Merry Christmas, Here's to 2012!

video
Merry Christmas, friends. We had a lovely Christmas. Perhaps my favorite one yet :)

This week, I've been thinking about this year and the year to come. I'm struck by how fast 2011 went.

One whole year in this new job and I feel good and ready to take on 2012. While 2011 was about adapting to ever-changing norms, I think 2012 will be about me making this work for me.

I'm proud of what we've accomplished and ready for a new year. 


One benefit to this job is that I'm always equipped with a camera, or at least an iPhone. I captured more "moments" in the every day this year than ever before.

While I didn't do much (any) scrapbooking, I'm so glad to be able to do something with all those images I took, all those moments of recording people secretly :) This feels like our year. And I do enjoy Kenny Loggins. Hope you do too.

Dec. 11

Card making and present buying and cookie baking seems to happen on Sundays.

Three things on a Saturday leaves it feeling special and busy.

Dec. 9

What was once so popular is next season's clearance toy. But none of it seems necessary at all.

It seemed much lighter than this when I was running, but still it was dark at 5:15 p.m. It feels so good to be out moving around. "There is no bad weather, only bad clothing."

Dec. 7

Surprise tickets to the theater - what a wonderful gift from a good friend.

I'm so glad for coworkers who meet me for a few hours. It's nice to remember I'm not alone in this job!

Dec. 5

Today I felt like I needed to write down just what I accomplished because it didn't feel like much. At least I can point to cans of honey lemon apple jam and cinnamon pear jam, tied and under the tree. That's something.

December 4

Come over, she said. Mom made soup. We're hanging out. We watched "The Hangover" and I practiced playing Jingle Bells (over and over again). Sometimes the best nights are last minute and unplanned.

Sometimes I need to take many many photos until I am satisfied we've found the right one.

At a fun and funky shop in Augusta -- vintage Christmas cards with puffy, silky covers out front. How sweet.

typing up an article about tips for a greener Christmas, I discover I am already using reusable, fabric bags, and here why not photograph one to illustrate the story.
