Most people reflect back on their year on the first day of the new year, as well as forward to the new year. I decided that since I am 34 today, on the second day of 2009, that would work just as well.
In my 34th year, I had a new baby and traveled to 5 new countries. Ashlyn started kindergarten, and I made 4 quilts. My 35th year will bring more major changes, as our little family will be moving again. We will be starting a whole new life, really. I am most looking forward to introducing my little guy to his aunts, uncles, and cousins. And reintroducing Ashlyn to all of them as well, and a few that she hasn't met, either. My hope for this year is that I can relax and enjoy my family, without stressing about things over which I have no control. I also hope to have more patience with my children, play more games, read more books.
My resolutions last year were to back up my photos onto an online site, and put photos from the year into a photo book. I failed on both counts. I didn't even start putting photos online. While I did begin a photo book for 2007, I only made it to May. Now it is 2009 and I have much more to do. So, these will be my goals again. Except, my goal is to put my photos online by the end of the month. Procrastination will not be allowed for more than a month. I would like to finish my photo book for 2007 by end of the month as well, but that might be a bit too ambitious.
Also, to not get anymore behind I am posting the rest of our photos from 2008 below this.
