperity, good health and much, much love.

What a beautiful welcome you'll receive each time you come home. I hope we get to see more of the new digs. Welcome home, Jacob and Lois Anne!

Best to you and yours for a healthy, wonderful New Year. I will be disappearing for awhile, myself. Surgery is in another week and will prevent me from shooting for some time. But, to quote The Terminator, "I'll be back."

Lois said...

Happy New Year Jacob and Lois Anne! I know you are glad to be done with the move and into your new home.

Virginia said...

Looks like a good move to me! Happy New Year to you and your family. We've missed you!

A sunny view, and a happy new year to you. A move is always exhausting - hope it is all settling down!

I'm glad you haven't forgotten us ;-) and I hope you are settled in soon. Meanwhile, all the best in 2010!

«Louis» misread this. At first, he thought you had written that you had gotten Stoned at the Creek...

Julie ScottsdaleDailyPhoto.com said...

This looks like a wonderful place. I hope you both can take time from unpacking to toast the new digs

Don and Krise said...

Greetings Jacob and Lois Anne. I hope you're managing to keep hold of your sanity during the move. Just know you two have been on our minds during the holidays. I'd love to see more of Stone Creek when you get the chance. If the entrance is any indication, it must be very nice. Take a deep breath and just know it'll be over soon. We send our best to you both for the coming year. Take care!

Bon retour sur la blogosphère et bonne année à tous

Small City Scenes said...

What a nice welcome every time you return home. And we welcome you back to the blogging community too.
Packing and unpacking---what a chore. Rest a lot. Enjoy the new digs. MB

Jacob said...

@ Louis - The Mad Cow needs lots of help, but I thought he could read OK. Actually, come to think of it, and thanks for reminding me, there is a great bar at the Stone Creek Grille next to the golf shop...hmmm...it's very cold today so that might be a place to hang out...

Nah, I'll have to hang pictures or some damn thing!

Heh. Heh.

Moo to you! And Happy New Year, too!

lizziviggi said...

What a beautiful gateway to your neighborhood! Congratulations on "completing" your move... and I hope you're more successful at unpacking than we were... we still have boxes in the garage from our move 4(!) years ago.

Thank you for your kind words-- I think often of a line from "Benjamin Button"-- "If we never lost anyone, how would we know how important they are to us?" And while I think I've always known how important Mom was, it's true she's in my thoughts every day when she might not have been before. I'm sorry for the loss of your mother and mother-in-law... but aren't we lucky to have such wonderful people in our lives, for however short a period of time?

All right, out with the tragedy, in with the celebration-- Happy New Year! I hope your new home is blessed with many wonderful new memories!

Happy New Year/bonne année Jacob and Lois Anne, you were missed real bad! Wow, this is a grand entrance, I can't wait to see more!!!!! Now I'm REALLY going to come to Florida!
Glad to have you backeven if it's sporadic!
I'm still in Quimper and using a friend's computer right now, so until I get home I probably won't be able to commment much... Sorry :-(
