Happy New Year!

I'm still here!

We've been busy, sick, cold, and trying to enjoy a crazy holiday here! I promise pictures are coming soon. If I can just get the camera, my computer and the camera cord in same room then we'd be set!

I've never been much of a resolution girl. I used to work hard on them, I think goals are good, but I usually ended up quite disappointed. Sad, but true.

My sweet friend wrote that she is going to have a word of the year: Enjoy.

I love it. I would like to enjoy things more.

In the part of "Eat, Pray, Love" that I enjoyed (the middle part :)

"Don't you know that the secret to understanding a city and its people is to learn-what is the word of the street?" -Elizabeth Gilbert from "Eat, Pray, Love"

The word of my street might not be enjoy. I would like it to be tranquility. We've had too much tumult these past two years. But that might be too much to hope for. I wrote on Facebook that I wanted normalcy but got mocked for wanting things to be normal.

So, as cheesy as it is, I'm going to say LOVE.

I want more love.
I want to love myself more. There is a lot entailed in this part of my plan.
I want to love my husband more and remember all the wonderful things I married him for six years ago.
I want to love my kids more and show that with a lot more patience and kindness.
I want to love my friends more and let them know.
I want to love my job and I want to love every inch of my thousand square foot apartment.

which of course means getting it organized, so wish me luck! :)
