Hello 2012, It's Me

If you're reading this, you've also made it through the holidays.  (Insert the deep breath here).   I feel like this time of year I'm teetering on the edge, ready to fly.  Sometimes it feels like I'm coming out of a dream into the light.  The new year always holds so many possibilities for me.  It's as if I can start fresh about the way I think of myself and the world.  Nothing can stop me from doing the things I want to do.  No self doubt.  No boundaries.

The kids wanted to roast marshmallows in the backyard last night.  As we stood around the warmth, we talked about what we wanted for 2012.  Jonathan wants to go on a road trip to see Bryce Canyon.  I want to get the kiln we've had in our garage working.

Other than the things we want to do, I think about what I want for myself personally.  I hope this year I can love everything about myself more fully.  The good and bad. I want to live simpler, purging all the old things that don't serve me well.  I would like to continue to be with people that are uplifting and positive and open to becoming better versions of themselves.

I want to bake more.  The banana bread aroma coming from the oven right now is heavenly.  

Wishing you all a wonderful year in 2012.  May we all become a bit wiser in the coming year and enjoy every moment as much as humanly possible!
