This last week I've been thinking and thinking- trying to come up with some good resolutions for this bright new year And as always, I had something of a hard time narrowing it down; BUT I did come up with a few....
- Keep the Quit- many of you know that I quit smoking for the umpteenth time last August; my goal here is to stick with it!
- Be Grateful- remember the gratitude journal I made a while back? I need to get back to daily entries.
- Stay Positive- this is not always an easy thing for me, but I'm gonna work on it!
- Be a Better Juggler- parenting, wifing, arting, teaching, blogging- these are just a few of the things that I love in my life and I need to do find a better way to balance them all...get those balls back in the air if you will!
blessings that 2011 has brought my way;
Being able to combine teaching with being an artist- I love the freedom of my little classes- and having time to paint is such a wonderful feeling!
Our new little kitten- Mojo has been such a wonderful, funny addition to our family.....
helping start the Sisterhood of Traveling Sketchbooks- I have loved this physical connection with my bloggy, artist friends!
And then of course, there are the blessings that have only gotten better over the years.....
my sweet (mostly) husband Bill- I can't believe we're about to have our 20th anniversary in a few weeks!
my "babies" on Christmas morning, sleepy, but beautiful!
I'll end my rambling of resolutions and gratitude here.....I hope you all had a blessed 2011 and an even better beginning to 2012!
Love and Hugs,
