Happy New Year!

2013 is 29 minutes away.

My husband is in bed not feeling well.

I am rocking my sweet girl back to sleep.
She is snoring softly in my ear.

It has been a long time since I brought in the New Year by myself.

I'll have to celebrate with the dog, but he will likely be in bed with my husband.

2013, what do you have in store?

2012 came and went so swiftly and with many changes in a seemingly short span of time. A whirlwind of the most lovely, surprising and welcome sort.

It is hard to believe that the little one will turn two in 2013.
My husband and I will celebrate 12 years together and six years married. I hope to create and cultivate more joy and love and peace in 2013.

From Tennyson's "In Memoriam":

Ring out the old, ring in the new
Ring happy bells across the snow;
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.


  1. Happy New year. Emmeline was up at exactly midnight for the first time in months. It was a nice quiet moment for us. Tell me more about the joys you hope to cultivate and how you will measure if you were successful

    1. I feel like I am missing everything, like i am too busy trying to hold everything together instead of enjoying the moments, finding joy in the every day.
      I also want to get back to doing the things i love like playing music, singing, writing, crafting and releasing all of those creative energies into the world. joy for me and joy for "them" whoever they are.
      I'll keep you updated.
