Merry Merry & Happy Happy

Christmas 2010 - What a difference 1 year makes! Although the holidays are a mix of many emotions, I'm glad to say I'm much happier than I was last year! So much has changed in 1 year, for the worst yet for the best. What a difference it makes spending Christmas morning with a 3 year old rather than a 2 year old too!! My niece Willa, recently 3, entertained us all on Christmas morning with her enthusiasm and excitement. It was great to have a relaxed holiday with my family. Talking to a friend about Christmas we laughed about every family having their own traditions (sometimes strange!) around the holidays and how it often takes a while to get used to other families traditions. Lucky for me I was able to be with my family on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.

As 2010 comes to an end (unbelievably), I am reflecting on all that has happened in the last 365 days. I have become a stronger person overall but I never would have made it without the love and support of my dear friends and family (OK..and champagne and Lady Gaga too). To think 1 year ago I wanted to hideaway and sleep forever seems unreal. There still are the occasional meltdowns, but I suppose that is to be expected. The ups and downs of life are amazing to me. I am looking forward to 2011, a new year and a new life for me.

Happy New Year!

December...so far so great!

Since the last time I've blogged SO many awesome things have happened. I visited some great friends and family in Colorado where I lived for a year in 05-06. It was a little strange to be back - but it was so great connecting with friends and family again. I even went to my first Roger Waters/Pink Floyd concert in Denver which was incredible! As I came home it was time for Thanksgiving...which I had been dreading, however, I had an amazing, relaxing day with my family. I realized that I have become more comfortable and relaxed with life over the last year.

In the midst of all that, I sold this great little cottage in Seal Harbor to amazing clients - very, very happy for them. Tis the season of course for holiday happenings and I have already been to a few great holiday gatherings - one that was entitled "cupcakes and champagne" umm, the best party yet! This weekend our house will host a holiday party which will be so great - I love showing off our fabulous home and even better I love having all my darling friends in one spot to celebrate!!! I'm thinking I'll make a champagne punch...ha.

I'm sure this month will have its ups and downs but I am thankful I have fabulous people in my life to share with!
