new (ear)

today is the last day of two thousand ten. I have many things to grateful for, many. i also feel as if the year has flown by but at the same time dragged because i stood still, i must confess that this year my personal growth, achievements and travel were minimal and i find myself disappointed in me. I have no regrets for the most part and when i think of splash my new horse and companion to tolstoy i am grateful for two thousand and ten, when i think about my ducks and chickens i am grateful for two thousand and ten, when i think about the time spent with elle & dylan i am grateful for two thousand ten and many other reason to be.

i like the sound of two thousand and eleven, i do and this year will be  HUGE.
I want to be a mama
i want to be healthy and yes thin even though saying so is somewhat not politically correct.
i want to  do less of the things that make me unhappy and more of the things that bring happiness
i want to read more, be a better friend, attend more plays and operas. i want to ride more, write more
sleep more. simply more of the good things. I want to say yes to more clients, want to take longer walks sans camera. i want to be a better aunt, daughter, sister and wife.  I have never believed in new years resolution by date but  i can not wait and welcome the gift of a clean slate!

when i was a little girl  i watched my mother get ready along with my father for a new years eve party. my mother looking so beautiful, i  remember being  in awe of my parents all dressed up.at the door as they were leaving they said "I will see you next year "what"i said they said "tomorrow we will have a new year" what i heard is "tomorrow you will have a new ear" i cried and cried " but why mama, why do i need a new ear?:)

happy new year my friends.

It is shaping up to be a very special 2011 indeed! My Grandma always told us to make sure to say "Rabbit!" on the morning of January 1st, for good luck, and since her birthday falls on this day I feel she must be right. So I"ll say it twice, once for me and once for you! I hope you get what your heart has been asking for. Happy New Year Nadia.

Your year past, captured through your amazing heart and eye, has filled my year with lots and lots of beauty - thank you for that!

May 2011 bring you a dream-come-true year. There is something delicious about a clean slate, isn't there? Enjoy!!! I look forward to watching it unfold...
