What you have not been is boring, nor have you ultimately let me down.
Family and friends are healthy and we are still here, gainfully employed and living in a sturdy home.
You also gave me the most incredible birthday present ever. A once in a lifetime (actually once in 450 years) full lunar eclipse on the winter Solstice. What more could a Solstice baby ask for?
I am surrounded by family members who love me, friends that are true gifts and a husband of the ultimate order.
I continue to write and create and to find success in those endeavors. And no matter how small those successes may appear to some, I count every single one as a win. Each is an invaluable bit of kindling that keeps my creative fire lit and my motivation strong.
2011, you have some mighty big shoes to fill, but I know you won't let me down.
May we all have the most successful year ever, in whatever way we measure our own success.
