Happy beginning of the year, and happy 10th! Once again a new year brings on new goals and revitalized ambition. It's a bit cliche, I know, but it's nice to have a time annually when you can actually focus and review past accomplishments and areas of potential improvement.
Before we get too far into that though, let me make sure to encourage you all to check out the other 10 on 10ers. As always, they will have something good for you on their site as well:
Back to the new year. One of our big goals for this year is to spend more time with our niece. If you couldn't tell yet, we're a bit obsessed with her. Who wouldn't be?! She's about the most fun ever.
Last week we went down to Mac to spend the day with her and the fam. I love seeing how much she grows and how much she has learned each time we see her. And I really love seeing how much she loves her uncle and wants to crawl all over him. I find that too often we get caught up in all the complexities of life: work, school, house work, etc., and while those things are all important, I try to take a step back and look at what we have right in front of us. Hit the pause button so to speak. Be present. We have so much to be thankful for and I want to be in the moment and soak it in, because this little girl is already a year and half old and I have no idea how that happened.
Myra, we love you so much and can't wait to see all the new things you do. Well, that's not true, we can wait, you already grow too fast. It's amazing to watch you learn and experience the world. You wear us out every time we visit, but we always walk away with the biggest smile and can't wait to see you again.
Until next time,
