I can't believe just how fast this year has gone by, and we are already getting ready to start a new one!!Where did the time go? Obviously not on my blog,haha, it is so poorly neglected lately. Maybe this new year will prove to be different and I'll learn some time management skills,haha....So how was your year? Mine was quite a roller coaster to say the least, but what an adventure. Now that we are "officially" retired from the military, and have adjusted a little to our new life, Eric and I are having a fun time taking on the challenges of life together (literally). Its fun having him around at home all the time, mostly because we are both movie junkies, and LOVE to watch Star Trek (any of them) together, but also, because we laugh, talk, (and sometimes just stare out into nothingness with a blank expression of complete tiredness to point of almost drooling) together while the kids are in the constant "on" position destroying everything in the house around us. Sometimes we fight, ok, we are human, me and my logic (Live long, and prosper), and he and his humor ("Nacho Libre" style) are quite the match, but always end up in each others arms by night, usually me laughing and him asking me what we had been arguing about. He is like a VERY encouraging comic version of Santa Claus, so sweet, jolly, and funny all at the same time, how could I argue with that? With that being said, we do look forward to whatever God has planned for us in this new year. AND, I am also looking forward to the Pixel Scrapper January Blogtrain that will kick off on Jan. 1st with some of the best designs from some very talented designers, they just get better and better every month:) I wasn't able to participate in the last one, sadly, (remember that time management thing we talked about?), haha, but I did manage to get something put together for this one. I just LOVED the color palette for this one. I struggled, however, with the purple, so I just went with some of the lighter colors, and added a darker one for a little contrast. This mini kit is very versatile though, I believe. The theme this time is "The Best Is Yet To Come" and I really believe it will be when you venture on through this blogtrain at Pixel Scrapper and gather all the generous goodies for all your scrapping fun and designing. What a way to start the New Year!!! Here is my contribution. I decided to go ahead and post mine early, as I'll be out of town until after the 1st. Don't forget to run on over to Pixel Scrapper to pick up the rest on Jan 1st:)!!!Oh, and don't forget to leave some love along your way!!! May God Bless you and all of your precious families this year and forever more!!!
