Please Help A Friend

My friend Melanie needs help naming her new design. So if you could just go visit her blog and help her out that would be great. I am currently knitting this wonderful little sweater up and I am in love. It is really a nice knitting experience. It is my first sweater and has helped me over my fear of all things that seem complicated. Also if you have a moment go visit her store. She is very talented. Oh I forgot to mention, the person that gives the winning name gets a little prize so go help another mama out.

Happy New Year

2008 is going to be a big year!! My husband and I will celebrate 15 years of marriage. I will celebrate my 35th year of life. Our oldest will be 10 and our youngest will turn 2. So many wonderful things upon us this year I am so excited to get started.
Today has started off as a very ordinary day. Laundry is going and breakfast is cooked but these are the days I treasure most.
The one thing that I learned in 2007 was to stop living in the past. I have come to realize that we are blessed with 18 years to really get to know our kids. If we are lucky the might hang around a bit longer. I have decided to stop focusing on relationships that have had their day and instead to focus solely on my family. I want a solid bond between my kids and my husband and I so that when they do go out in the world they have no doubt of our love and can really focus on new and more exciting things than "why do my parents not approve".
So on our Anniversary instead of a cabin in the woods for 2 it will be a tent for 6 in the back yard. And you know what it will be the best Anniversary ever.
I have one resolution this year.
