new year, new journey...

We just arrived home from a whirly~twirly overwhelmingly fun holiday with family and dear friends. I feel exhausted but a good, peaceful exhaustion...if that makes sense.

We are going to spend the next few days napping, unpacking, writing our Mondo Beyondo lists in new gorgeous journals, reflecting on our intentions for the new year, cuddling our kitties, more napping...and ummm...perhaps some napping.

I have much to write about with more fun photographs to share but for now I will rest and revel in all that transpired.

2007 was a year full of so much emotion, challenges, insights, soulful connections, girly retreats, doctors appointments, tests, surgeries, loved ones passing, miracles birthing, coming full circle through it all and finding myself again. I am left feeling in awe and grateful for the deepened growth.

I was told by a gentle woman with a gift to see things that 2008 would be a huge year for me. Not sure what that means but the first few days have already felt magical and full of promise with new fun funky paths to take.

Boho Boy and I have reconnected in a way that goes beyond our desire for a family. We're relishing in our love and what brought us together in the beginning as partners on our journeys. I suppose getting away together inspires such things (note to self: more vacations with hubby).

I feel a calm in my heart. I wish that for each of you as you enter into this new year and new journey.

Did I mention I'll be napping?

I have been lurking for most of 2007 but wanted to "introduce" myself as part of my own personal 2008 new attitude on life. I have struggled with infertility for over five years (husband and I have decided to adopt) and find your words a constant source of strength and hope.

Whereever your journey takes you, I look forward to reading your words and cheering you on from my corner of the blogosphere.

You make me want to nap....did you use the word 'napping'..which mean it will be longer than just a nap?!

My heart is overflowing for your and Boho boys' re-connection...it is so precious...and special...

Big hug, soft cuddles and teacups (for today) full of love!
