See Ya 2022, Howdy 2023!

Happy New Year Friends and Family!

I won’t bore you with a lot of words. Here is the Peppers’ 16th Annual Year-in-Review Photo Montage 2022 recap. And if that doesn’t get your attention, may I interest you in our 8-minute Home Reno?

**A shout-out to my talented Mr. Pepper for building those awesome bookcases in our livingroom!**

An Italian Wish For You

My friend, Marzia, taught me this message:

Ti auguro che tutto ciò che desideri si realizzi!
I wish that all your dreams come true! ?

    Hello Kenda,
    Might you be willing to share your mother’s email address with me, or give her mine and ask her to contact me? My sisters and I are trying to collect some comments about my dad, Ralph Heilig, for his upcoming 90th birthday.
    Thank you!
    I enjoy your blog. ?

    Thanks for sharing. All the music choices are so fun throughout both videos! My absolute favorite is the harmonica playing. Jackson is a natural!!!! We may be heading to the east coast spring/summer in the sprinter and would love to say hi ? Happy 2023 -yippee!

    1. Hi Jill! It’s so great to hear from you! I love that vid of Jackson. Given his two talented parents, it’s no surprise he has jam-ability…but at 2 years of age!? I can hardly wait until his talents manifest. We look forward to your visit this spring/summer! ?

  3. I love both of these videos! Josh says “Good job. You knocked it out of the park! Both the video and the house”. It is so nice to see your year in review and I am in shock by how much you all got done with the house in such little time. It looks absolutely amazing!!!! I love the colors-all the blues, and blue green and earth tones. You all could go into business doing design. I love seeing Stella and Jackson too. Love you guys!

    1. That’s a big compliment coming from Josh. Thank him for us. And of course, thank YOU friend. ? I think I might have gone a little overboard with the blues. We had many intense moments last year with the house stuff. Oy. Love YOU!!

    Kenda! Happy New Year! I woke up thinking of you this very morning – because – I celebrated my four year anniversary of making through another New Years day ( New Years Day 2019 was when I had my ankle injury!). While I was giving thanks to another year and making it through another NY day, I thought of you and wondered where you were (plus we just got back from our Italy trip Christmas Day – loved loved loved – which made me think of you too!) – I came downstairs and my first email was this message – what that means, I don’t know but it was sure nice! Loved watching your video – with the “smaht” sweatshirt, can I assume you are up in New England? Maybe? And you bought a house! I love it! My heart felt warm seeing all the snow and leaves and the sharing of your year – )NE is where my heart is after going up in NH.) Great video with all the pictures – you are adorable! Happy New Year and keep sharing the love! Love, Jane

    1. It’s always a joy to hear from you, Jane. Look how far you’ve come in the past 4 years! Would love to hear more about Italy. Yes, we’re in NE. It’s beautiful and still missing Italia. I think we must have some kind of psychic connection. 🙂 Wishing you much happiness this year ahead and always. ?

    Love Love Love it all!!!!! You are SOOOO creative! Wishing you, Scott and Stella (and all the fam) a wonderful 2023 in your beautiful home…with maybe a little less snow than in 2022… So grateful to have you in my life. Un grande abbraccio…
