Happy New year to everyone!
wow! It is so hard for me to believe that it is 2008 already! I am sure everyone is feeling the same way! Hope everyone had a great Christmas and An awesome New Year....
As a new year starts it has caused me to reflect on the past year.... to wonder if I accomplished all that I wanted to.... For myself I feel like this past year was so much better than a lot of years prior for many reasons!

My new word this year is "live".

I know this seems like a very basic word but I mean LIVE like there is no tommorow.... Live like you have to accomplish so much in a very little bit of time.... Live with all the very best intentions.... and so on.... you get what I mean. So often I feel like a day goes by and what have I done? I want to live for ME and MY family...
I love the quote that Ali has on her blog today:

"This is the beginning of a new day. You have been given this day to use as you will. You can waste it or use it for good. What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it. When tomorrow comes, this day will be gone forever; in its place is something that you have left behind...let it be something good". author unknown

So with all that in mind.....
make sure you all go over to ONE LITTLE WORD and check out what is going on..... it is word up #17 and there will be multiple winners this go around..... it is Karlas word this week and with a new year starting it is a great word. Here is what I came up with:

I will have more to post about in the next couple of days, some Christmas pics and some New years ones too but for today this is it....
Have a great day everyone!
