Reflections on 2012

In 2012 ...

I lost 10lbs (yeah!). Then injured myself, fell off the wagon and gained it back (boo!). I stopped drinking pop for 6 months. Challenged myself to eat better and rethink how to fuel this machine. I worked a lot and played some too. I had the opportunity to travel to the Pacific NW, Colorado Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, Nebraska and bike 80 miles on the Katy Trail in Missouri. I watched my daughter melt my heart, test my patience, and leave me speechless, laughing or in awe. I welcomed some fabulous little people in to the world. Made some memorable moments with my family and friends. Celebrated milestones. I took pictures, pictures, and more pictures...and I did a horrible job updating this blog.

So in 2013 ... I plan to do many more things, travel more places, celebrate more milestones, take hundreds of more photos, spend time with family and friends, live, laugh, love and just do better. Do and be better...all around.

For myself.

For my family.

For my friends.

And for this blog!

So here's to another New Year, with endless opportunities and many more doors that we can choose to open or close...just be grateful for all of them.

Connor's 1st Birthday

We had the pleasure of attending an amazing first birthday a few weekends ago that was circus themed...here are some of the pics I took!

Wall of E...

I'm having fun doing a few new things around the house. I love collecting letters and such and happened to run across a few of these this past weekend in the West Bottoms. So...I decided to create a wall of E's!

Pantry Redo

Here are some pics from last weekend when I decided to finally finish off our pantry and make it work! I found a couple of cabinets down at the West Bottoms antique weekend that helped get everything organized!

In love with Dr. Suess...







A special little guy we know just celebrated his 1st Birthday...CIRCUS STYLE! And this is the gift we gave him. I am in LOVE with Dr. Seuss these days! "If I ran the Circus" has to be one of my current favorites to read to Sydney...so we thought that it was extremely appropriate to share! More Birthday Party pics to come...it was quite the Extravaganza!

She's back...

OMG ... she's alive and kicking!

I am . . . officially Alive and Kicking that is. Its been yet another busy and interesting hiatus. I am not going to post some drawn out excuse for not posting. Who really cares anyway! I have been busy living my life and now I am back to find some time to share some things along the way. Hopefully the upcoming posts will reflect a little bit of what I have been up to...and the creativity that always flourishes within me. 

Life isn't always perfect, but it is what you make of it and I highly recommend living with NO REGRETS! Whatever life we have here will never be enough! Here is to sharing with you, how I see the world through my own lens. I hope it will inspire you to go out and do something that makes you happy!
