one little word: happy new year!

happy new year!

i had intended to greet 2015 with my eyes wide open, but g and i had a blast at our friends' house last night and didn't let go of 2014 till 3:00 in the morning.  i'm a little sleepy around the edges today, and g is still sleeping.  life is good, right?

i couldn't find any great unshared photos, so this is what you get.  a little peek at what will be my first layout of 2015.  it was a good 90% done yesterday, is still a good 90% done today, and will likely still be a good 90% done tomorrow.  it's all good.

i've chosen my word for 2015.  "changes."  the thing is, 2014 was good.  really good.  g and i enjoyed it thoroughly.  i'm tempted to just say "more of the same."  but, changes are inevitable for us this year.  jenni has embraced a new future for her business, so now i have the freedom to rethink how papercrafting fits into my life.  g crosses over from cub scouts to boys scouts in march and then graduates the 5th grade and starts middle school in the fall.  woah.  and, darn it!, i really do want to paint my house this year!

so, changes are on the horizon.  i feel we should greet them with arms wide open.  embrace them.  make them our own.

i signed up for ali's "one little word" class for the first time ever.  that's a change, right?

i hope this first day of a brand new year is finding you open to the opportunities for happiness that life presents.

(go seminoles! ;),



  1. Can't wait to see how you're going to change up your paper crafting...! "Share more Los please" is my rather selfish response!!! Happy New Year!

  2. Wow, there's a word full of exciting possibilities! Wishing you lots of joy with it in 2015 ...

  3. A Happy, happy New Year full of possibilities to both of you! Hope it's a great one.
