new year's 2014: optimism


I love reading through everyone's New Year posts. Goals and dreams listed, everything so optimistic. It really feels like a clean slate. This New Year's I am trying to look forward to 2014 and leave 2013 in the dust. It was a doozy of a year for us, but I'd rather not get into that. I like this little space to be a place of smiles and happiness, optimism and laughter. That's not to say that bad things don't happen to us, they sure do. But I like the silver linings, the blue sky and the big plans for the days to come. 2014 brings for us a new home, a new job starting, and hopefully some better luck. I am looking forward to making new friends, getting some exercise, writing a little everyday, being in a wedding, and all the little moments in-between that will make the year special. Now, if you will excuse me I need to go pack some boxes. If you're curious, we are moving again because of a leak in our ceiling. Like Byron said, 'If we can move from NC to WI in two weeks, we can move across town in two days.' Like I said, optimism.

    1. Thanks. We just counted how many times Rosy has moved with us- 6! Hopefully this will be the last one for a while.
