Happy New Year

Looking Ahead

2016 was a very good year – it was the year we had a son, became a family of four and actually survived to tell the tale! We even took a week-long vacation which was great. I had some fears about handling two kids but so far they’ve all been pretty unfounded!
I’m really looking forward to the new year – watching my kids learn new things each day is so exciting. But of course, I’m also looking forward to making strides for myself too. This year I would like to focus more on wellness through eating right, exercising, clearing my mind daily and also coming up with a better skincare routine.

I know it’s easier to say these things than to actually do them but I am really going to make a conscious effort this year because if not now, when? Here’s to a happy and healthy 2017. Hoping the new year brings you joy and peace. Just remember while you’re doing so much for others, to take a little time to do something special for yourself too.

Happy New Year!


Wow – today is the last day of 2012! I have to say, it’s been a very eventful year. I set a bunch of goals last January and I was able to accomplish many of them – surpassing and surprising myself at some. I have to say, it really helped me to write them down and write about my progress and challenges. It made me more accountable as well as keep my focus.

I’ll be doing the same for 2013 and I’m really excited to see what the year may bring. First and foremost though, my number one goal is to be a good mother.

We’ll be having a quiet celebration tonight involving Chinese takeout, Proseco and 200 Cigarettes (a perfect New Year’s movie). Hope you have a happy one however you celebrate and here’s to all the best in 2013!

Hello 2012!

Happy New Year!  I hope it’s already starting out to be a great one for everybody.

We spent last night in the midst of friends and rang in the new year.  The Husband surprised me with a really sweet gift today that I know is going to inspire me to actively follow my dreams this year.

Here’s to a wonderful start to 2012 – I have a feeling it’s going to be a fantastic year!
