thoughts on a new year

i can't say that i am one for making new year's resolutions, but i do love entirely the feeling of a clean slate & starting over.  a reason to look at the past year and reflect & look at the future year and project.

for me, this past year has been the best yet: a new job, a new husband, a new life really... i am so thankful, grateful, and happy that things worked out the way they did.  i don't know what will happen in 2013.  maybe buy a house? maybe a puppy? maybe a new car? maybe it all? i can't wait to see!

anyway, where was i? oh yes, resolutions. i'm keeping it simple & basic this year.
read more.
sweat more.
drink more (water, that is!).
laugh more.

on the reading: i have always been a big reader, but when i started my new job in july i became so busy that the only thing i was reading were blogs.  yesterday, with a day off from work, i lounged on the couch all day and finally finished a book i started on the honeymoon.  it reminded me how much i have missed reading. i have a few reads on my list - time to get to it! (let me know if you have any recommendations!)

on the sweating: another thing that slowed and eventually stopped once i started the new job: RUNNING.. i miss it so much! this should be an easy one to get back into because more often than not, i have a nice chunk of time in the mornings before work.

on the drinking: water is so good for your skin, hair, and just about everything else.  drink more!

on the laughing: who doesn't love to laugh? laughing keeps the heart happy and healthy!

i'm excited to make these things priorities in the new year... cheers to a fabulous 2013!
