“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”
― Roald Dahl

New Year

How is everyone?
I'm doing great, to be honest.
This new year started off on a happy note.
lot's of things have been happening..
I'll give you a condensed version of the highlights.
And....my word of the year has been chosen!

Christmas was different,
I have spent every year of my life
at my house on that day
but this year I didn't 
and I really liked it.
I got some incredible, heartfelt gifts.
One that particularly touched my heart and made me cry
was this:

It's a runestone from the Hobbit movie..
I find it hard to explain why I love it so much...
just know it was the best gift I've ever received.

On New Year's eve 
My daughter got an email letting her know she's on the A.S.U. dean's list!!
We were so excited we called everyone we know.
I'm so very proud of her!

An old friend that I never ever thought I'd hear from again
found me on Facebook and it's like we never stopped talking!
The last time we spoke was on myspace, lol... probably eight years ago.
I truly believed he was dead!
So it was a very nice surprise.
I've also made some new friends recently
really honest, supportive and totally unexpected friends...

Oh! it snowed here on New Year's Eve!!
Big fat floppy snowflakes, actual snowflakes falling from the sky!!
It was completely magical and gorgeous! 
Like a gift :-)

My word of the year is
  I'm afraid of affirmations sometimes..
because you get what you ask for
that's for sure..
My word last year was bloom or blossom
and yes I did that,
I bloomed, grew, transformed.
I chose Magic because
I want more of it in my life.
It may sound like a silly word
but I know
it's going to force me to become stronger
to take leaps of faith.
I'm ready.

I'm done for today..
just wanted to leave you with a song
I've been obsessed with lately.
It reminds me of .... starlight and fire moons.

May your year be everything you ask for..
