January 2016. I still can't believe its here. I can't believe that it has been nearly 6 months since I posted to this monthly circle. (Im so glad I was invited back!) As it turns out, my life got a little crazy about halfway through last year, the world stopped playing by my rules and started doing its own thing. I was no longer in charge. So, Im welcoming this new year, with a fresh start, a brand new blog on my brand new website and a list full of personal "improvements" I'm ready to tackle.
Improvement #1- organization. Im not good at it. Never have been. But this is the year. This is the year I will write things down, and then remember where the list is. This is the year we will be ready on time because we know where shoes are the night before, and this is the year I will be finished with my Christmas shopping before 5:00pm on Christmas Eve. This is the year.
I would love to give you a nice flowing scroll of cohesive images that tell this wonderfully perfect story, but really, that just isn't the case. Our life has been a little disoriented, a little out of balance, so Instead, you are going to get a haphazard version of our story, but still oh so wonderful! Im so glad to have been able to pick up my camera to catch just a few moments in our last month- from Christmas tree shopping in the beautiful tree farms of Lowe's and Home Depot (yes, we visited both) , finding our way in a new home, to learning that our days with our puppy of 13 years are sadly numbered. This is my life. I wouldn't change it.
Here's hoping that 2016 brings a little more calm, a little more time to breathe, good health, and happy homecomings. :)
