It's been a year full of ups and downs for me.
I was blessed with a healthy baby girl in January.
To me there is nothing more precious and sacred then a child's innocence.

I've learned that life is full of surprises good and bad.
I've learned that life can be wonderful but it can also be very unkind
I've learned the importance of holding your head high no matter what comes your way
I've learned that life is a journey and a positive outlook is absolutely better than a negative one.
I've learned good friends and family should be cherished.
I've learned it's better to take the high road.
I've learned I despise dishonesty and disloyalty.
I've learned with each passing year we grow a bit wiser!!!!
I've learned a glass of good bubbly can make things seem a whole lot merrier!

Farewell 2010, hello 2011.

I've learned to believe in "fresh starts and new beginnings"! (and so should you)

Wishing you all peace, love, happiness, health and prosperity in 2011. I think it's going to be a great year, I can feel it!

Be back in 2011! Happy New Year!

When faced with diversity it is amazing the inner strength you find and when doing so you learn to love yourself that much more. Choosing to face the world with your head high, showered and accessorized makes you feel all the better too!! I so enjoy your blog and I hope for all the best for you and your family in the new year. Squeeze and hold your little baby girl..they grow so very fast.
