howdy, ho!

how is everyone?
just want to give a shout out to everyone getting slammed with ice right now...hoping you are safe and warm!

I have a sneak for feb 15!

Also wanted to let ya'll know i am putting a slide together for last months prompt. thanks so much for the inspiration! i loooved seeing what everyone is pretty amazing what you want, isn't it?

i saw some of us used the word "selfish" and that is one of the reasons i wanted to do this challenge so badly b/c we are not selfish for wanting our own lives, our own dreams and our own wants. don't ever let anyone tell you different.

this is how i think of i want my kids growing up seeing that i sacrificed what made me happy? no way. discovering what we want will help us find BALANCE.

BALANCE. my word for this year.'s to next month! cheers.

What I want, Prompt #3

Do you ever think about what you want? It could be anything from wanting chocolate right here and right now, to wanting a better future for your children that you might not have had.

It is a new year, a time of resolutions...but let's be we stick to them? What is it that you really want? Do you want lose 20 lbs or do you want to just be generally more happier with who you are? Do you want more time in the day for the things that are important? Or do you want a new camera?

you get the idea...have fun with it...or be serious...just be honest.

so...with that being said....our prompt for January is to tell us What you want.

This is what we have to say...

Journaling:It’s a simple question, really. Yet it’s one that took me awhile to figure out. I’m so used to defining my desires by my family – what I want is for my husband and my children to be happy, etc. I guess there within is my answer. I want to have my own hobbies and skills without neglecting my family. As much as I love being a mommy and wife, I need to have interests and skills beyond changing diapers and kissing boo-boos. It isn’t easy to make myself part of my priorities while still taking time to play with my kids, snuggle with tony and keep the house in order. Clearly balance is what I need. Balance is what I want.


Journaling: To continue on this journey I've recently started with the piano. To always have patience with myself while practicing. To enjoy the beauty of the notes and the instrument. To always know that it took guts and strength to start lessons at this age. To know that i can be amazing at it.


I want .... make better choices continue to grow for me forgive and forget do everything that makes me happy




i don’t care if you smoke. i admit to craving a cigarette here and there,
i am not perfect. But don’t throw your cigs on my lawn & don’t throw
them out the window so they hit my car and lie on the side of the
road. And don’t throw your trash in my yard either.
How hard is it to wait til you get to a garbage can?

Making it Count

Just some thoughts as we are approaching our next prompt. Don't forget that just because we aren't posting layouts every time we post, doesn't mean you can't find inspiration in our posts...we will be adding thought provoking quotes and tidbits to help keep the inspiration going b/w the 15th of each month.

Here is something to think about:

"The beginnings of all things are small."
Marcus Tullius Cicero

"Imagination is the best beginning of creation. You imagine what you desire, you will what you imagine and at last you create what you will.
George Bernard Shaw

So whether you are starting fresh this year or building on 2008, 2009 can be whatever you choose, whatever you desire, whatever you will create.
