a new year comes

It is January 3rd and I am slowly coming out of my holiday nest. It was a beautiful season for my family and myself, and I hope that you enjoyed the holidays as much as I did. But as sure as the sun rising in the east, time passes and takes with it this most merriest of seasons. And leaves us with a new year, filled with hopes and possibilities.

Each new year since beginning this blog, I have taken part in Ali Edwards One Little Word. Just a simple word to carry with you over the next year. And this year my word shall be...


A word with such strong meaning for so many... me included. I thought about writing exactly what this means to me, but instead I am going to leave it as only one word. One of my first acts of being free this year.
