Frosty, frigid morning...awww the days are getting longer, though

Good day...thanks for stopping by my blog. As you can see, it's been a very, very long time since I've posted anything. I'm going to try and do better with this. A

As I sit here, contemplating the work day, I'm listening to bits and pieces of the news...including the weather forecast. It's a cold one out there and I'm so grateful to have a warm home. How did the early settlers or Native Americans handle this kind of weather? I'm inpsired by their ingenuity, their strength, wisdom and ability to overcome so many obstacles and hardships. Amazing when you really think about it.

We rented the movie, The Proposal, last evening and I just love Sandra Bullock. She's such a great actress. It's nice to be able to sit down with your family and watch a show without getting embarrased or uncomfortable because of language or inappropriate content. I highly recommend it. AND, the setting...Alaska and the home featured in the movie are phenominal. Inspired by the beauty of the landscape, Inspired by the warm and cozy home, Inspired to create my own 'Alaska'.

Today, as the new year quickly makes it's way into the future, I'm excited about what this year will bring. 'Optimistic' is a word that I keep hearing and I find myself using it quite regularly, as well. There is just something in the air. An upbeat, 'can do' attitude. A fresh approach to how people are looking at their life, their world. I'm glad I'm part of that group...

What inspires you? What is it that makes your heart skip a beat, gets you excited about living, dreaming, being? In this new year, I hope you find what it is that makes your heart sing, makes getting up and getting going worth your effort, keeps you going and dreaming and living...what inspires you?
