In 2009 my word was Vitality, In 2010 my word was Photograph...which I did every day for 365 days! I read a lot of tutorials and challenges about photography and I do think that I made some improvements.
From organize, I came up with arrange, systematize, blueprint, etc...but they all seemed a little too mundane! Then I came across Clarify...
Clarify was good, but still not the right word...that led me to tidy, tailor, filter, get act together, sort...still not right
Then I came across Travel...ahhh this sounds like I could be getting closer to the word that describes what I would like to do in 2011. Now this is not the traditional travel, like getting on a jet plane and circling the globe, oh no...this is the travel down memory lane, roaming through boxes of old photos, taking a trek through a "vintage" stack of photos with negatives, taking a journey back in time when my 18 year old William and 16 year old Jackson were just tiny little things with feet that smelled good! I think that is my word for 2011, TRAVEL!
Christmas Eve at Grandy and Grandpa's was amazing and festive this year. We enjoyed the children's choir at St. Pat's at 4:00 and then off to 348 6th Ave for some dinner and gifts. Grandpa read his annual book to all the kids and Santa made a stop to pass out some presents for the little ones. Pete, Jake, Jack, Brooke and Holly turned 16 in 2010, so they got to come upstairs with the adults for the gift exchange...what a fun year for them!
