Happy New Year!

OK, I know that it is like the 20th of January but since I have just started this blogging thing I thought I was entitled to put on a Happy New Year post! We had a great little pajama party at the house with mom and dad, with food, games, fireworks, and noise!

I think that the new year is a great time to reflect and set goals-not resolutions-but goals. I like looking back over the year and realizing the blessings I have and actually taking the time to be thankful for those blessings. Its something that everyone should do (not just because its a new year). I am happy, healthy, and have a wonderful husband and family; what more could I ask for. I hope this new year brings everyone the desires of their hearts!

Awesome Poem

"Hope" is the thing with feathers—
That perches in the soul—
And sings the tune without the words—
And never stops—at all—
And sweetest—in the Gale—is heard—
And sore must be the storm—
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm—
I've heard it in the chillest land—
And on the strangest Sea—
Yet, never, in Extremity,
It asked a crumb—of Me.

Emily Dickinson
After much pushing from family and friends we have decided to join the blogging world! I don't have a clue what I am doing so bare with me, but we hope this will be a better way to stay close with loved ones far away! Todd and I have been married a year and a half and have loved almost every minute of it :) We are blessed to be close to my family and try to get back to California as often as possible. We are definitely blessed; Life is great!!!
