reflections on 2010

It is the last day of 2010 and seems like a natural time to reflect on all the hard work, challenges and blessings of the past year. So many wonderful things have happened in the past year, a friend urged me to start my own business and I am loving the sense of accomplishment that I have from working again. Our house is so close to being finished. We have all met wonderful new friends, and enjoyed amazing times with family and friends, old and new. My children are happy and healthy and love their schools, and they are another year older which is an adventure in itself! Life has been busy, and unfortunately I have not always stopped to appreciate all the wonderful things that have happened, but I am going to try and be better at that!

What will 2011 bring? We are planning on putting the house on the market in the next few weeks and while we are hoping for a speedy sale we are prepared for it not to sell. We will then just enjoy our finished house for a little longer. We are hoping to move closer to our children's schools and all ours and their friends. I am hoping that the new house will have a nice big space for me to carve out an office/studio, so that I can continue to build my business. Part of me also hopes that the house itself will be a nice big project that we can work to make our own and can grow into over the next 10-15 years. I hope that I can continue to spend amazing a special time with my children, who are getting big way too fast, and enjoy all the wonderful time we spend together as a family. I also resolve to be better about sharing all the wonderful projects I get to works on, the beautiful things I see in the world, and the interesting things that inspire me.

I hope 2011 brings interesting and wonderful people into all your lives, beautiful things for you to see, and lovely spaces for you to enjoy.
