Wow, has another cycle passed already?? That must mean it’s been a great year (and it has)! There is so much I want to put here in this public space, but I just can’t yet; however, there is so much going on, and soon I can talk about it freely. In the meantime, for those of you who remember when I posted pics of my engagement ring last Yule, I want you to know that exactly a year later I now have the wedding ring that I’d always intended to match with it. AND IT’S GORGEOUS! OMG Yes, I do still plan to do the wedding to myself, and I have even chosen the theme for the event. I doubt Mom and Gramma can attend in person, so I am thinking that including them via Skype would be nice. I can record everything and put it on Youtube after the fact. At any rate, I am very excited about everything and very grateful, too. 🙂
Tomorrow I have some work to do, and then I go briefly visit family for the holidays, after which I will be going to Paris, France for a week for New Year’s. Won’t that be amazing?! OMG I love my life.
I was far more thorough and precise about recapping 2010, but I just don’t feel like doing that this time around. Suffice it to say that I exceeded all my financial goals, I have started working on the website I’ve been envisioning since the spring of 2009, and I’ve strengthened some personal bonds with some very wonderful people. I am happy. 2011 has been a magnificent year for me personally, professionally, and creatively. I hope that however 2011 treated you that 2012 will be better yet. Also, it’s Yule – the Winter Solstice – the longest night of the year. This is when we celebrate the rebirth of the sun. Although the world is going to sleep, and the temperatures may drop, remember that from this point going forward the days are getting longer. If there is darkness in your life, meditate on the fact that the light is already returning. Have hope, and let this period of rest and planning be the preparation that allows you to leap forward into spring.
