New Years Eve: after dinner, plates have been cleared, guests have broken off into little groups......five minutes later this scene changed dramatically! Everyone was gathered around the dining room table once again for a competitive (and loud) boys vs girls game of taboo

New Years gets me to thinking about things I should or shouldn't be doing.  However, let's skip formal resolutions this year and trust that:

- my boys will continue to teach me how to be a better mom
- the baby weight will melt away when I get outside
- the blog will motivate me to pay attention to (and enhance) details around our home
- my time will be spent doing things I enjoy: walking (everywhere), jogging, reading, taking photos, traveling, learning, organizing, and blogging


  1. Awww cute baby toes....your year has already started great!

  3. Thanks for stoping by today! Looks like a great list for a great year - I particularly miss much harder and expensive with kids. Cheers to a great 2012!
