a year's end.

a new year's
chance to begin.
This past year has filled all of us with memories. It is all of our joys, griefs, good times and bad times, that has brought us into this moment for another year, another beginning. Yes, many things might stay the same or dramatic changes will be in store for us, yet one thing will definately remain. We all share in this search for happiness, peace, and fullfilment. More importantly, as some of us might think we have reached all of our goals, it simply cannot be true. Life does not have a finish line. Many of us do believe that death is or isn't that finish line, but we can all make sure we do completely live until that moment comes when we are we are facing it.

I feel that 2009 has not been easy for many of us and that is okay, because a new year does give us some hope and of course, opportunity.

And so, a few last words to share that have meant so much to me this year:

  • Live well, breathe deep, and keep on going.
  • Respect is the greatest currency.
  • This moment is your life.
  • A great idea, backed by great passion, will make a difference.
  • And in the end, it's not the years in your life that count; it's the life in your years.

From all of us at Hovey Lee, we wish you a very healthy, peaceful and joyous new year.

"to the attentive eye, each moment of the year has its own beauty,

and in the same field, it beholds, every hour,

a picture which was never seen before

and which will never be seen again."

Twenty Four Things..

Well I know they say its 24 days of Christmas.
THE 24 things I LOVE MOST.

(and in no particular order)
1. Tyler, my brother: who inspires me every day and I without doubt couldn't live without.

2. Luc, otis & lola : my laughter stems from their souls. My most loyal companions that I have yet to love thus far.

3.the teachers I have had in my life: and I meet new ones every day.
4.the way the day looks once rain is over: the wind on my nose.
5. The few friends that continue to support me: and consistantly surprise me in their unconditional love for me as family. you know who you are.
6. A crescent moon: it's quite beautiful.
7. The way words can flow like the grand canyon: rivers and waves of emotion; unkept.

8. My best friend and her children: because they have become a part of me.
9. Butterflies in your stomache: we never really know what will happen next.
10. Girlfriends and memories: because childhood will never fully leave any of us.

11. Jacuzzi time in the rain: nothing has ever felt so refreshing.
12. Jog-a-thons: big pops and no class; no brainer.
13. Falling down: because when I'm up, I'm up.

14. Accomplishing my dream of running my own retail store... and at 20 years of age: hey that's just a load off my back.

15. Setting new sites: furthering my horizons: fall is my favorite season, new york is my favorite state.
16. Learning to never settle: the guy will get it when he's eatin your dust.
17. Heavy and I mean heavy, music: no need to say more.
18. Roadtrips with friends: the desert is a beautiful thing through the backseat window at night.

19. Collecting things I cherish: as I go; along the way I say...
20. Being girly: never ceases to jumpstart a little confidence..

21. A long long drive down PCH: its my favorite way to vent.

22. Sleeping by the ocean, like camping on birthdays when we were just kids: there is nothing like dreaming by the sea of mystery.
23. Sharing good times with the people I love most: it's only going to get better and bumpier.

24. the inspiration i get from Hovey Lee and her magical creativity with precious stones and recycled metals; there is beauty in everything.
