A New Year

As always, I am delinquent in my blogging, but in all fairness work (the time when I usually do my blogging) has become quite busy and it seems like it's 5 o'clock before I know it, just about every day. Anyway, I thought I'd do a quick update about a few things on my mind lately.

First of all, I am so thankful for my life. I have a wonderful husband and extended family (which has grown this last year) as well as friends who love and support me and I have a job that I enjoy which challenges me and pushes me to grow. Life is busy with Eddie being in school, both of us working full time, and still trying to find time to spend together and with other friends, but we are so fortunate to have shelter and food and love. We truly are blessed.

I've been appreciating the little things lately and the thing that keeps being put on my heart is the beauty of Seattle. I seriously do not think there is a more picturesque city and I get to see it every day! The perk of living a bit outside of the city is that when I drive in I am able to see it's glory. Driving to work on the viaduct on a clear day is probably one of my most favorite ways to start the day. To the right I get to see the city and to the left are the amazing snow capped Olympic Mountains! Especially during the dark mornings, it brightens my day. No matter how bad traffic is or how cold I am, the beauty of it all makes me sit in awe as I drive into town. I love how the dark sky makes everything look so dramatic. I'm so appreciative for these views and the fact that I get to enjoy it so freely.

I didn't take these pictures, but they are glimpses of what I get to enjoy. I hope you enjoy them as well!
