2011 over! Check! Clean slate, fresh start, new palette, that all sounds good to me! Ahhhhhhh......
New Year's Day Michael and I like to review our "completions" for the previous year and then make what we call a "Heart Chart" for the coming year.
Last year was amazing for many reasons, here are our Top Ten (apologies to David Letterman and my friend and fellow blogger Maria Wimmer).
#10 The dinning room reno we had been planned (FOREVER) became a reality!
#9 The bathroom mosaic I had been working on (FOREVER)...finis!
#8 Artist and wonder husband Michael's many creative and successful opportunities this year, with four art shows, representation at two galleries and many private sales!
#7 Teaming up this with our dear friend and Albuquerque Yoga instructor Gloria Drayer and creating Yoga + Art in Umbria, Italy 2012!
#7 Spending time with family this summer. Connecticut coast, Mason's Island, a vacation home for 10, 2 kayaks and a week together, awesome!
4. Visiting Chicago for the first time! Spending time with my dear "cosmic daughter" Kendra and her wonderful Jason.
3. Time spent on a road trip with my mom...
#2 Working up the personal courage to: start blogging, learn Photoshop and show my mosaic work at the Recycle Santa Fe show in November.
#1 ...and at the TOP of 2011...The marriage of our son Sean and his beautiful and very smart wife Meghan at the incredibly gorgeous Ocean House Hotel in Watch Hill, Rhode Island. A beautiful event, flawlessly orchestrated by our new friends and family, Meghan's talented and delightful parents, John and Susan Clancy. It was one for the books; a perfect day filled with the love of family and friends.
Michael and I are working on our "Heart Chart" today for 2012; looking forward to creating, loving, and living each day of this year with ease and grace. At the top of our list is our wish for you to have a Brilliant 2012!
