what's your wish




happy 2008! another new year, another fresh start. i love this time when everyone is making their new years goals. i too am thinking about my intentions for this new year. as i am not a huge fan of resolutions because they often set us up for disappoointment, i am taking time to dwell in the possibilities of my wishes for the coming year. here are some of mine for 2008...

*make more frequent connections with friends and family
