{twenty ten} + ten

The year is {twenty ten} and ten days old already!    Happy New Year!!

Today is "officially" my first day back into regular routine. I've had the most wonderful 4 weeks off of relaxing, rejuvenating and readying myself for this new year.

Journaling my 25 Days to Christmas album is almost done, it just needs to be bound somehow. Although I didn't keep up on a daily basis I have completed it and I *love* it. Once again the importance of journaling or capturing the memories has been impressed on my heart. On 8th December I didn't take a photo for the day, I also didn't write anything down. And 3 weeks later... I could not remember what I had done on that day. Obviously it wasn't anything significantly "important", but it was still a day I had wanted to capture. So again... whether you're creating a layout, making a mini book, taking a photo a day, I want to encourage you to write it down... you are NOT going to remember.

And speaking of writing it down... I've had a long time to think about my "Word" for 2010. Last year my word "balance" captured where I was at, going into that new year, a year of becoming a mother for the first time and the knowledge that I'd have to be doing many a balancing trick with the amount of stuff I do!

This year I have chosen nurture, a gentle reminder to myself, for where I am at once again and what I'd like to do.

1. care for and encourage the growth or development of
2. cherish - a hope, belief, or ambition
1. the process of caring for and encouraging the growth or development of someone or something

Nurturing my precious baby, nurturing relationships and nurturing the time I spend every day.

{twenty ten} also brings about my promised NEW *thing*. So please come back tomorrow and check it ALL out.

Enjoy today for what it is. Nurture every minute (and capture the memories!)

My word for 2010 is 'complete'. I have so many incomplete projects and tasks lying around. Hopefully I'lll find the time and energy to get to cross them off my many lists!
