Once in a Blue Moon

Hello! I'm back, and I hope you all had a lovely Christmas, just as I did. Tonight is New Year's Eve, and it's even more of a special event than just that for several reasons. Not only is it a full moon, but it is a "blue moon," and there will be a lunar eclipse as well... all on the eve of a brand new decade! To me, this signifies a rare and special event, one that I will not take for granted.

A full moon is supposed to be a time for taking action and giving thanks, while a blue moon is good for setting new goals for yourself, no matter how lofty they are. Most of us make New Years resolutions anyway, so what better time to make wishes for the upcoming year than tonight under the strong energy and silver light of the moon? I plan on driving to my hometown's beach and sitting in the sand with a friend, basking in the beautiful light of the evening and contemplating the past year and future. Here are some of the wishes I have in mind to begin 2010 with:

- To be given a sign for what I should pursue in my future, whether it is art, filmmaking, journalism, or something entirely different.
- To be put on the proper path towards whatever career is best for me and would make me happy.
- To befriend new, kind and sincere people.
- To be surrounded with positivity and joy in my love life and life in general.
- To excel in school and enjoy the process of learning without being stressed out.
- To be given time to live and eat more healthily.
- For good luck and wonderful opportunities to surround my friends, family, and I.

Do you have any New Year's resolutions or wishes? Any special plans? Please share them with me... I am so curious! I can't wait to see what this new decade will bring, but it's crazy how fast the past one has gone by. Anyways, I hope you all have a meaningful New Year's Eve and a love-filled and prosperous year to come! I will be back up at school soon (which makes me sad because I love being home in Florida at the beach) and writing regular blog posts again (which makes me smile).

                    Until then, au revoir!

Oh, aren't the moon pictures amazing? Created by a Russian designer. Find more pictures at Your Personal Moon.


  1. I had no idea a full moon is a time for giving thanks! I must be living under full moon all the time lately :)

    Love your resolutions! I'm sure if you can make all of them happen.

    The moon pictures ARE amazing! Yay for my fellow Russian :)

    HAPPY NEW YEAR Caylee!!!

  2. I’ve decided today to visit a few people I’ve never met before. Just stopping by to say Happy New Year!!

  3. Hey darlin'!
    I've missed your blog - and what a lovely post to come back to!
    At midnight NYE, instead of yelling out happy new year, we all yelled out one thing we wished for more of this year.
    It was lovely.
    I hope that yours was too and all of your dreams come true and then some.

  4. I was so excited to hear it was a blue moon as well! I'm very into that sort of thing. It's gonna be an exceptional year...I can just feel it :) Happy New Year Caylee. Hope you had a lovely celebration! xoxo

  5. the blue moon is so nice to look at night. Really love it!

  6. Hope you all had a Happy New Year too! Good luck with achieving all of your wishes and following through with your resolutions!

    Barry - Thanks for stopping by, I really appreciate it!

    Jodes - That is the cutest idea! I'll have to do that next year :)

    Thank you all for the comments xoxo

  7. you have such a beautiful blog! a blue moon. wow. definately following! xox

  8. Your blog is fantastic, I'd love to trade links with you!
    I have so many resolutions and goals for this new decade (it's odd saying that, isn't it?)that I'm already afraid I won't stick to them! One of my biggest and most challenging goals is to go meat-free with my diet. Let's hope it works :)
    Just by scanning your blog, I think Journalism would be a perfect fit for you. It's my major in school, and I'm absolutely loving it.
    By the way, I live in Georgia too and I'm going to visit at friend at UGA in Athens tomorrow, crazy! :)


  9. Lindsay, thank you so much! Trading links with you would be great.

    I completely understand how you may be worried about not sticking to your meat-free diet. I tried to be a vegetarian for 6 months last year, but I cheated and eventually took up eating meat again! Good luck with it; I'm absolutely sure you can go through with your resolution if you really try. :)

    That's so funny that you're going to be in Athens tomorrow! It's going to be freeeeezing. Hope you have fun though! What part of Georgia do you live in?

  10. Alrighty, I'm adding your link to my page!
    I went meat-free last year for 3 months after reading Skinny Bitch (great book, despite the title hah!) but ended up caving into Chick-Fil-A. What a shame, but it's just so good!
    Athens was a blast, I loved it! I live in Peachtree City, which is about 45 minutes south of Metro Atlanta :)
