2011 Resolutions

I always make New Year's Resolutions early in January, and by this time in February I have almost forgotten what they were! This year I am going on the record, with photos to prove it, that I have already made some decisions that support my Promises to Jean, for 2011.

1. MORE TIME TO ENJOY FRIENDS


Baby Shower for Gloria Wong Tritasavit! Friends Nancy Liu Chin, Jubilee Lau, Gloria and Baby Taylor Tritasavit, soon to arrive, Bev Yip, and Lisa Lefkowitz

Bridgette, Jubilee's daughter, John Woods and Jubilee at Gloria's shower.



Janece Shelloe, myself and Ellie Platis...a reunion at the Claremont Resort and Spa!

2. MORE TIME DOING SPECIAL THINGS WITH MY UNCLE JIMMY!

Uncle Jimmy with his friend the neighborhood milkman, Michal, at Jimmy's 92nd birthday party at my house. Michal sees Jimmy every day walking to get his coffee at the local coffee shop and they have struck up a strong friendship, through sign language and jokes, since Jimmy is totally deaf.


Taking Jimmy to the Italian Zuppe Family Circus was a special treat; the son and grandson of the owners of the Zuppe family connected with Jimmy in the audience because Jimmy was so enthusiastic about the slapstick humor and amazing acrobatics of Arnoldi Zuppe and his 1 year old son.

3. MORE TIME TO ENJOY MY HUSBAND JEFF AND STRENGTHEN OUR MARRIAGE.


We took a 3 day trip to Capitola recently to hike, relax, and reconnect with each other; it was great to slow down and enjoy the simple things we don't always make time for in our busy lives. I am so thankful for our 30 years of marriage; our solid faith in God and wacky sense of humor have sustained and encouraged all along the way!


The rainbow was a bonus...how could we complain about a rainy weekend when you can only see rainbows at those times?!

1. MORE TIME FOR MY GARDEN!

I found my photo of a Spring arrangement I made completely from flowers in my garden; seeing this bouquet encouraged me to get out and rediscover my garden and care for the 35 Roses, mounds of Feverfew, Forget me Nots and other perennials which are all still in my garden, just waiting for attention!
A few weeks ago Jeff and I weeded, pruned, and put wonderful smelly mulch all around my flower beds, just before the big rains hit--perfect timing! Last year I was too busy to do any of this! The floral results of my gardening care and the abundance of rain should be spectacular! Stay tuned for 2011 bouquets on my blog!



So I have set a precedent, and now I must keep up with my resolutions. Along with caring for my beloved wedding clients, I will also spend time with friends, family and in my garden!
