Long time no see, Ladies. I haven't been here since "118." Well, actually
I have. I come almost everyday and catch up on the rest of you. I wish I
could have stuck with it but to no avail. I contemplating giving 2010 a try
but I think I am a better follower. I've been watching all of your ups and
downs and good and bad and meetings and greetings. Thanks for sharing with
me and thank you for letting me share what little I could with you.
Best wishes to you all and know that I will be keeping up with you this time
around and maybe I will join up again next time.
ok so cheat from yesterday but i had to! We had a full on tea party! With
eat me cakes, and drink me bottles of amazing port. Scones, little
sandwiches.. and oversize croquet course! i mean really! Tana really outdid
herself with this one for sure! She rules! I love her, her place, and all my
friends! what a great time!!
My friend from Norway is visiting! I met her in NZ in 04, then in the USA,
then in Australia, then when i was living in germany i went to spend the
weekend with her in oslo.. now on her way to Hawaii with her mom she stopped
by to see me! I love meeting people and staying in touch.. the world of
computers and facebook..
ok same party.. but it is past 12 so it counts for the next day! I used a
tripod! I never really did before. taking photos at night is fun! I wish i
actually knew how to work my camera, i bet they would have come out better.
But i had this awesome photo shoot with everyone who was still there. What a
blast. This is shelley.. love her!
Off to another show.. in rockstar status! We rented a 15 person van and had
one of those epic nights. One more of those nights where i went "really?
this is my life! i am sooo lucky!!" This is jeffro.. i met him on jamcruise.
We spent tons of time together last weekend. He is really just one of those
people that I feel like i have known my whole life. And well those eyes are

I can't believe I actually stuck with this, if only I could stick to a diet
or workout for a full year!
I am so glad that I was involved with this project. I have enjoyed being a
part of it and looking at things with a new eye. I just wish I had more
time to leave comments on everyones picture and I regret not getting to
"know" eveyone a little bit better.
I NEVER would have thought my last picture of the year would be with my
child. It has been an eventful year for me and I am glad you were all a
part of it. Thank you for being a part of my life for the past year.
I will be checking the new site everyday and hopefully can do this again.
Thank you Sarah :)
Have a great year everyone!
Ending on a shitty day at work. Understaffed and overtasked. Undersexed
and overweight. Underpaid and over tired. Realized that as I submitted
these last few days, there's an extra cheat in there somewhere… think I
missed photos on Wednesday… oi. Even with a calendar I still mess it up
lol! Well there's a new year on the horizon, I'll get it right next time.
Hey Chickies! (I realize these are roosters btw). I was hoping for something
gorgeous and eloquent for the last day of Year 2. It ain't gonna happen. I'm
stressed out, disorganized and sick. It looks like my house has exploded in
baby stuff and paperwork. I know it's only going to get worse.
Love you all! See ya tomorrow on 3.0!
365 days.... over 3 continents, 8 countries, 6 states, countless
festivals, shows and parties. I have made more amazing friends, became even
closer with the ones I had. I became an Auntie for the first time! I lost
45lbs! and counting... 15 to go! I realized that I am so much better single!
And that is ok.. that being comfortable with myself, happy, and living my
dreams is more important than anything else. I will find that perfect person
when the time is right, and until then I am happier then I have ever been
before. I have made more leaps and bounds in my personal growth this year
than any year before.. I can feel and see the changes within me. I am beyond
thankful! I am so happy it was all going on during a year that i was photo
blogging.. Thank you sarah for all your hard work! Thank you ladies for all
your amazing comments, and support.. This really has been an amazing
experience, and my life as always is so much better when it is shared!!
Next year.. will be even better than the last.... so much love and light to

An ending and a beginning.
The last night of summer vacation. School begins tomorrow.
The last day of Envisage 2. Envisage 3 begins tomorrow.
The last time we start a new school year. Senior year begins tomorrow.
Here come the endings and beginnings.
There are not enough words to express my gratitude to all of you for your
support and sisterhood over the past year. Most of all thanks to Sarah who
brought us all together in the first place. It has been an honor to
participate here and to get to know you ladies.
That darn song is going through my head again...Closing time, every new
beginning comes from some other beginning's end.

But she's got the urge for going and I guess she'll have to go" - Joni
She was having a hard time falling asleep tonight and came to me where I was
by the computer. She said that she was sad, because time was going by too
fast. I know how she feels.
I could so easily have broken this year, at times I felt like I had cracked into a thousand pieces. I was more afraid this year than I think I have ever been before. There are so many reasons I did not break apart and lie in a puddle on the floor, one of them is Envisage, all of you. Each and every one of you held me up when I felt like sinking.
I wanted to create a space for women to feel supported, accepted and loved. I think we have proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that I have succeeded, we have all succeeded.
You women helped save my life this year, I am eternally fucking grateful.
i started the year with a picture of my incredible little lady clara and her
very first pigtail... i'm ending the year with that same incredible little
lady and her brand new baby sister. it's hard to believe how much has
happened over the past year- then, i had two children, a husband who was
deployed, and i was living with my mother in new jersey. now, i have 3
beautiful babies and get to go to sleep beside the love of my life every
single night in our lovely home in north carolina. life is good... no,
scratch that. life is GRAND! i can honestly say that, right now, i am the
happiest i've ever been in my life. i know there will be a million more ups
and downs, but if i can hold onto the memories of a time this wonderful, i'm
hopeful i can make it through the roller coaster of life. i am so glad i
decided to participate in this project and am looking forward to what the
next year of envisage brings. thank you ladies for letting me peek into
your lives and being there with a supportive comment when i needed one the
most. you are awesome... and sarah, thank you so much for creating this
outlet- i know i'm not alone in thinking that you are pretty damn FANTASMIC!
bye bye 2009 and hello envisage2010!
Before I explain the picture, let me just say, holy crap tomorrow is our
last day and that makes me feel sad, happy, relieved...a plethora of
emotions. That said, here's a dog in doggie heaven. Nathan and I went to
Social Circle, Georgia tonight for auction business. Social Circle
is about an hour's lovely drive through the country and I mean
country....like farms and little towns kind of country. The couple that we
visited, Bo and Angela, have an incredible farm. This picture shows just a
small part of their property, the backyard that is fenced in for their 4
dogs. Here's one of them smiling for the camera. See the little white
house with the red doggie bone over the door? Yes, that is the dog house.
Yes, it is lighted, heated and air conditioned (eat your heart out
JackBastard). I had a hard time deciding which picture to use because of
all the animals (I've posted the rest on Facebook if you are interested).
Not sure how many acres they have, but they had a ton of cows, three
donkeys, goats, guinea hens, chickens, turkeys, bunnies, dogs, ducks,
horses, and a pond full of fish. It was beautiful, serene, peaceful. And
to top it off, they are really nice people. Just good, kind, down to earth,

Lilith has taken an interest in this project over the last year and wanted
to be in on this upcoming year. Since she is only 11, I turned her down but
see no problem with her doing it herself. She now has her own little blog,
under mine, to post her pictures for the next year. We will see how she
