Happy New Year!


It is my wish today, that as you read this you are a bit groggy (perhaps confined to your couch with greasy takeout and Gatorade?) from ringing in your best New Year yet.

Happiest of New Years to you all… and now… let the Resolutions posts come in!  I will not be making resolutions this year simply because my goal is to do less, live more, and sparkle a bit more, too.  Quality over quantity.  I encourage you to do the same.  After all… we can’t sparkle when we’re stressed, can we!?  Let’s all please just try to remember that as we head back to the office tomorrow… life is too short to spend it worrying!  (Of course I say that after a week off… talk to me in a month.)

    Gorgeous pics! I definitely have a few resolutions for 2013, but I think my overarching theme for the year is do more with less and live more simply. I often find that my weekends are just as stressful as my weekdays because I’m always trying to get through a laundry list of errands. Being on vacation for 2 weeks has definitely changed my mindset, but I agree with ya – let’s see how I’m doing in a month!

    Happy new year!!

    Happy new year, Grace! Quality over quantity is huge. I made some resolutions this year but made it a goal to keep them attainable and measurable. Baby steps!
    Isn’t That Charming.
