around the corner...

tree + snow
I'm really looking forward to the New Year this time around. I've been thinking about all the things in store for me and my family and all the possibilities. Its exciting! I'm ready for a fresh start, and the opportunity to say, by this time next year I want my life to have moved in ____ direction.

I don't usually do New Year's resolutions, but this year, there are some real things this year that I have in mind. They are too personal to blurt out to anyone other than my husband, let alone on a public place like a blog. Besides, I've always felt like it jinxes things a little to share my intentions about personal things like art projects or self improvement. But the spirit of my resolutions is simply to practice being a better person to those around me.

I also have some pretty big dreams wrapped up in the New Year. Namely, we want to buy our first house in 2009. We've been working hard on reaching this goal for a couple of years now, and we want it so badly we can almost taste it. Just a few more hurdles to go... Here's hoping there aren't any new hurdles around the bend...wish us luck!

Lastly, I have some exciting news to share with you on the first of the year! I can't wait to let you all in on my little secret!

Have a wonderful and safe New Year's Eve!
