I've chosen my one little word for the new year: grace: thoughtfulness toward others; goodwill; seemingly effortless charm of movement.  Firstly, those who know me well know that I don't come by physical grace naturally.  It's an effort and one I intend to continue working toward with my yoga practice.  I'm working on a new project for 2011 called Hearts of Orange, Crafting for the Common Good.   It's a year long effort of crafting for others that starts tomorrow.  

Have you chosen a word for 2011, yet?  I've found that my word takes on new dimension as the year rolls on and brings new things into my life I hadn't expected.  I can't wait to see what grace brings in 2011.  Happy New Year.

Thank you for all the wonderful anniversary wishes.  It was an amazing beautiful getaway.  We spent time in the Denver/Boulder area of Colorado.  The last time we were there was on a cross country trip before we had our son, so about 16 years ago.  It was just as lovely as we remembered and we even ate at the same microbrewery that we hit the last time we were in Boulder.  So many fond memories of that trip flooded back.  We created lots of new memories and it definitely won't be our last trip there.  We already have a list of things we'd like to do and see.  A long weekend just wasn't enough time.

Sorry to have been away from the blog for so long.  We got home from the trip and it was Thanksgiving and then all of the Christmas preparation began.  Such a busy and fun time of year.  We are so thankful that everyone is healthy and happy for the holidays.  Looking forward to lots of yummy cookies and laughter.  I  hope you have a beautiful holiday season.
