I'm Back!

I can't believe that another holiday season has swept past us and that a new year has already arrived! Happy 2011!

Our family enjoyed a wonderful holiday, probably the best yet. We are truly blessed people. We have the greatest family and friends in the whole wide world and it was a joy to spend time with them during the past few weeks.

At a New Year's Eve party that our family attended, we played a little game called "What If". Many questions were asked, all beginning with "What if...". The group would throw out answers and some discussion was had. One question really got me thinking. "What if you could go back to any age during your lifetime? What age would you choose?" I didn't answer that night, but I'm ready to answer the question now. I would choose 31. The very age that I am now. I am happy. I have an absolutely amazing family. I am in love, now more than ever, with my husband. We have 3 happy, healthy little boys. We have a nice home. We drive nice cars. We have great friends. We are financially stable. We have fun. We live a fabulous life. I choose the present. I don't look back and desire to be anywhere else. I love where I am now. 2010 treated our family perfectly. If 2011 chooses to treat us the same, I will be a very happy girl.

This year I hope to:

Blog more
Work less
Get a piano and start Jack in lessons
Read more (both by myself and with my children)
Learn more about photography
Get at least 1 step closer to finishing our basement

Those are my goals. Happy New Year!
