That's what I got! A glimpse into his world this day. HIS first glimpse of the new year's snow left him speechless. His eyes all a gaze and heart melting. Ah, I'm so in love with this little soul. Light surrounds me when I'm with him, when I see his world. Take a moment today, tomorrow, everyday, and be still for a moment and let the light surround YOU. May it come from a child, a friend, lover, or stranger.
... oh, and Finn says to make lots of snow angels too :)



I leave the big question mark in the title as I have MANY resolutions for this spectacular year ahead, and they are much more important than this one. Although, if you were to look in on my life right now, you would think that learning to knit was #1. I'm determined to learn all I can about knitting. I'm obsessed! Just as I feel the desire to learn to make some of the simplest things in life like bread, soap, lip gloss, deodorant, the list goes on. I feel the desire to learn all I can about knitting. There's something about making and creating simple objects that we use or consume every day. I must say it's humbling and very rewarding.

Well, this is my first knitting project. Not sure what it is or what it's going to be, but I'm just so pleased that I've learned the basics so far and thought I would share with you. Happy New Year to everyone! I hope you're all eager to learn something new this year. Whether it be a new craft, a new recipe, or getting to know your child better, please indulge yourself and become aware of something other than you.

Oh, I forgot to mention...
the picture on the far right is Finn's display of my knitting. He stopped playing with his trains and decided that my display for the picture was lacking, so he spruced it up on one of his vintage chairs and told me to "take picture."

Totally brightened my day!
