Wow! December felt like a whirlwind, mostly in a good, sparkly, joy-filled kind of way. These photos are such a random sampling. I am grateful and exhausted and feel like I could hibernate right through January.
My one-word intention for 2015 is attune, as in (1) to become receptive or aware and (2) to bring into accord or harmony. To me, this word carries a reminder of mindfulness in my attention and my actions.
Happy New Year, friends!
