Markers and such

Out of all the things that Charlotte could play with, she just wants my markers. She likes to put then in the box and take them out of the box and scatter them about the house. She is too cute. The last two weeks have been a whirlwind of busy. We got a new house for Christmas! It took all our energy and time over the last two weeks, but we are moved in, settled and happy. Dustin did so much work, fixing toilets, replacing fans, repairing electrical outlets. What a good guy. Now he is back to work today, probably wondering where his vacation went. Now, if only the sun could find it's way back to Arizona, then life would really be great.

The Beginning of Something Great

It's a new year. Bring on 2011! At the close of each year I love to reflect back on the previous year and remember all the good things that happened and how much I have been blessed. I also like to think about things that could have gone better and where I might improve. I think that most of the world does this. This year I just want to focus more on the good. Good friends, good family, good food, good life. I'm casting out the bad. Sometimes I get caught up in trying to please everyone. No more. I'm casting out the bad. I'm casting aside the people that don't truly have my best interest at heart. I'm going to focus on nourturing relationships that are priceless to me. My best friend and hubby, my little angel, my family and my dear sweet friends. I'm going to make sure that I never make a decision based on pride. I truly believe that if we all stopped worrying about what every one thinks of us and start worrying about how we treat each other, the world could heal itself. So, for 2011 I wish us all peace in our homes, love in our families and charity in our hearts. If I can accomplish any of these this year, I know I will have done something great.
