“Cheers to a new year, and another chance for us to get it right!” -Oprah Winfrey
2018 was a crazy year, with lots of ups and downs, like any other year! I was challenged, but I’ve also been changed! I’ve hurt, and I’ve worked to heal.
I’m excited for a new year, cause 2019 is shaping up to be AWESOME! Have a happy New Year! 😊
What was a highlight of your 2018?
Look, I’m gonna be honest… when we didn’t have power yesterday, one of my thoughts was definitely about “but I can’t miss my workout… I have a punny shirt I’ve waited months to wear!”
Plus there’s the whole stress relief, and the fact on a day I’m gonna pig out I •need• to move my body… so of course, it was a thought for sure!
So yeah, it’s been a rough couple of days, but in the end I’m GRATEFUL we even HAVE a home to power, and to heat (yeah our furnace started having issues basically the second the power fiasco got resolved 😳)
And I’m GRATEFUL that I have workouts and a capable body to help me work through the stressors of being a homeowner.
Merry Christmas 💕
Santa’s coming tonight! 🎄
But, he’s gonna skip YOU if you skip MONDAY, so hop to it!
Yes, I did wear my Santa hat for most of my workout 😊
Cool jammies with a cool Aunt! 💕
(Mine are backwards to show the hilarious backside!)
You are NEVER too old for fete pajamas!
And yes I’m gonna wear the heck out of these cozy babes! You can’t take life too seriously – none of us make it out of here alive, so live it and love it while you can!
So happy the holidays are making some people extra friendly, kind, patient and generous…
Just kidding, it’s making some people absolutely nuts!
Luckily not everyone is like the majority of people I encountered today!
No ones life is perfect.
No ones family is perfect.
No ones body is perfect.
But you are here. Your heart is beating. Your blood is flowing, and oxygen is enabling you to breathe.
So yes, there is always something to be grateful and thankful for. Use those as your base and build upon it!
I’m grateful and thankful for too many things to list so ill try to sum it up… I’m thankful for my life and the ability to live it, grateful for all the amazing people I’m blessed to have be a part of it, and truly honored to have so much love and laughter in my life. Happy thanksgiving all!
What’s something else YOU are thankful for?
Cutest little patriotic pup here wishing you a happy day of fun and celebration!
(And she has a favor to ask about the fireworks… 😉)
(ps, y’all have no idea what it took to get a decent pic with that scarf on!)
Of course I have to dress the part, right?!
I had this funny (to me) idea for a shirt and while my execution/idea didn’t go off as planned, I still find it funny and I fixed up the mess as best as I could, and it was fun to wear while doing Booty day with friends! This is when I need to remember PERFECTION is not a real thang!
I LIVE to create, in case it wasn’t clear!
Happy St Patrick’s day!
Happy New Year, dear readers!
It’s been quite a year for me – full of ups and downs, highs and lows, pain and growth… I won’t bore you with the details (or the list!), but while there have been some pains, there have been some gains, and I am excited to focus on a bright, shiny new year, and curious to see what the year has in store for me.
I love a new year because, while I don’t make resolutions, I do set goals and work on myself throughout the year, and a new year just provides a fresh new slate, and I love the fuzzy feeling of a clean beginning!
Do you set goals? Have any fun New Years eve plans? Are you excited for a new year, too?
Thanks for being along on my journey – I am excited to connect with you even more in the new year!
