It certainly took me awhile to come up with
my 2014 word
I had been writing words down for weeks
trying to decide which was the perfect one for me
as of New Years Eve
the list was growing
but nothing was sounding perfect!
I truly sat quietly a few minutes before midnight,
soft music playing
hubby already asleep
(for he was duck hunting the next day)
I suddenly heard an inner whisper
soft but assuring
It wasn't even on my list of words!
Yet there it was ... the perfect word for my new year
Intentional meaning ...
done in a way that is planned or intended
made, given or done with full awareness
of what one is doing
done by design
YES that is the perfect word for me
looking forward to the adventure
this new year brings!
I am ready to leave this past year behind.
One thing for sure is that I want
to be more regular with my blog postings
Since I am off now on Wednesdays,
that seems to be the perfect
Blog writing day for me!
See you soon
May your new year be filled with
Wonder and Amazement
and the gift of contentment in all things
I wish you love and peace

As I look back on 2013, I realized I captured so many
beautiful life moments
with my camera in hand.
I loved participating in 52 Photos Project as well,
it continues to teach me to always look at life
with a photographer's eye.
Believe me ... it took me awhile
to actually call myself
and actually believe it!
Here are some random photos,
favorite moments I captured
this year that mean
the world to me.
Hard to narrow them down to just these.
So many yummy life moments happened!
I am sharing openly with YOU!
It was a good 2013
full of growth, new experiences
and I became a
grand mommy for the first time!
Just how far I had come in photography
I am always seeking stillness

I hope that you will take the time
to reflect on all the blessings of your
very own 2013!
So many moments,
experiences, words written,
new lessons learned.
times of happiness and sorrow.
All wrapped up into 2013
and on to a new year.
I wish you love and peace,
time of precious moments with your family,
time for creativity
and most of all
a desire to be creative within you,
where ever that creative path leads you.
take some chances
and grow beyond measure!
See you here in 2014
Love to you,
