“Nobody can discover the world for somebody else. Only when we discover it for ourselves

does it become common ground and a common bond and we cease to be alone.” - Wendell Berry

no two are alike

Happy New Year everyone!! Can you believe it’s 2011?
Last year seemed to fly, but don’t they all once we grow up? It’s like a vacation.
It takes forever to get there because you are so excited, but the trip home flies by.

Haley wants to be a grown up, she talks about it more and more.
Wants a job, to get married. I remember doing the same thing.
Wishing away precious time. 
 Now if only it would slow down.
I was going through my pictures from 2010 and thought I’d relive some of my favorites here.
Hope you don’t mind. =0)

We started the year with a pretty amazing snow.
Don’t think we’re getting any this year, but I guess anything's possible!!DSC01987
She got up again and again, sometimes with a skinned knee, and sometimes with tears in her eyes,
but Haley eventually learned how to do this:

We attempted to do a “Cookie of the week”,
but were turning into fatties at an alarming rate, so quit after a few months...

But it was fun while it lasted.

And boy did it last. =0)

Haley went on a boat for the first time, and went swimming in the lake.
I can't believe she'd never gone before.
Where did the time go?
(Thank you Kristy for taking us!!)

We laughed,

and I cried (but I'm not showing a picture of that!),
when I turned 30.


On Halloween we met the Big Bad Wolf from “Little Red Riding Hood”. 
Doesn't he looks just like he did in the books?

 My husband and I started to look alike...
Or at least I think so in that picture at least.
I held Haley’s hand while she got her ears pierced for her birthday…

and we pondered life’s deepest questions.

And this guy slept the year away.

Isn't he the sweetest thing?
I just want to squeeze his face.
Lovingly, of course. =0)

This past year I also started blogging! It's been a lot of fun getting to know the technical side of things,
and having people to share my creativity with.
Blogland is better than a magazine isn't it?
It's free, and each day there is new inspiration everywhere!
Plus there are so many women who can share their hearts much better than I can, so that, 
coupled with all the beautiful pictures, really makes for a great place to soothe a tired soul at the end of a long day.

I plan to post my New Year resolutions later this week.
That'll be fun.

Thanks for reading!!

After going to her page I'm not sure if I did ten moments or not though...oops!!!!
