My new "do"

For a few years now, I have had the same profile picture.  I liked it because it was a bit anonymous.

Then yesterday I finally decided it was time to update it to something a bit more current. 

AND of course, TODAY....I totally changed my hair!!!!   

So in keeping with starting the New Year with a new Me.  I updated my profile pic. 
Change is good....right?

Where have I been?

WOW, I can't believe its been so long since I updated my blog.  No excuses other than life:-)

Had a wonderful Christmas!  Probably the best one in a long time.  Was lowkey with just my family, my brothers family and my mom.  NICE.

Some good news is I attended my WW weigh in today and lost 2 pounds over the holiday.  THAT was rewarding.  AND, I have lost 35 pounds for the year.  AND, I am at a weight I haven't seen in a LONG time.  Feeling motivated on that front.

Along with losing weight, one of my goals for the New Year is to do more things for ME.  One of those things is journaling, taking pictures....and sharing it all here.

I have a busy week ahead. Going for a year end "makeover" tomorrow.  Changing my hair color and style.  I am BEYOND excited for that.  Of course, I seen a few pics this weekend of myself that I really liked and I had a few seconds hesitation on going for a change.  BUT, I need it ...and I am worth it!   THEN, I am spending the rest of the week getting ready for vacation.  WOOT WOOT.  Friday we are heading to Santa Barbara to visit family, do some sightseeing and having some relaxing time.  David and I are going with my brother and his family.  Only one of my kids that is going is Kayleigh.  Will be interesting to spend New Years down there.

So now, I need to do a bit of research and figure out how to update my blog from "the road".  HA!  Not sure if I am taking my laptop or not?  So you can either expect updates....or you will have to wait till the following weekend when I return.

Happy New Year.  Here's to a GREAT year ahead!!

The Light is Reborn

The Light is reborn.
In the greatest darkness
Out of Winter's cold
From our deepest fears
When we most despair
When all seems lost
When the earth lies waste
When animals hide
From fallen leaves
When the river is frozen
When the ground is hard
From the midst of the wasteland
When hope is gone
Out from the hard times
Shadows are fleeing
Light is returning
Warmth will come again
Summer will be here once more
Plants will grow again
Animals will be seen once more
Life will continue
Green will come again
Death is not forever

The Sun is back

He is born again.
