To New Beginnings!

I've had a wonderful Christmas. I was surrounded by family - the girls and their families, their in-laws, cousins and friends and it's been incredible. I couldn't have asked for more!

I'll post some holiday details w/photos later this week. Right now I'm doing some personal growth projects. I don't like New Year Resolutions because they seem trite. So I usually set out a goal late December.

I have several. I've upped the intensity of my training for the charity walk in June. My eating is back on track after too much of everything. I did very well staying away from the treats. I'm setting up some stitching goals. I found that I do my best work when I'm challenged...if I have all year, I take all year! lol

Tonight, DH and I will ring in the New Year quietly. We have a lovely dinner for 2 planned, perhaps a toasty fire and a game of our favorite -SCRABBLE!

I'd like to extend my heartfelt gratitude to all who have been there for me, through the good, the bad and the somewhat ugly. Through your strength and support I know I can do what I set my mind on. I have an inner peace that says I'm okay and I will continue to be okay.

Here's to loving families, good health and great friends!

Love Life
Engage in it
Give it all you've got!
