A Shout Out and H-E-L-L-O 2013!
Thanks 2012, I learned a lot from you and those that I met along the way.
I learned a lot, and I have a lot more to learn.
I learned more about what really matters.
I learned that I have a talents and a whole lotta flaws, and true they don't always balance each other, but a lot of people love me anyway.
I've learned even more that I have an amazing family - they've taught me much, and I have wonderful friends. I treasure them, and learned more how lucky I am to have them.
When you mix a few from each group, I've learned you cannot help but have a good time and a little silly goes a long way.
Like a party on 4 hours notice -- plans do change around here often enough -- and 1 minute paper hats with newspaper, napkins and chopstick wrappers...we were having sushi after all!
You see, it doesn't take much to make it merry when you have parents like
And friends like Kathy...
...and fun kids in the house too...
...Charlotte can be shy, believe it or not...but the sillies get the better of her...
...and Paetra, well she is just one great kiddo...
...the hosts got the sillies themselves...
...and the night got late, the ball dropped and we welcomed the new year....
Hope you've had a beautiful and bubbly start to your new year too...
I hope we all learn better how to make time to celebrate the everyday fun around us with a few friends and family.
I don't think we need to wait for a special occasion...Do you?
