Blog Design Giveaway!

I have to admit, I haven't put much effort into the design of this blog. Visually, it needs a lot of work. I put effort and heart into the posts I write here, and I should put just as much effort into make sure that this place is also pleasing to the eyes.

I read about a giveaway for a blog design and decided to see if I could win. Unfortunately, I am not very savvy about web design. I can never seem to remember html codes for things and what I do learn about html, java and css just gets read and then forgotten. So I can use all the help I can get!lo

You can have the chance at winning a blog redesign too though!

Visual Serendipity is having a blog design giveaway (worth $250)! Head on over to her site for details of the giveaway.

Reaching For The Stars in 2011

My family's motto last year was "The Courage To Dream." It's still our motto, because it is one that has worked well for us and it is something I believe in, but, just so we don't sound repetitive, I've re-worded it for this year. This year, we are reaching for the stars.

I believe that everything we hope for and wish for is possible, if we are willing to work towards it. I want my children to believe this too. I strive to show them, through my example, that believing in themselves and in their ability to do great things can help them to achieve their dreams.

I also want them to know that it is possible for each of them to have an effect on the world around them. They, individually, each have the power to create change in the world around them and to shape the world more to their liking.

My children all have beautiful, intelligent, creative and loving souls. They constantly amaze me with their kindness, their wit, their hearts, and their unique and powerful imaginations.

If anyone can change the world and make it a better place, these kids will be the ones to do it!

Happy New Year!
