The other night we said good bye to 2010 and hello to 2011. I’m not sure why we celebrate New Year’s Eve really…imagine if we celebrated the end of every month like we do the year?!?!? Craziness! Personally, I think we should celebrate the end of each day. Each and every one is new and bursting with possibilities. It’s also not guaranteed, but when we wake up the morning we should cheer that we are alive to be a part of it. This year was full of new experiences and adventures and I can’t wait to see what 2011 brings.
This New Year’s eve, as most others, I was at home with my husband and daughter watching movies (Furry Vengeance and Salt). While watching movies I participated in #NYEknit on Twitter with @knitpurlgurl in PA, @spinndiva in WA, @sandbar17 in OH, and new twittah knittah sistah’s @knitiot in VA and @CowlickCottage in FL. What fun it was to ring in the New Year with my family and virtual friends 🙂
I’ve decided that I will give Project 365 a go again this year. The 365 project is a photography project where you document a year of your life by taking a daily photo. I did it back in 2008 as a way to make me a better photographer and challenge myself photographically. I made it 93 days and then abandoned it. But for whatever reason I’m feeling the pull to give it a go again. I’m looking for a place to post the daily photos so I don’t bore you on here with my mundane life on a daily basis. As soon as I’ve found the best spot I’ll be sure to post here and let you know so you can look if you’d like.
After January 1st also means it’s time to do a Christmas cleanse of our house – all decorations must come down. Mark got a jump start on me today and took the tree apart but not before I snapped a photo of 4 of my favorite ornaments.
So in honor of the end of one year, the start of another here’s a toast to you with a quote by the great Benjamin Franklin…
“Be always at war with your vices, at peace with your neighbors, and let each New Year find you a better man.” Happy New Year everyone!
