Exciting things happening soon!

I am bursting with excitement right now. I would love nothing better than to be able to share it right here, right now, but I can't, not just yet.... so you'll have to wait a while longer to find out my exciting news.


In the meantime, I hope you are all well and enjoying the last few days of February. Anyone got anything exciting planned for the 29th?

In the meantime I would like to share this photo taken in Johannesburg last weekend.

My sweet budding photographer 
(I just love how the horse is posing for the photograph)

Hope to be able to share my exciting news soon.

Back to school

The day has finally arrived and my girls are back at school. It has been a very long holiday (since the end of November), so both were ready to get back to see all their friends and get started with the new school year.



I can't get used to the idea that Megan is in Grade 7 and Jessica in Grade 4. Seems like just the other day they were little tots starting out on their school journey.

You have been through a lot and we weren't sure you'd make your 9th birthday. We love you and feel extremely grateful you are with us today.


Happy Birthday!

Where are you going to be?

While catching up on a couple of blogs this morning, I came across this quote  

"Time is inevitably going to pass and one year from today, you can find yourself in the exact same spot you're in now, you can find yourself further away from your goal or you can find yourself closer to your goal - so where do you want to be a year from now?"

on Karen Russell's blog. It summed up pretty much how I have been feeling over the past year. With my girls growing up and being at school for longer periods of time each day, I have found myself yearning and craving something to pour myself into. I have gone around in circles and still haven't yet been able to decide finally what that something is. A whole year has passed and I am still no closer to determining where I want to be and how I am going to get there.

Added to this I haven't been in a great place emotionally. 2011 has been a year where I have made new friends, renewed a friendship from my school days and realised that people I thought were my friends in fact were not. It has been a lonely year, one filled with great emotional turmoil and uncertainty all while trying to keep a brave face for my family.

Every year I choose one word that will be my word for the year and this year my word found me. 
This year I will choose to 
BELIEVE in myself,
BELIEVE I can do whatever I set my mind to,
BELIEVE that I will find my something,
BELIEVE that I will get my groove back,
BELIEVE that my true friends have my back,
BELIEVE that I can be the best ME there is.
BELIEVE that I can exercise more and eat less

Here's to a great year!

Surprise!


Surprise!!! 

I'm still alive and gearing up for a great year filled with a lot more blogging. I have missed you all.

Hugs

It's that time of year

It's that time of year when we all look back at what we've achieved during the past year and contemplate plans for the new year. There is something rather exciting about a fresh, new, clean slate of a new year filled with awesome possibilites. Wishing you a wonderful new year. May all your dreams and wishes come true.

Happy New Year!
