January 8, 2011


I had a long heart-to-heart with one of my brothers today, something I don't do quite often enough. Somewhere in our conversation, we talked about time and perspective, and I started to quickly do a mental run-through of the last 10 years. Where on earth did they go so quickly? Long after I'd hung up the phone with him, I was still beside myself at how fast the years have flown by, and I realized that it really is a matter of perspective. My oldest daughter is 5 - and yet, I remember bringing her home like it was yesterday. Time has seemed to speed up with age - and I'm still trying to get a grasp on it.

That said, I can't believe we're a week into 2011 already! I wasn't quite ready to say goodbye to 2010 - the year that brought me my son, a new house, and an interesting mix of opportunities and challenges. Nonetheless, here we are, and I am ever hopeful and anxious for all that 2011 will bring.

As late I am in saying it...Happy New Year!
