December 2, 2009 ~ I first posted about our upcoming sabbatical.
Yes, it's been a busy year and a good year full of lots of great things. I was stretched in more ways than I could have imagined. Creativity abounded in our home as I become a huge advocate for others finding their creative outlet. My kids grew a little big bigger and matured a little more. As I look ahead to 2010, I'm very excited about this first season of rest. What are you looking forward to as you enter 2010?
