December 31, 2012

My 365...

As the year 2012 comes to a close, these are the lessons, memories, thoughts I want to take with me into 2013...

You can never love too much.  

There comes a time when you have to let go, and never look back.

There is good in all things that happen in our lives.  Every dark cloud does indeed have a silver lining.

It is important to be kind to yourself.

Remember to breathe...deeply, fill your lungs at least once a day.

My sons are the most amazing human beings on the planet.  

Being a grandmother is wonderful.

Life starts at 51...and it rocks!

There is no greater fun than riding a bike.

Always finish what you start.

Continue to capture every day in a photo or two.

Life is definitely worth the "occasional" struggle. :)

I know without any doubt that 2013 is going to be a "freaking AMAZING" year!

Our family is growing, with another grandbaby on the way....oh that makes me SO happy!  Garrett will be starting college in a few weeks and I know he is going to do so well.  Brandon is working hard, and life for him, Amber and my precious Cooper will be wonderful...especially with a new wee one on the way.  <3  Casey turns 18 in February, and I am going to have to start letting go a little more.  *Gasp*  "Really, do I have to?"  Yep, I have to.  His exciting journey in life is just beginning, and I know it will be full of adventure and awesomeness.  And Blake...Blake will continue to be the light of our lives.  I just pray I have the energy to keep up with him.

Thank you God for this past year, and thank you in advance for all the great, wonderful adventures to come.

Last photo for 2012 of four of my favorite people.  Brandon, Amber and Cooper are my favorite people too...they just could not be here today.  <3

Son Garrett, and his sweetheart Kori.

 Son Casey.
 Son Blake.
For dinner I made some Queso, and we had some delicious tamales with guacamole and salsas.
For desert, double fudge brownies topped with vanilla bean ice cream and fresh berry glaze.  All melty and delicious.

A perfect way to ring in the New Year.

Happy New Year Planet!!!
