Here's to Simplicity in the New Year!

I thought I'd dig into the New Decade with my theme word for the year. If you read many blogs, you most likely have seen posts about choosing a theme word to focus on in the upcoming year. Ali Edwards started choosing a word on her blog and the idea has kind of caught on with other bloggers that I read regularly like Pat Sloan.

When looking over the pictures that I have taken in 2009, the ones that made me smile,

the ones where I just took a breath and relaxed,

were of simple things around me, of the people and things in my life that I love.


When I keep things simple, I can more easily see all of the blessings in my life, so that is my word, the thing that I will strive for in 2010. Amidst all of the daily chores, and things that just cry for my attention and can throw me so easily off course, I will try to focus each day on Simplicity. ...2010 seems more doable already :)

Here's wishing you all a very Happy New Year!

Enjoy the day!

~ Dawn

Hi Dawn,

I just stopped by to say hello since you chose simplicity and my word is simplify in the 2010 word challenge. One day at a time, so here's to a simple quilted life.

Happy New Year
