Toasting To A New Year

"Write it on your heart that every day is the best day in the year."
Ralph Waldo Emerson

This year we decided to end the hectic holiday season with the perfect getaway; a family ski trip to upstate New York! Even though we didn't get as much snow as we had hoped and the skiing conditions weren't perfect, we still enjoyed some much needed family time away.

And honestly, it was exactly what we did need. Jon was actually able to relax, Jonas was healthy and in great spirits and Jess rocked it on the slopes this year. And Josh? Well, Josh is Josh, the most laid back kid around. We did one round down the bunny hill and that was all the kids needed to bring back the feel of being on skis. Every year I'm amazing by how quickly kids advance in such challenging sports.

And so here we are, a new year upon us.

2015 was a great year, but I eagerly welcome 2016. We have lots of great plans ahead including a trip to Mexico, a house renovation and a summer vacation. I'm not one for making traditional resolutions, but here are a few thoughts that are on my mind for 2016:

- travel more
- spend less
- practice minimalism
- recycle as much as possible
- assign chores
- read good literature
- take more photographs
- slow down
- increase my running mileage
- play
- embrace friendships
- live each day
- watch a sunrise
- drink less coffee
- write daily

What about you? Do you make New Years resolutions? Any goals for the new year?
