Happy New Year





I love new beginnings.  I seem to need a lot of them.

I don't particularly like New Year's Eve . . . such conspicuous counting off of fleeting moments.  I always feel a bit frenzied, panicked, reluctant, unprepared, and regretful.

But I love New Year's Day.  A new beginning.  Opportunities to begin again.  To improve.  To enjoy.  I am always covered in new leaves begging to be turned over.




2009 was not such a good year for me or my family, but it did prove a good seed-bed for new blossoms and flourishes for the new year.

I look forward to a beautiful year and wish one for you as well.






Happy New Year!

Isn't it wonderful to have an outlet to say "My year has had it's ups and downs." Folks read, respond with support and understanding, then come back for more. We are all human, hence we'll have our ups and downs. In 2010, lets boost each other along so we don't focus and obsess on the downs!

Happy New Year!

Beautiful sunrise picture! Happy 2010 and Happy Pink Saturday! We've had our share of ups and downs this year too. I was sort of melancholy today as we kick off the new year, but here's to a New Start! Hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Hi ! HAPPY NEW YEAR ! I love the pic with the baby.

I had a very mixed year of highs & lows & went to bed on New Year's Eve at midnight leaving my guests partying !!! unheard of before but I was so very tired.

It took A LOT to put up a photo of me on the Blog but I've had lovely comments - by the way, I LOVE your name !
