Farewell to 2011

It's time to say farewell to 2011.

This has been a unforgettable year for me.
My word for 2011 is Creativity.

Did I ever create big things in my life:
Becoming Pregnant, Giving Birth to Jacob
and Getting Married.

As well as discreating things that no longer
serve me: getting rid of debt, leaving my
job, getting rid of things to make room for

Also, the sad things that can accompany any
year: Death. I lost a cousin this year and
on Thursday, my beloved brother died unexpectedly.

In any year there can be stunning beauty and
deep felt grief. We have to take the good and the bad.

I look forward to 2012. I hope you all do.
Your life can look like your dreams. It takes
patience, courage and fortitude.

Dream Big, my friends! Wishing you all
a bright and shiny new Year. See you
right back here in 2012.
