I really love the New Year, I love the idea of a fresh start. It is really more then an idea if you put it into practice. There is something cleansing that happens in January a precursor to, what I always view as, the doldrums of February. For some reason the upcoming month is my least favorite. I digress, I was reflecting on the New Year and a fresh start. This is the time of year that I DO NOT resolve, I reflect and consider how I can improve home, health and family.
In December I was lucky enough to land a two week sub position that kept me busy and exhausted. This month has been slow so I am going to take this opportunity to clean, sort and organize. I would love to say that I will post about it regularly - but really who am I kidding- I have not posted since November. Sheesh. Yet I keep the blog, sometimes I wonder why, I am more of a blog stalker then a regular poster. Although, I know if I closed this blog I would miss it. Especially when the whim strikes.
On Sunday, my sister and I threw a shower for my niece, a bridal shower, we had a tea party theme. The vintage mugs and tea cups were the party favor. Pick your own and take it home.
I have to say that this girl amazes me. I have had the privilege of being a part of her life since birth. I think that the best part about being an aunt is I knew I loved her the first day I met her, within days of her birth. Which means I can tell my nieces and nephews that I will always have loved them longer. I have been witness to her growth through the years and so admire her grace, her character (un-matched), and her talent. I find myself a little shaken when I reflect on her journey and the multitude of wise choices she has made that carried her to this place. I am honored to be a small part of her life. The wedding is approaching fast and I am prepared for the on slot of tears that will cascade during the ceremony. But so grounded in the knowledge of the beautiful life they will have together and I can guarantee there will never be a dull moment.
