Happy New Year!

I am always excited to start another year. A new calendar to fill with fun and a fresh new beginning. I am not big on resolutions but do like to ponder what I should focus on and weed out some of the things that cause stress and steal our joy. God has been so good to us and I have nothing but thanksgiving in my heart for this last year. Even with the loss of my job, a new job for Steve and the uncertainty of the economy, I can see Gods hand in everything that has happened and rest in knowing He has us in His mighty grip.
What a blessing to have that peace!

A few goals for this year...

read more books

see more of my fabulous aunts and uncles knowing they are getting older and are so darn fun to be around

organize my photos and home movies

I truly desire to serve my family and husband with a cheerful heart

put down my phone and be more present
get a massage at least once a month { that's how we rang in new years with my family all getting 25 bucks you can spend }

have as much fun with the people I love & make sure I let them know how important they are to me
that is the favorite one that I hope the most to keep!
We had the most wonderful Christmas and enjoyed having a baby in the family so much more than I even dreamed ! He truly made it the most wonderful Christmas!
I will post pics of all that fun soon
But today I wish you all a Happy Happy New Year and hope that as you look  back you will see all the joy & blessings of the last year and smile
I know I am...
This pic was on Travis instagram and I just love it!
Lets all go forward into 2013 with this kind of abandon and joy!

Happy New Year to you too Sophia! Attitude is everything so I can't imagine you having anything but a VERY Happy New Year. I love the picture of Chad and Beckham although those shots always make me so nervous...I tell my kids that throwing their children up in the air like that will make them stutter, it hasn't stopped them and no one stutters so....oh well, I tried. I think we are coming back to California soon, I'll let you know as soon as I know and we can make plans to get together.
