I am not a big fan of New Year’s Eve. I never really have been. Not being much of a party girl, I usually spend a quiet evening at home (much more my style). But the part that always gets me is the looking back on the year. I am such a sentimental soul and now that I have children, I realize how quickly the time goes. From one year to the next, they grow and change so much. And while I am grateful for the blessings in our life and the joy we shared in 2009, I always get anxious about the future. That’s just me – I always think, can it get any better than this?
As you move into 2010, remember to pick up your camera and snap everyday moments of your kids while they are young. Nothing moves me more than sitting and looking through old photographs and albums from when I was growing up. I love the silly things like hairstyles, clothing, the cars my parents drove. But mostly, I love seeing who we were – who our family was and the moments we spent together. Many things have changed as the years have come and gone, but the love of family has always been there.
Just looking at the pictures of my babies from the past 12 months makes me all too weepy. I wanted to share a few (ok…a lot) with you here tonight. Some of these are ones you may have seen before but they are some of my favorites.
What a wonderful year! Thank you to all of my wonderful clients and blog followers. 2009 has been an incredible year and here’s to an even more beautiful 2010.
