Welcome to 2008

Presenting the year’s first blog entry.

I make lists every year. I don’t call them resolutions, I call them wish lists. I have high hopes that 2008 will be even better than 2007 was (and 2007 was pretty sweet). Last night as the girls and my husband rang in the new year I had a sense of purpose, a sense of solid footing of what my direction will be this year.

For any of you blog stalkers, something that has been in the works for a long time will come to fruition this year – earlier rather than later! I am so excited to able to share the news with you…but not quite yet. I’m not ready to shed light on the subject just yet. I promise you though, you will see the light soon. 🙂

(Evil, I know, making you wait like this. I promise it will be worthwhile and fun and perhaps a bit educational (hint hint)).

Coming up this month, I will premiere images for my blog readers from my new camera. Yes, I feel like the ultimate traitor and dove into the Nikon pool with the purchase of the D3. More on that later tho.

(Gosh, I’m the ultimate in cruel these days, aren’t I?)



If you haven’t seen the YEAR IN REVIEW 2007 slideshow, please feel free to click on the link and do so. I enjoyed 2007 so much that I go and look @ the slideshow once daily. It is so wonderful to remember the smiling faces, the happy families and the WARM WEATHER! Ahhh, the warm weather. Speaking of… DH and I talked about our upcoming trip (around spring break) to Destin. I simply cannot wait! We hadn’t been there in almost 3 years and truly, I think I’m going through withdrawls. If you’ve never been to the panhandle of Florida, you simply must look into going at some point. Destin is my perfect vacation spot, enough nature to satisfy that side of me, with a side of great shopping and good food. The softest sand beaches known to mankind (or at least to Marmalade & Co.) and beautiful emerald colored ocean. Simply paradise.


So there you have it. Here’s my list for 2008. How many do you think I can get crossed off before 12/31/2008? 365 days and counting (since day #1 is already almost gone….)


Thanks for dropping in. I send all my blog peeps a happy and relaxed 2008 lined with many successes and many wonderful things!

xoxo, Mare
