A Refreshing in 2011

What did 2011 bring me?

I shed years and discovered a "true" new me.

I slowed down and chose paths "on purpose."

I sang, danced, and laughed MORE.

I reconnected with family.

I realized I am a Mom, a Wife, and an Entrepreneur.

I realized that I COULD make peace in the world, one child at a time.

I realized I am an artist.

I faced shame, guilt, and regret head-on.

I realized I am a life-long learner and a photographer.

What will 2012 bring?

To be continued...

  2. This is the most affirming post I've read today. I loved it and all that you've accomplished. I am proud to watch you blossom on this site and in other places, as well.

    You are so talented and it's good that share this. Keep it up in 2012.

    Are you also selling your photographs? I didn't see them at the Etsy Shop or maybe I missed them?

    Happy New Year to you and your family.
