Fresh Start

December 30th

Kelli and Roscoe

This sweet boy is one of the many babies born in 2007 who I fell head over heels for. Roscoe William lives in LA and is one of many I hope will one day call me “auntie.” His mother and I have been close since we were girls. His father is a new friend, who I equally adore.
The innocence of a baby symbolizing the new year is simply perfect. You may not believe in resolutions or the hype we’re marketed this time of year, but I certainly believe in the power of a fresh start. It gives me new energy to believe in the many dreams I’m chasing after. I wish for us all, in 2008, that we may grasp those resolutions with both hands, pull them close, and refuse to let go until we’re covered head to toe with the abundant joy we’re seeking.
In other words, 2008 is going to rock.

{In the meantime, I’m headed to Mexico to start get la fiesta started. Hasta luego, amigos!}
