Happy Holidays

2011 is soon coming to an end, and I like to spend this time of the year reflecting on life and going back to a simpler life without much technology. I likely won't post again until the last days of the year or maybe even the new year. In the meantime, here are my wishes for you for the next few weeks:


 May you...
 spend your days with those who are dear to your heart
slow down enough to appreciate each day
focus on the "small things"
see this season through the eyes of a child
not worry when things aren't "perfect" 
always remember what this time of year really is about. 

Be well,
Andrea

  3. I will certainly do all of these. Thanks for the reminder Andrea. This is just what I needed! Especially the part about remembering what this time of year is really about. Sometimes that can get lost in such a materialistic society.

    Happy holidays, and we'll "see you next year"!
