|happy, happy new year!!!||December 31, 2008|
Ahhh…a fresh start–or at least that is how it seems to me this year! I’ve never been one of those people to really see it that way, but 2008 has been one doozy of a year for my family and I! I don’t always share all of my personal business on this blog–because it is typically used to show my latest work and talk about all of my wonderful sessions with my clients. However, I am entitled occasionally–right?
This has been a tough year, a year of cancer, loss of a business (not mine), deaths, illness, a very, very bad car accident, a lot of bad news about people we care about and love, a lot of unknowns, A LOT of stress, and a lot of loss, and frustration. It has been a year where we would just finish dealing with one problem and then go on to deal with the next –with little or no break in between. So in a lot of ways I am really happy to say good bye to this year and start a new one! I am not stupid, I know life will always have it’s challenges and valleys, but I really hope I don’t have to deal with another year like this again!
HOWEVER, with all that being said, I do want to recognize the positives that have come out of this year–I have grown so much in faith, love and appreciation. I have had a wonderful second year of homeschooling and bonding with my children. I have celebrated 14 years of marriage with my wonderful husband. I have seen the value and frailty of human life. And, I have met SO many wonderful clients and have had a very successful year with my business!
So . . . with all that being said–out with the old and in with the new! I hope everyone has a wonderful, fabulous, fun, exciting new year full of love, peace, happiness and much meaning! Happy 2009!
We will be at the beach until Jan 17th and will begin booking sessions as of now for Feb. 2009 and beyond. I am really looking forward to the new year and am taking this time to rejuice and replenish my creativity–so I can be my best for the coming year ahead. Until then . . . I plan on playing with my kids, reading a few good books, taking lots of long walks on the beach with my family, exercising, exercising, exercising, watching some good tv, playing games, laughing a lot, taking naps. . . whew–I better stop blogging and get on it–I have a lot to accomplish before I get back to work! Best wishes to all of you in the new year! I look forward to seeing you in 2009!
