Every January 1 try to make a silly little personal goal...
not necessarily a resolution, but something I can try to do for the year.
In 2009 I did a project 365.
I took a picture every day of the year and journaled about my day.
It was a pain... but I actually did it!
In January 2010 I decided I was going to try to read 52 books...or a book a week.
I am a reader, so this wasn't really moving Heaven and Earth to get it done...
just a little more effort and counting had to be done.
I did it!
Actually, I read 54 books.
A total of 21,221 pages.
This is something that is just little, and quite silly.
But I accomplished it!
My favorite book you ask?
Well... I read a lot of books and found some real gems!
But, Without a doubt... my favorite book of the year would have to be
GONE WITH THE WIND by Margaret Mitchell.
I had never read the book and only seen parts of the movie.
It was an amazing book and an okay movie.
I loved the characters!
If I were crazy enough to have another baby and it was a girl... Scarlett would be her name.
Rhett? What a man's man! Loved him too!
I especially loved the whole Southern Cultural Experience.
The history was amazing!
This is one book that everyone should read in their lifetime!
I logged all the books I read on Goodreads and have my 2010 book shelf on my sidebar.
I don't know if I will read as many books this year... it's not my 2011 goal.
I will still read quite a bit, but I'm just not worried about a number.
Do you like to read... What is the best book you read in 2010 ( or ever...)?
Do Share!

I am done pondering!

I know... I'm late!
I have been pondering about how I could write about my holidays.
I wanted to express how much fun we had!
Maybe show all the great pictures that I forgot to take...OOPs!
Give my deepest thoughts and perspective on hitting one of life's milestones.
I really wanted to rival all the amazing blog posts that I have been reading...
Using beautiful words to create a holiday picture.
I have pondered and pondered...
It has prevented me from writing anything at all.
I am suffering from writer's block and out of timeness.
My holidays were great!
F'in great in fact...
It included fun, friends, family and FOOD!
I have got a few things I really want to write about, but instead of pondering...
I am just going to get back into the swing of my blog.
I posted...finally!
It wasn't amazing... it wasn't fancy... it wasn't eloquent...
But I broke the ice and it is done!
