Are you singing the song? That was my plan…

One of the beautiful things about the blog land is we get to set our own vacation! I love that.

So, I am setting mine. It starts right after I am done here… Woo hoo!

Actually, since I love my “job” so much, I don’t actually look forward to leaving here.

But, we travel to my husband’s family right after Christmas and where they live, I have very limited internet access. Can you believe it?

So, I am going to work on figuring out Photoshop. I have had it for a while, but been intimidated by it. So, hopefully I will come back with some amazing skills!!! Ha Ha!

But I couldn’t leave without thanking each and every one of you.

I must admit, I was totally hoping Santa was going to bring me 200 followers down the chimney. Instead, I lost one yesterday. I didn’t even know that could happen. I know, we are not suppose to get so caught up in the numbers, especially at this time of year.

So, that is why I think it didn’t happen. Every single step of this process has been a challenge for me to figure out. And that is a blessing.

Although I started my business is 2004, there are several aspects of it that my husband and I have “dreamed” about for years. I have been talk, talk, talking for so long, I am even sick of myself.

So, that is the reason I started this blog, to push myself forward towards my goals. That is the journey I have been on. I am truly trying to find my sense of home and satisfaction.

So, 2011, has to be the year. And by putting things in writing and focusing on projects for posting, I am finally starting to put my money where my mouth is.

And I am going to start with something I haven’t really done yet, a picture, of my family, that includes ME. I must admit, I am not comfortable with this, for a laundry list of reasons. Usually, I am behind the camera, but a nice lady offered to take our picture in the city the other day, so here you go…

I know, a whole lot of hoopla for nothing. But, just trying to push myself to do what makes me uncomfortable, that I hear, is how we grow!

I might sneak in before the new year, but just in case,

I wish you all the very Merriest of Christmas, or whatever you celebrate (or have already celebrated).

I wish for you lots of yummy treats without indigestion or any “holiday weight” gained (I am wishing that for myself too).

I wish you time of letting your house get messy and lived in while your family enjoys all that the holidays have to offer.

I wish you lots of help to clean it up so you don’t undo all the relaxation you succeeded in gaining.

I wish you a wild and crazy new year, or a quiet and reflective new year, which ever you prefer.

I wish you blessings, happiness and health for each of you and your families.

I offer you sincere thanks and appreciation for supporting me on this journey. For all of your incredibly kind comments that are helping me find confidence in my journey.

I look forward to what all of our journeys lead us to in 2011 and I look forward to us sharing the ride with each other.

And just for one more last time…

Have a Fa La La La La La La La La La La La La La La La FABULOUS HOLIDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


God Bless and Have Fun!
