UncategorizedHappy New Year! January 1, 2012It is amazing to me that after all of the anticipation for the Christmas season, it still flies by and I find myself blinking into the new year trying to figure out where the season went that I love so much. This year is a little different. It still went by incredibly fast, but I really feel like I took all of the moments and time with family in as much as possible. We had wonderful celebrations with both sides of the family and just the two of us. I’m going to talk a little bit more about our Christmas this week and share some of my favorite gifts that I gave and received. But today, I wanted to focus on the end of another Christmas and the new year coming. I have very mixed emotions this year. In a way, I am sad that Christmas is over. As much as I love the season, I think I will always feel a little remorseful when it passes. I miss the festiveness , the family, and the magic of it all. But there is something refreshing about the new year and the new start that it seems to bring. Each December, my husband Chris and I sit down and work on goals. We reflect on the previous year’s goals and how we did. Then, we set our family and personal goals for the new year. We’re sitting down to officially write them down tonight and I am so excited to get started on this new year. I’ll share some of those with you tomorrow. But for now, I am enjoying this relaxing afternoon thinking about what a wonderful year 2011 has been and things expected and surprises that 2012 might bring. What will you do in 2012?
