Happy and Merry

Ahhh, the start of a new decade. I always welcome the feelings of hope and renewal that come with the beginning a new year, and in our house we were especially happy to bid adieu to 2009. For the first time in recent memory we didn't make any plans for New Years Eve and instead decided to spend the evening at home, quietly welcoming a fresh start and new beginnings. There were warm blankets and movies, popcorn and champagne. Each of us made a list of things we would like to let go of and leave in the previous year, and then we let those lists go up in smoke. The perfect punctuation to a very difficult year.

I don't normally make resolutions (do you?) but among a few other things, this year I want to try to take more pictures. My lofty ambitious side would like to try for a picture a day, but at the least I want to to a better job of documenting our journey through the next 365 days. Maybe more of a goal than a resolution. So, welcome 2010 and all the hope you bring along with you. I wish each of you the best for the coming year...health and happiness and nothing but good things.
