If you are a regular reader, you already know the drill! ;) The entire hop goes live at 8:00 a.m. Pacific (11:00 my time) so if you are early, just check back later to catch everyone!
My one little word for 2011 is "happy". I am focusing this year on what it means to be happy, what makes me happy, how mindful I can be about choosing happiness. Sometimes choosing to be happy can be a challenge. Like when your husband loses his job right before your 50th birthday. Circumstances can really suck sometimes. But I choose to see this life challenge as an opportunity for Jay to find a job which makes HIM happy. He is finally free from the oppressive atmosphere that has dragged down his spirit for the last several years. He isn't as optimistic as I am. I'm hoping I have enough optimism for the both of us and the Universe will see fit to hook him up with something truly wonderful!
And I did a version of the April letter that I'm good with sharing:
The whole painting the edges thing from the iScrap class has stuck with me. Really helps to brighten up this book!
Our May pages involved setting goals. I set a few really short term for May and some longer term to run me through the Summer months.
I even created a third page (not shown) so I can add more goals after these ones are underway!
