Happy New Year, friends!
Isn't that the best happy New Year's quote? Thanks Tamikko via Pinterest!
Hope you had wonderful holidays and celebrations or simply enjoyed some time off. :) It's been a fun and busy time for us as YS2 understands more of the hoopla surrounding the holidays.
I had been wondering if we'd raise Caleb to "believe" in Santa. He'll know the real reason for Christmas and he'll know of Santa, of course, but wasn't sure I wanted to get into the whole Santa thing. Well, Sam convinced me (with little arm-twisting) to follow tradition and enjoy the spirit of Santa. So YS2 got Santa gifts and all that. I failed to get a picture of him with Santa this year though. #Lame. I think he recovered from last year's Santa experience but I guess we'll never know for certain. Looking back at my childhood, I'm not sure if I believed in Santa. At least, I don't remember being disappointed in learning he wasn't real -- I mean I have older brothers and a sister so there you go. Anyway, it's been really fun getting into the traditions we grew up with to share with Caleb.

So now...it's 2012. Wow. I hope time slows a little. Egads. But with the end of the world coming I suppose it won't matter a whole lot. Enjoy every minute with everyone! That's what I say. :)
I am, however, looking forward to this new year. The vision board I created last year really seemed to work so I'll be revamping or recreating a new vision board. One improvement I've made already is investing in some workout clothes. It's one of the reasons I failed in the fitness department. A beautiful friend pointed out that that is a lame excuse because one can at least go walking in jeans or whatever. I did seem to look for excuses when really, I had none. So now, I officially have NO EXCUSES to not exercise in some way. But besides improving my fitness regime, I feel optimistic, motivated, and excited for the new year. Helps I'm getting a head start. Yay for new beginnings!
Hey, we might even see more nutritious and fun food on this ol' blog! That'd be a switch. Wink wink. Not promising anything though. Ha!
Many thanks to those of you who've been loyal and supportive of me and my blog. I will still be blogging about different things that have nothing to do with food or nutrition or my goals (hello! YS2 - and hello! it's my blog) as I like variety but I know it stumps and frustrates some so I truly appreciate those who've stuck around.
Hope you're having a great start to a new year! I love you all and look forward to keeping up with your happenings, too.
Cheers to a very good new year!
