God, grant me the serenity
to accept the things I cannot change;
courage to change the things I can,
and wisdom to know the difference.
Living one day at a time;
Enjoying one moment at a time;
Accepting hardships as the pathway to peace
Taking, as He did, this sinful world
As it is, not as I would have it;
Trusting that He will make things all right
If I surrender to His will;
That I may be reasonably happy in this life
And supremely happy with Him
Forever in the next.
It's best to start off a new year fresh and what's fresher than new clothing! For that fresh start, I picked out gorgeous feminine and flirty white dresses. These dresses have a minimalist appeal but are still fun and sexy.
Now for the shoes, I'm not bold enough to pull off animal print anything but the CL pumps above would be perfect with a simple white dress. The gold pumps above by L.A.M.B. would also look gorgeous with a short white dress. A long dress would make you look like you stepped out of a Greek myth. Hmmm...what to spend my holiday gift cards on...what a conundrum...

I started the year off with a surgery. My third surgery for my left arm. Then it was off to a "vacation" in the Philippines for two weeks. I wouldn't really call it a vacation hence the quotes. Two of the most hectic weeks were spent there shuttling off from one part of the country to another. The best part of that vacation was seeing my family for the first time in about 11 years. I also enjoyed the mini-vacation in Hong Kong.
Back to work, chaos ensued with a new controller at the helm of the accounting department. I ignored it and went on two mini trips, one to San Francisco and another to Las Vegas. Chaos at work continued with people leaving and people getting laid off. Mid-year was tough. The company wasn't doing to hot in a real estate market that was shaky. And then there was the break-up. I can't really say that I'm surprised that it happened. I was just surprised at how fast it happened.
Everything this year happened so fast. It's as if this year went by in a blink of an eye and everything is still a blur. I can't believe in a few hours it'll be a new year. As uneventful and partially disappointing 2007 has been for me, I'm still grateful that I have such great friends and family as my support system.
I'm kinda looking forward to 2008. New beginning, a fresh start. Here's to hoping that 2008 has great things on store for me. ;)

There's nothing more comforting than a nice cup of hot chocolate on those cold, cold days of winter. I especially love the really rich ones topped with marshmallows or with a hint of spice. Yum!
I love Christmas tree ornaments and this sassy one from Anthropologie is perfect for the fashionista's tree. Anthropologie has a bunch of other hand-made ornaments that are just as cute as this one. Unfortunately, their stock is running low so hurry to the closest Anthropologie to grab one for you tree. They're currently on sale as well!
The holiday season wouldn't be complete if we don't hear "All I Want for Christmas Is You" on the radio. I actually have the CD and I play it every morning on the drive to work. For some reason, this CD always puts a smile on my face. Now it doesn't work year-round...only in December.
My favorite holiday movie...Love Actually! I've seen this movie tons of times and still everytime I watch it, it manages to tug on my heart strings. Beautifully made with such an awesome cast, this movie is not just for the holiday season (I can watch it anytime of the year) although it certainly is appropriate.

As bleak as that may sound, these thoughts are not new to me. Still they remain unanswered. I am still searching for answers, still searching for truths. What does life have to offer? Is there solace in death? So many unanswered questions are burning in my brain...in my heart.
When you really think about it, in the grand scheme of things, what we do is so minute. What we do, what we think, what we have to say...does it really make a difference?
