Christmas Time!

Here are some photos of Christmas decorating,
our first snow this season,
and other random moments this month.

I'm making ornaments every year for River and my niece, Mallory, like my Nanny did. This year I made the owl.

Dada and River put the star on the tree!

Our little cabin in the woods

Santa Love still rocks!

The bottom third of the tree is left undecorated and without presents. We planned ahead.

This Wren Adventure deserves its own blog. Long story short. It flew out of our Christmas wreath when I walked outside. It flew into the back of my hair, and then got confused and flew into our house. I had to call Ryan in from work to help with the removal. It didn't take long for the wren to fly out the door. The removal involved some sheets, a couple of brooms, an open door, and lots of muscadine bird poop to clean up.

Letting Go and New Creations

Over the last few days I've been thinking....Uh-oh. That can be dangerous, but this time I think it's a good thing.

2010 is wrapping up. We have a couple of weeks left of this year, and I've been pondering about things I want to leave behind before 2011 gets here. When I started thinking about that, then I started thinking what do I want to do in 2011. Then, it all began unwinding from there.

So, here's my plan. And if any of you want to join me on this adventure, I'd love to have you do this too.

I beginning a few lists:

1) Things I Want to Leave in 2010. I already have 5 or 6 things I don't want to bring with me into the new year. Here's sneak peek: Worrying about finances. I'd like to leave that junk in 2010.

2) Goals and Positive Intentions for 2011. I've created categories like Personal, Career, Ryan, River, Family, Friends, and Miscellaneous. Under each category I have anywhere from 2 -4 goals or intentions.

3) Plan of Action. Some of my intentions need a little bit of strategy to them. For example, one of my career goals is to double my massage practice. My P.O.A. is to hand out some brochures and business cards in the community and network with other health care providers. Now, not all of my categories need an explanation, but I feel like some of my goals need a little direction.

On New Year's Eve, I'm going to share my Letting Go list with whomever I'm with and of course, YOU, and burn my list....taking some action in letting it go.

Then, I'll read to my "party goers" and the world wide web my Goals for 2011.
Throughout the year, I'll share and keep my blogging world up to date on some of the goodness that happens.

I'd love for you to do it with me. Take some time over the next couple of weeks and jot down your ideas. I'd love to hear about your experience too.

Lots of Love and Warmth to you!!
