life : sunshine days

Sunshine Days

hi all! i hope you all had a very nice holiday and are enjoying the final days of 2009. my inbox and i have missed you. well, i'd like to wish you all a happy new year and wishes for nothing but blue skies and sunshine days in the next decade. this calendar from 1910 says it so well 100 years later -

'many happy years be thine, full of golden hours, both their shadow and their shine, bringing forth sweet flowers.'

i've included vintage wallpaper and stamps for love, photography and each state in the usa for travel. i really hope we have all those things next year, plus health! have a safe and happy new year!

xo, cindy

ps some things we did this holiday -
  1. celebrated with our family on our turf - yay,
  2. because scott was home he cooked each night - yum,
  3. visited the doctor with scott six times, including christmas eve - ugh. his left foot is doing very well and he went back to work this week - yay for a couple of reasons ;),
  4. went to see the nutcracker and it was wonderful. i definitely want to go to the ballet, again - yay (couple images here),
  5. received some nice gifts, including a handy white balance lens - yay,
  6. listened to some new music from au revoir simone - yay,
  7. didn't do all the crafty things i wanted to - big nay, but i have time,
  8. i visited the eye doctor - mixed feelings: a $500 bill - nay, no reading glasses - yay,
  9. started to wear a hat, which i never do. the one i bought from elly makes it easy and no hat hair - yay,
  10. hmmm ... did enough things to continue our theme of creating distractions this holiday. one to go!
