January 1st, 2010

I love the way that looks....
January 1, 2010.
Doesn't it look so nice, so fresh and clean and new?

Do you want to know one of the first things I thought about in the new year?
Sure you do. "I'm going to turn 40 in this decade!" That's what I thought. Weird, I know.

And then I said to my honey, "did Paisley have a good poop this morning?"

Yes, that's the season we're in right now. And that conversation is actually somewhat captivating and important to us. Who would have thought?

I am so deeply grateful to have experienced another year of LIFE on this earth.

2009 was beautiful.

I am looking forward to 2010 and all that it may hold. I like the way that sounds, twenty-ten.

Better go now, time to clean up the tornado of toys that was our day, get the kids ready for our nightly hot tub dip and then enjoy the close of this, the 1st day of a new year.


P.s. here's a little Christmas house tour! Enjoy!

"We will open the book. Its pages are blank.
We are going to put words on them ourselves.
The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day."

Happy New Year Dear Friend! I look forward, with anticipation, at what the Lord has in store for the two of us! Hopefully, more face to face conversations and shopping opportunities.

From my heart to yours...

What a beautiful, warm, welcoming home! How I wish it would have worked for me to come over to your house! As lovely as it was in pictures, I know in person everything it that much MORE darling! What a shame to take all that beautiful decor down! And oh, the snow pictures from a few posts down (I have some online catching up to do! Still days on behind!) are so so beautiful! That is one thing I miss so sooo much about the north - those snowed-in days of winter! But I was able to be in on it for a few days, and privileged I felt!! :)

A lovely New Year's to you, beautiful Janelle!
