    Happy New Year, Erik, Amish America friends!

    Erik! Thank you so much for continuing to do a fine job on Amish America, I love checking in and reading what’s up, you always find interesting things to write about!
    My year was in fact interesting, it did have it’s up and downs, but the downs are not un-correctable.

    If I where to do a resolution this year of any merit, I think it would be Amish inspired, I think I am going to work on the practice of “Letting be” or however it is put, its a good practice to keep and an idea I found on Amish America.
    Have a good year everyone and in particular Erik!
    ~ “SHOM” 🙂

      Thank you Shom! I think letting be can be hard to do, but sometimes the only thing you can do.

      Thanks for continuing to read and share with us and I hope you have a great 2016.

    Thanks Erik

    Thanks for all your efforts to make AA my favorite site on the whole WWW thingy!

    I had a very busy and somewhat, well actually REAL stressful year in 2015 and got behind for several, several months on my reading of the various threads on this site. I am slowly working through them now and as I do, one thought kept coming to mind; you know, this guy does a LOT of work to keep this site going. Thanks for doing what you do.

    BTW: in August of 2014 we took a trip to Missouri and visited the Seymour Amish community. I took several pictures in the area, though I am far from proficient with a camera. I intended to email them to you, but before I could I left that camera at a sporting event. It still held all of the pictures I had taken. Just this week I was searching for something in my laptop, and Lo & Behold; I had actually downloaded them to my laptop before I lost my camera. I will send them to you soon and you can use or not use them as you see fit.

    Happy New Year to the Amish America family.

      Oldkat, belatedly, thank *you* for making time to circle back and come see us again. Hope you’ve enjoyed some of the posts and discussions you missed. It’s pretty cool to hear your someone’s favorite site…in any case I enjoy the work 🙂 And you’ve certainly contributed here yourself over the years.

      Feel free to email me the photos and anything else, I am at ewesner(at)gmail(dot)com. Will be glad to see and maybe share them. Sorry you lost the camera but at least maybe it wasn’t a total loss.

      Happy 2016!

    Happy New Year and Thank You!

    Thanks so much for Amish America Favourite Posts of 2015! I try and check out this site each week, but there are several topics I think I missed. Thanks also for all your hard work, Eric, and for posting all the interesting and inspirational posts throughout the year.

    Well, it’s a new year once more and I always become reflective after the busy weeks in December and Amish America tends to calm everything down and helps me focus on what is important in life.

    I wish you all a happy, healthy and above all peaceful new year and throughout 2016.

      Thanks, Jack! I appreciate you coming back. The year-end post always is a fun one to put together. There were around 200 posts this year so you tend to forget some of them. I had a lot of help this year as in previous years, so my thanks go to those contributors who shared with us as well.

      I’m glad that coming here helps you focus on important things…that’s nice to hear. Happy new year!
