So I was planning on a new blog post to coincide with the arrival of the New Year, but as you can see, that didn't happen! It's just been a steady flow of stuff to do, and somehow updating my blog gets pushed to the back of the line, and then just gets lost in the blurr...Arrggggh...hopeless!
But enough is enough, here I am...finally...back again!
So how ya doin'? Everything okay? I hope the new year, if anything, has brought a feeling of renewed hope to you in your life. A new year, which can mean a new start. A new chance to live the life you want...to be the best YOU you can be. And an opportunity for all of us to make things better.
And with these thoughts in mind, I think a good place to start is by trying to make a point each day to pause, and think about what's good in my life. Being grateful for everything and everyone that I have in my orbit...
So I think I'll "catch two pigeons with one bean", as they say in Italy, and update you on our end-of-the-year holidays activities while at the same time reflecting a bit on the things that I am grateful for in my life. How's that sound?
Okay, then. Here goes:
Santa brought us a new board game, "Malefiz", from Germany, and a couple other ones too, so we've started to really enjoy having those "old-fashioned evenings", hanging out together and playing them as a family.
Well, that's about it for my holiday photos. Oh, almost forgot: we have a brand-new nephew, Oliver, born on the 30th of December:
Nothing like seeing the eyes of a newborn to remind me of how precious life is, of how much good there is in the world, and everything there is in it to be grateful for.
And on that note...Cheers to you and yours!...may this year 2010 bring you everything you need to make your dreams come true! bye for now :)
