Welcome 2010!

I have always loved New Years Day! I make a big pot of chili every year, and  take the day as it comes. Very different from my normal daily routine. My husband and I spent a quiet evening at home to see the New Year in, so I just slept in a bit more then usual, and have spent most of the morning, visiting all the wonderful blogs.

Do you remember the excitement of the first day of school? Well maybe you weren't excited but I always was. Fresh new paper, sharpened pencils, and a fresh new start to a new school year. To this day a new notebook, journal, or now a blog page is still exciting to me. I can fill it with thoughts, ideas, plans, dreams, anything I wish.

I am like most of you.....I have dreams, wishes, goals, and good intentions, for 2010. Yep would love to lose some weight, excersize more, and all of the normal resolutions we all have, but my real desire for this year is to be more present in the moment of everyday living. With family, friends, a business to run, a home to care for, and the multitude of other things that enter our daily lives, I find myself scattered and missing some of the most wonderful moments with busyness.

So my wish for this year, is to connect more with my loved ones, prioritize what is really important, and just enjoy the journey of life. I would love to have you all join me, in sharing 2010 together. Looking forward to this year with all the enthusiasm of that first day of school, with that fresh new notebook, and today it started with sharing with all of you.

God's Blessings to Each and Everyone of my dear blogging friends! May this New Year, be filled with Joy, Blessings, and Love!

Happy New Year Everyone!!

I hope that everyone had a great Christmas season! I have so enjoyed reading all the wonderful blogs on what people do to celebrate, and the adorable photos too! I know I have some wonderful recipes to add to my collection from all of you also, and can't wait to try them all.
I have taken a break from painting for the past couple weeks, so I really have no photos to share, but I have so many things I want to do. I have been organizing, cleaning, and getting everything ready for the new season, and I am getting excited to get started again.
I have no hard and fast New Year resolutions, but I do want to be more focused on my business, and not let so many distractions interfere.....wish me luck.
So until next time......I wish everyone a very happy, safe and prosperous New Year, and as always......
Blessings to All
