Happy New Year!

Does 2009 feel like it was all uphill? Are you at the top enjoying the view? Are you looking into 2010 with anticipation of a fresh start? I'm ready to pack away all the decor and lights but each time I start, the kids say, "Aw mama, not yet!" And I admit it is a bit comforting to sit with the candles lit and the lights twinkling. But if not now, then when? Believe in yourself. Believe in others. Believe that passion and purpose will propel you to accomplish more than you ever dreamed.
So as we kiss an old year good bye and a new year hello, hold onto this moment...for truly this is all we have.

Happy New Year!

We keep the tree up until next weekend. We love to just listen to music with the tree lights and candles in the evening. I did take down a lot of my "snowpeople" and they are sitting on the table until I get the boxes out again.
Maybe I will do that tomorrow after work, or not, lol.
Happy New Year!
