I haven’t put Alycia last name as in New Year’s Day she is to be married. Isn’t that a romantic start to the year….Alycia writes…

‘Serenity. The state of being calm or tranquil.

If I looked around me at the big picture of laundry needing to be done, sippy cups and toys littering the floor and a calendar full of projects and obligations; I would laugh at the ability that I could even understand what serenity even is. Add in the savage growl of a vacuum consuming all the crumbs of the day, dogs barking in glee over a spirited game of tug of war with my favorite socks and children screeching about who touched who and who has someone‚Äôs toy; I would almost believe that serenity is a myth.’ There will be more wonderful photographs from Alycia as the month rolls on…each Sunday.
