new beginnings

gotta love that. happy 2008 to all. we are getting a late start today after partying until 2am. ok, we are dorks because we were playing wii, not really partying. but we were still up until 2am so that counts for something.

want to catch up with so much but i thought i would start the new year off with my word for 2008. last year my word was "create." not just in the artistic sense but in creating the life that i want for me and for my family. it was fun to have a word as my anchor. and i definitely kept it in my mind all year long

this year i knew what i wanted to focus on and i found the perfect word: RESOLVE. the definition i am going with is; (n) a firm decision to do something. there are so many aspects of my life that are in need of some resolve. i will tackle them one at a time. but this is the big picture. i am the type of person that thinks too much before making decisions. whether it's a life choice, a paint color, or what kind of creamer to buy. i think and debate and question and sometimes never end up making a decision. so that is why i resolve to have resolve this year(?). i will make decisions that will have a positive impact on my life. i am ready for this. and i am excited to move forward with confidence.

ok, that's done. anyone else thinking of a word? i was inspired by ali edwards who put out the challenge last year and i loved it. post a reply if you have a word for 2008.

and finally i have a lot of pictures to share from the past week. but here is one of my favorites from yesterday. it's hard to believe we were here in the morning and back at home to celebrate new year's with my family. thank you melissa for the picture.

oh yeah and today is my biggest little boy's birthday. wow, 9! i'll post more about his happy day tomorrow. and write something touching about what a wonderful boy he is. that's my decision for now.

New beginnings is such a great way to start a new year! My word is Health! I talked to Beth last night and hers is Focus! Your new word for the year is going to help get all of us onthe right track!
