Time

Wow! My kids are going up so fast. (The lament of every mom??) Last night Alex and Rachel made dinner for the first time. Alex made breaded chicken strips, and Rachel mad the salads and yogurt/berry appetizers. A surprise for their daddy's birthversary week. Our big girl Alex, with her large striking brown eyes, is now in fourth grade; beautiful, strong and bright. Freckle-faced Rachel is in third; smart as a whip, artistic and creative, and cute.

OK - Have I forgotten how to write a reasonable blog post??

Tuning In

**

To many times I seem to find myself putting my kids off, asking them to wait while I finish this phone call, conversation, email or text.

2012: Tune in.

Colorado Rocky Mountain Sky

I just love the Colorado sky - so much character and color! Earlier this week the girls and I saw what looked like a hurricane in the sky.


It was amazing!! So glad I had my camera handy ;-)

2012 & Three years from 50

**

Today I turned 47. Wow that's a big number!

There are several things that I've been meaning to do for the past several years. Things that I know would make me happy, make me a better person, a better mother and wife. But...,

We all have that little word (but) that holds us back from going after what we really (or think we really) want. For me it boils down to a fear of failing. Which is crazy because by definition, not trying at all is the biggest failure there is.

And, if I'm being honest, a bit of laziness too. On this challenge I really need to just suck it up, make up my mind to move and get started.

So what are those things??

1.) Creating, launching, building my portrait photography business.

2.) Getting healthy. Exercise and diet.

Neither of these should be insurmountable. Neither of these are insurmountable. It's just a matter of getting started - starting now.

Words for 2012: Fit & Frugal.

Goals and milestones? I'll get back to you on this by Friday of next week.

Also - I'm reading the Happiness Project, which I hope will help spur me on.
