I've decided I'm not looking back on 2011... I'm jumping into 2012 with my eyes and arms wide open..... although maybe I should look before I leap just a bit since 2012 is looking to be a bit of an overwhelming year for me.
A year of new beginnings for my whole family. For me... a soon to be "empty nester". For my son who will be learning to be a new homeowner, housekeeper and bookkeeper all at once. And for my daughter who will be a married this summer bringing a new family member to our clan, her husband.... and the wedding which will make my husband much poorer - just kidding, but I couldn't leave him out!
Tonight I will ring in the New Year at the stroke of midnight, probably fast asleep, but it will come nonetheless. A year that I will try to embrace fully with all of its changes. I predict there will be lots of ups and a few downs as I navigate 2012.
Like all of you, I will awake tomorrow to a new day... a new month... a new year. I don't plan to make any resolutions except perhaps to try and enjoy the ride of 2012.
So without further ado.... Happy New Year from....
