There is something about the new year that is so inspiring about a new year. A fresh start. A second chance (or third, or fourth…). Every January, I am encouraged to re-amp my ‘goals’ list and set my bar higher. I know that there are some people who have completely lost faith in the ‘New Year’s Resolution’, but I want to encourage you to stay positive. So what if your new resolution only lasts until the end of January? That’s one month where you lived as a healthier/happier/more organized/stronger/smarter you! The important thing is not to give up if you have a tiny set back, but to get up and try again.
I’ve always been the kind of person who likes to celebrate everything. I can always find an excuse to go out and do something fun! So, of course, I found a reason to drag Drew to Royal Oak (my favorite!) on one of the coldest days of the year…
I have a confession: I have a major sweet tooth. There’s no use denying it. I firmly believe that the best things in life are sweet! That being said, it’s important to practice moderation…but sometimes I just can’t help it. Especially during the winter months, I like to indulge a little more, to keep morale high.
I will be the first to admit that I do not like the cold. Unfortunately, I live in a very cold state. Also, a lot of my family and friends live here, and while I hate the cold, I love them, so it looks like I’ll be staying in-state for at least a little while longer. One thing, however, that keeps my spirits high during the cold months, is living in a cool city.
For those of you who haven’t heard, I broke my hand on Christmas (how fun…). Everyone has been so great though, helping me out and taking care of me. Drew has been especially great, barely letting me lift a finger. He decided to use this opportunity to break out one of his birthday gifts.
