Holiday Card Front

{Our Holiday Card}

Happy New Year, friends! I hope your 2016 is off to a great start. I ended my 2015 not knowing how to play poker, and started the year getting the hang of it, even if my dwindling pile of chips suggested otherwise. 

My best friend Rohini and her boyfriend have been with us the last couple days and we’ve been having a grand old time keeping it very low-key, just like I like it. One thing’s for sure, we are not the wild young things we were just a few years ago, and that’s ok. I’m very much liking this pushing-30 me.

I’ll share more on my resolutions later, but one of them is appreciating the passing of time instead of dreading it. I’ve never been a huge fan of the New Year holiday, because being who I am, I get in this bad habit of being very critical of myself, looking back and nitpicking at all of the things I coulda-shoulda-woulda done differently. This time around, I’m making a conscious effort to appreciate that I’ve had the good fortune to live another day and year and am taking more time for reflection, and more time to be with those that I love. My dear husband Brian (I’m still not used to calling him that – in general, it’s a very weird word that word “husband”) and his way of making me feel protected and cheerful have been a great help in getting me there. So anyway, 2016, I’m ready for you, and am very much looking forward to living in the moment, a whole heck of a lot more than I was doing last year. I don’t know about you, but my 2015 was absolutely bonkers – bonkers in the best way of course ;). 

Once more, a very Happy New Year to you and yours!

P.S. My lack of posting is once again due to some blog login issues I’ve been having, but I hope I’ve taken care of them. That and binging on Making a Murderer on Netflix. If you haven’t already started watching, run, don’t walk.
