Welcome 2012!

Last night, Steve and I rang in the New Year along with Greenland at 9:00 p.m. CST. 2011 was filled with so much to be grateful for. The birth of our son; the sometimes painful, but always beautiful growth of our family and us as parents and individuals; learning to set goals, but also to gracefully release them if necessary; and taking steps on our never-ending journey to live peacefully and joyfully in each moment.

Here's to 2012. May it be filled with hopes and dreams. First steps and first words. Laughter, tears, tingling euphoria, aching hearts, and everything else that comes with fully living.


  1. Happy New Year to you and your family!

  2. Happy New Year to you, Silas & Steve~



  3. The timing of your New Year's celebration sounds much like ours ;) Your recap of 2011 beautifully sums up the journey of new-parenthood.
