Hands on Atlanta

It was a "Hands On Atlanta Day" in our fine town. that means hundreds of locals were out doing good for the city. Though we weren't a part of a formal volunteer project, me and two other mom friends headed out to our own neck of the woods with our kids and picked up trash. It's amazing---we live in a nice area. We take pride in our neighborhood, yet a mile from our home within 15 minutes you can fill a bag full of trash. Anyway, it was an easy service project and it was a BEAUTIFUL day!!! we've had so much cold and dreary but today---on MLK day the sun was shining and it was a crisp 60 degree delight.

Merry New Year!!

Happy 2010!
Hope you have a year full of good health and energy loving your family, friends, and daily work.

Well--it's time to get to work on the resolutions. My 1st resolution is to WRITE down my resolutions and put them where I can refer to them often. So here goes.....

1. Practice more random acts of kindness.
2. Write more handwritten letters on pretty stationery.
3. Find the patience to have the kids help me in the kitchen.
4. Have a "real" date night with my husband 2x/month.
5. Hang the piled up pictures at my office and Grady's.
6. Recover the chairs in the den.
7 . Designate ONE notebook to be my gratitude journal and write in it daily.

I almost always have the lose weight, practice healthier living, etc. resolution, but I had to save something for Lent so I am indulging on cajun black eyed peas, corned beef, and collards. Happy New Year folks! Eat your peas today.
