we had a fantastic new year's eve with all the right pieces. good food, fun people, jeopardy watching, board game playing, and in bed shortly after midnight. low-key and yet simply wonderful. ahhhh perfect. welcome 2013.
i rang in the new year in a comfy chair nursing the sweet bundle above, while others were watching the ball drop in the next room. i actually loved this. what a wonderful way to ring in a new year...with my little girl, bringing her comfort and nourishment, and in a way that we will find ourselves hundreds and hundreds of times over the next year.
i didn't make many resolutions this year, but i made a few. in the past i've tried making a bunch, last year i made a goal for each month (which was surprisingly wonderful), but this year i'm just tackling a few things. some are being more present (with less technology), doing one good deed a day, and lots of outside adventures with my family. however, my most exciting one is that i'm going to write a story for maeve each month. you know, so some fabulous book editor can contact me in december and say something like "we'll buy all 12...and your next dozen, too". actually, i just want her to have, next to her already full bookshelf, some stories written by her mama. anything else would just be icing on a an delicious cake. i already have the ideas for the first few...which has me giddy with excitement.
how'd you send 2012 out and bring 2013 in?
