8 Happy New Year!!!

I'm so excited for 2008...for me it means new beginnings and new adventures. 2007 was a great year! Last night while we visited my family (all of us were there!!!) we played a game that I had prepared (thanks Tiff!!) where we answered questions about each other and reflected on the year that has past. It was a fun time to be able to spend together and remember the things that have happened to us this last year! I'd have to say that for me...it was my favorite New Years Eve ever! It was so wonderful being with family! My cute niece and nephew just stole my heart...they are the sweetest kids! So thanks family for a great week!

I'm setting a goal here on my blog. I am going to participate in Project 365 this year. It's something I've been wanting to start for awhile, but now with the new year, it gives me a good excuse. I have always been an advocate for documenting my life in photos. Even though I'm not the best photographer, I want my children to always remember their life experiences. So this year...I'm going to do just that. I'm going to take one photo each day! So here's my first one...



This was taken this morning just before we left to come home. To me it starts the year off right...with family. My one word for this year is family. That is most important to me and I want to keep it that way all year long!!

One last thing...here's a layout I did that helped me remember some of the wonderful times we had together!! Take a look at our year in review:

Yeah Emily! It seems like it's been way too long :) I'm so glad that you had a great time with you family. We'll have to compare notes later;) Love the whole family pics and the layouts are so fun to look at! I love the Project 365 idea! Though I guess it will have to be 364 since I didn't take one yesterday, hehe.

Awesome idea for a resolution, though with my new camera I will probably take more than one a day. And, your layout is beautiful! Can't wait to watch the kids tomorrow...should be a lot of fun. London is so excited.
