Happy New Year

Well it has been a great holiday.
I have enjoyed all of it.
Watching my children enjoy family.
Watching my SIL Brooke get married to someone who loves her completely.
Enjoying every moment of Regan's free time.
But it is gooood to be home.
There is something to be said about being in your own space.
Your own bed.

But we are back down this weekend for Ukrainian Christmas.
Totally excited about doing that with my family this year.

Thought a lot about something Ali Edwards wrote.

"Can you identify a single word that sums up what you want for yourself in 2007?

It can be something tangible or intangible. It could be a thought or a feeling or an emotion. It can be singular or plural. The key is to find something that has personal meaning for you. This is not your mother's word or your spouse's word or your child's word - this is YOUR word.

One little word can have big meaning in your life if you allow yourself to be open to the possibilities. And here's one thing that is totally interesting: sometimes a word will pop into your brain and it will not make any sense to you right now. Give it some time. Let it percolate a bit. I have often found that our hearts speak to us in very unique ways. Maybe this is a word you need to hear but just aren't ready for it yet. Again, be open to the possibilities."

I'm going to be thinking about my word this week, do you have one?

Yup, I do... It is BELIEVE. Not just faith/religion wise. But in myself; my children; my husband; my goals; my dreams; my desires... Believe whole heartedly. Great and wonderous things will come to pass!!

Glad to hear you had a great Christmas!! Nothing can replace family.

I'm picking "GROW" as my word! Every day and everything I see and read and look at, I grow, as a person, as a photographer. It's in everything!

I just want to grow! Thanks for sharing that inspiration!!
