You Don't Need New Year's Resolutions. January 1st is Just Another Day!

On the morning of January 1st,  I walked downstairs, made coffee, stood in the middle of our living room, and stared at our Christmas tree we so enthusiastically decorated the day after Thanksgiving. Are the holidays really over? Do we really have to put all of the decorations away? What are my resolutions? Why didn't I write them down this year? It's nice to see other people share their resolutions. It's great to see so many people wanting to better themselves. What's a better time to do it? After all, the prospect of a brand new year is encouraging....more

The Word of 2015 Is PURPOSE

Starting Fresh… My 2015 Goals

The new year is the perfect time to start fresh…Put a blank cassette tape in the radio (I am totally dating myself but I used to make mix tapes.)Take out a fresh notebook (HomeGoods has a ton of these… totally need to get some.)Wear an outfit for the first time (I should totally go shopping this weekend.)...more

It's a New Year: Forget What is Behind

New Year, New Beginning....

It's the new year so a new beginning and god knows I need it. I'm new to blogging also but it's more of a therapeutic thing than anything else but any hints and tips are greatly appreciated. First of all, I'm five months pregnant so health and well being is something I intend to pick up on. My initial thoughts were to start climbing again as soon as I'm able to, get more hobbies, and enjoy better food and drink (but less of it!). I'm going to stop drinking 90 cups of instant coffee a day and go for the odd cup of more gourmet stuff....more
