My gift is to follow my heart toward a new career path. Photography, painting, sewing, baking...I feel limitless.

my gift is realizing photography was my passion all along, and trying to make something of it.

My gift is still loving my son, who was given to us on August 7th, s2007 at two days old by his birthmother. I love him with all my heart and soul. I wait what seemed forever to become a mother and every day I am thankful that I was chosen to be his. He is my gift and I want to be his. Enjoy every day of the next year, watch him so closely, the time flies by. Your so lucky your so talented with your photography and writing, you will catch it all! Cedar is beautiful!

Peace to you in the new year!

I feel that my gift may lie in writing, but I still do not feel free enough to share the words that bounce in my brain.

Happy New Year Boho Family!!!

My gift is self awareness... My desire to look inside to find out why things are the way they are.. not to be afraid of the dark corners...the courage to clear the cobwebs and bring light to my soul....

I feel ready to give life this year.. to the next chapter in my life... with my future husband (getting married in September) reconnecting with my greeting cards...learn something, love something (or many somethings) , continue to take care of my body (continue running every day), mind (take digital photography class) and spirit (rejoin meditation class)...

thank you so much for that... lovely wishes for all of us and some that I desperately want...

from your lips to the universe's ears

my gift is being present to all that is around me and giving as much as I can of myself to anyone who needs it -- without expecting anything in return.

happy new year ... happy new family!

my gift is to live the life I am meant to. an extraordinary life only i can live. my true path. a life filled with passion, purpose, wonder, love, adventure, creativity and grace. a life that leaves my soul drenched with gratitude and bliss. and i am feeling my way through the chatter and the fear and the confusion and trusting my heart to lead the way.

thank you for being one of the sacred places i can go when i need encouragement, a sense of solidarity and comfort. you have no idea how much it means to me.

thank you

I have way too much love swirling around in my head and heart. I need to give it away! I will find a man who deserves it and deserves me and deserves my daughter and cherishes all the love and laughter and light I can throw at him. I will find a healthy relationship that encourages me to reach further, to dig deeper and to be more. This is the gift I will give to myself (and him) in the new year.

Happy new year to you and your beautiful family!

To continue on my journey of self discovery.

To really LEARN how to use my camera.

To make new friendships and nurture the ones I have already.

To come to really truly love and accept myself.

To finally step out of my shell and start writing my book...

To nurture my family and for all of us to grow in our love.

xoxo

08 was a year of realizing and owning who i really am.
09 will be a year of sharing it, pushing my art, taking on photo shoots, not being afraid to be talented. it will be a year of forging new friendships and strengthening the dear ones i have already. it will be a year of progress. and it's gonna kick ass.

(((hugs)))

Oooh, what an absolute darling he is.

My gift this year? Faith. Faith in myself, in my ability as a writer, and in the universe. Faith that THIS YEAR is going to be the year that I break out of my cocoon and fly.

Happy new year!

This year my gift is Action. I'm still learning how To Be and will always practice that. But I feel like now is the time To Act, and I can't wait to see where that takes me.

I fell behind in reading your blog last year, but had seen enough to know that you were experiencing the joyous arrival of your baby boy. Heartfelt congratulations and blessings on your new journey into motherhood. Wishing you and your beautiful family all good things in 2009.

i want to chip away at all of my worries, all of my doubts, all of my insecurities about money, and success, and the future and listen to my heartsong. what my heart is whispering to me through all the noise and chaos. i want to bring out my true identity...an artist. i want to rekindle my love affair with art.
