How was your Christmas??

Ours was lovely. Down-time, family, movies (unimpressed by Into the Woods), presents, our own beautiful tree, and an all-around good time.

We had a seafood boil, got Christmas Eve jammies, and I got a festive manicure (among other things).

Is your life on track?

You know how sometimes you read something, and it actually makes you think... even days later? That's how this was for me.

I like plans, and planning, and setting goals, and feeling like I'm making progress.

So, to me, it makes perfect sense to take a look at my life, really take a long-term look, and see if it's taking me where I want to go. Would I be perfectly happy with the choices I'm making and the direction in which I'm heading? What changes would I make if I were able to truly look at the big picture? What things am I unwilling to give up or unwilling to try based on my own short-sightedness... even though my long-term plan should/shouldn't include them? How many questions can I ask in one paragraph?

Anyway, I like the idea of stopping every once in a while to evaluate where my life is taking me and reevaluating where I am now based on where I want to be when I'm 80 years old.

Beautiful Words

I love to read. This is known. I love my kindle (although I resisted at first) for many reasons, one of which being that I can read more than one book at once without carrying anything extra.

For example, I'm currently reading Sphere (at my husband's recommendation) when I have down-time, Amy Poehler's book when I run on the treadmill (I'm only allowed to read it then, I need something to look forward to), and I've got the Throne of Glass series up next on the queue.

Let me know if you ever have book recommendations.
I'll read anything good entertaining.

So when I saw this, I got excited. When I read through it, I loved it.
Words can be so beautiful. <3
