"The dusty road that's ahead will be my board and my bed..."

There are only 45 minutes left in this year, 2010.

My sweet baby Boy, who has spent his first full year with us, is tucked into his bed after a fun (early) New Year's Eve celebration with his cousins!

It's been an amazing year- the best year of my life! Becoming a mother is the most wonderful, exciting, challenging journey I have ever been on, and I can't wait to see what the new year has in store for me!

I already know how lucky I am. I have a beautiful, funny, charismatic, sassy, healthy son. I have a husband who sees all my light and loves my dark, as our wedding song said. I have the most loyal, hilarious, sympathetic, wonderful friends in the world. I have a close, crazy, noisy, nurturing family. I wish all of them nothing but the best and most outstanding of New Years blessings!

For them, I want to be better. A better wife, a better Mama, a better human. I want to understand my worth and make sure all of the people I love know theirs. I want to set the best example possible for my son.

I somehow feel like I am about to start a road trip, and have miles and miles of winding, uncharted road ahead of me.

2011. Let's ride.

Ooh, can I share your goal of understanding your own worth? What a great resolution!

Best of luck on your road trip!! I would like to provide cannisters of nitrous oxide for those moments when you feel like you're running out of gas!
