This has been the single best year of my life so far! And from where I sit, next year looks to be just as good. Let’s take a moment to reflect over the year, count our blessings in the Now, and ponder the greatness of the coming year, shall we?

I am so very grateful for this life God has blessed me with. I usually only write about the good stuff on here, and it’s a great way to acknowledge my blessings and be grateful. Of course there are hard times and challenges, but even through those I truly believe God has a great lesson built in there for me. I’m basking in all the Love bestowed upon me. Thank You.
As I look forward to 2014 I’m beyond excited for the possibilities it can hold. I’m kicking the year off right on a bucket list trip to Napa Valley :) When I get back it will be time to focus on some big goals for the new year. I’m going to call them goals rather than resolutions, because I’m pretty good at achieving my goals. Just for fun, let’s set 14 goals for 2014.
Start a family. This makes me so excited and nervous all in one. I finally found the love of my life and want so much to have a little family together.
Buy a house.
Build a new career. I don’t think life should stop with a baby, and I am excited to build a new career.
Get a new car. It’s just time.
Do more yoga.
Do a barre fitness class.
Run a race.
Floss my teeth everyday. This one is going to be hard. I’m really bad about it :( We better just say every other day, that will be an improvement to my once a month. Or, how about once a week? ;) Let’s go with that for now.
Monthly dates with my girl friends. You know who you are.
Eat at the Elevage Restaurant at the Epicurean Hotel in Tampa.
Attend more blogger functions.
Visit family in Ohio and Pennsylvania.
Focus on balance in all areas of my life.
I wish you all a healthy, blessed New Year filled with positivity, love and light. Happy New Year!!!!!!
