happy new year

i’m not the best at sending out holiday greetings these days – hopefully i find other ways throughout each year to let my friends and family know that i love and am thinking of them, but chances are i don’t do the greatest job!

this year was busy. a new apartment, a new job title, disneyland and arizona and the grand canyon, visiting with family. all in all, a good year if you want to classify it as such. it was great to visit with family, i love and miss all of you!

Adventures with Mom

last week Mom came to visit for a few days. we drove around, talked, ate, watched great movies and had a wonderful time. we also found some beautiful foliage at various McMenamins and farmer’s markets.

scanning

i haven’t been taking many photos this week. maybe it is the cold weather, maybe it is the busy schedule, or maybe it is just stress. i have been thinking a lot about vermont, and i have been entering us into the HGTV Dream Home Giveaway (that i saw in Country Living as we don’t actually get HGTV). it is 100% our dream home, and maybe our name will float to the top of the millions of entries – somehow. it did spark me to look through some old photos and pull out a few that really remind me of winter and life there. luckily i got my scanner to cooperate. this makes me want to sit down and scan more of my old photos, even though there is something very special about holding the actual photo in my hand.

reflections

with the Christmas holiday past us, the only thing left to do is relax and try to stay warm. i’m leaving our decorations up for a while – i can’t stand the thought of taking so much happiness away from ninja quite yet. catching up at the day job hasn’t been tough, and i’m almost back into my routine after a week of breaking it. and again we wonder, will it snow??

we spent the last day with Ryan’s parents eating and bowling and watching a scary zombie show. we had a great time visiting with them, and it was sad to see them go! but, onward toward 2011 and whatever great things it may hold.
