One Little Word: Blog Hop

Welcome to May and the One Little Word Blog Hop!

Thanks to Margie for hosting.  You should have arrived from Tere's blog, but if not, you can always check out all of the blogs below.

I can't believe how quickly the first four months of the year have passed.  It is sheer craziness.

This month, in the One Little Word class, Ali encouraged participants to write a letter to ourselves (or our future selves).  I did write one at futureme.org.  I was silly not to think about saving the message, but since I can't go back and see it (it will be emailed to me in a year), I decided to jot down some thoughts and include it in a digital scrapbook layout of sorts with a similar letter to myself.  I still haven't gotten around to creating a more traditional book like Ali does, but if I wait to do that, I'll never get it done.  :)  So digi it is!

It was good to sit down and think about my word and where it is taking me and/or where I hope to be next year.  I took the picture with my phone a couple of nights ago because I hadn't had a picture of me in my new glasses.  I only wear them at night, but I think they are kind of fun.

Have you ever written yourself a letter to be opened in the future?  If not, you might want to try it.  It is kind of a fun thing to take on, and I'm sure it will be even more fun to read next year.  :)

That is all I have for now, next up is Brighton.
