Times They Are a-Changin'

As we come to the end of yet another year (where did it go?!), I see many blog posts and articles reviewing 2012.  You can find the best of, worst of, most popular search, favorite outfits of the year, best DIY projects, or a round up of pretty much anything else you want to review.  Looking back on the year in my own life, I see how quickly things are changing.  My eleven year old started her last year of elementary school, decided not to trick or treat for the first time, and declared she no longer believed in Santa.  (She did not, however, refuse any present labeled from Santa I noticed.  Hmm.)  My six year old is not a "baby kindergartener" anymore and my actual baby turned four.  Four!! Time is flying by faster every year.

Sometimes looking back can be a little depressing if I focus on all the things I didn't do.  Looking ahead is filled with hope and purpose.  We believe next year can be better or our lives can be better.  We believe we can be better.  I'm choosing to embrace the new year and focus on things that are truly important to me.  I'm aiming to tackle one major area per month.  Otherwise, I will quickly be overwhelmed with the 82 things I need to improve on.  Okay, not 82.  Maybe 57.  One of the first things I am focusing on will be this blog.  Bear with me as I revamp the look and start posting more frequently.  Hope you find some encouragement through the changes I make or entertainment in my huge failures.  Best wishes to you in the New Year!


  1. Looking forward to more of your writing in the coming year. I'm thinking we should team up and write a screenplay together. Don't have a plot in mind yet, but I'm thinking something involving Hugh Jackman, George Clooney, Bradley Cooper, Colin Firth and Ryan Gosling.
