I sat this morning and made up my little photo collage of the past year. I like to do this at the end of the year, sort of like putting a nice little bow on the year that was, and tuck it away for a while to let those memories simmer for a bit.
In my mind, I'm welcoming the New Year with open arms . . . ready for it to take me in whichever direction it chooses.
But I have to admit, as I look back at the photos of 2011 . . . I had one incredible year. Really. Absolutely incredible.
Colorful, wasn't it? I like that. Color. It surrounded us this year. What a blessing.
From banana suits, to meeting my dear blog friend Kiki, it was a year of smiles. From quiet moments in my car, to vacations to New Orleans and Disney World, it was a year of adventures. From celebrating a Royal Wedding, to watching the birth of three baby birds, it was a year of watching as life unfolds around us. From duck tape purses, to starting my own art business, it was a year of creating.
My Life. My Loves. My Art.
That is what it is all about, for me.
Through it all, it was a year of love.
And it was an honor to share it all with you.
Wishing you much Peace, Love and Courage in the New Year, my friend.
