Last year as we were ringing in the New Year, I had a moment to actually have a nice reflection on the passing of time.
This year I am completely without any sort of reflection, and I have given no thought to the year ahead.
Jack was up until 2 am last night. As in had not yet had a wink of sleep until 2 am. It was a really hairy night around here, and I am more like a zombie than I have been since he was a tiny infant. It was just a bad, bad night in so many ways.
So, instead of dwelling on that (or the toothpicks that are holding my eyes open), I thought I would revisit some of my favorite photos of this past year. Moments where everything is bright and shiny and lovely and everything was going just the way it should.
Because really, way more often than not, everything around here *is* bright and shiny and pretty much going the way it should.
And I always have all of you to share it with. This little bit from last year could not be more true this year:
"I want to take a moment to thank each and everyone of you who stops in here daily, or weekly, or even occassionally to see what we are up to. You inspire me with your own blogs, you amaze me with your kindness, you encourage and support me with your comments and emails. What a terrific group of women (and a man or two) you all are!"
I hope that 2008 is full of bright and shiny and lovely for each and every one of you.
