Wishing you all a very happy new year!  In 2014, take time to notice the little things.  Slow down.  Love more.  Be more open.  Give more.  Learn more.  Teach more.  Listen more.  If you have a child, try to make this the most magical and best year of their life so far, and show them how they can make it a better year for others.  Don't forget who you are ~ the things you used to love, the places you want to see (near or far), the books you want to read, the sport you've always wanted to try, the class you've always wanted to take, the furniture you've always wanted to build (just me?).  Go outside more.  Breathe in air scented with pine or plumeria or salt as often as you can.  Get your toes cold in the snow or hot in the sand as often as you can.  Adventure with your family.  Tell them you love them often; show them you love them often.  Be gracious, be kind.  Be grateful.  Be love.  Be you.

Thank you for being here.  See you in 2014!  ♥

Hey Lori, I thought I had your email address, but I can't find it if I do. I am, as always, drooling over your photos (and view of the world). My friends and I are trying to start a little parent organized child led outdoor learning group. I would love to pick your brain about places we could go (we're going to be an all weather group) until we have a permanent meeting place. Let me know if you have time to chat about it (by email, in person, either way!).
