happy happy new year

First things first. Happy New Year to everyone out there. Can you believe it is 2010? This past decade has flown by. I spent New Year's Eve 2000 on a boat in Tokyo eating sushi and it was awesome. I had no idea that 10 years later I would be married with 3 kids and just enjoying life as a stay-at-home mama. It was what I always wanted, and to see that things all worked out the way I always dreamed is pretty darn cool.

I had a quiet new year's at home at home and it was perfect. After we got the kiddos to bed Graham played his Tony Hawk PS3 game that I got him for Christmas and I just browsed through all of our family photos from 2009 (see collage above). I was totally caught up in the memories and everything that we did, learned and accomplished this past year. I am super sentimental and emotional and I found myself saying the same old things to myself...I want my kids to stop growing! Time is going by too fast! But you know what? It was a good year and I'm excited for a new one. I love new beginnings and a fresh start, so bring it on.

I have some goals in mind for this new year, but nothing set in stone yet. I plan on finding a few quiet moments this weekend to sit down and really think about what changes I need to make, what things I want to accomplish and what I need to improve on. The list is just too long of all the ways I could improve myself, so I'll have to narrow it down to just a few! But I am excited.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Ours was so so good. I just love the magic of Christmas with little kids...they definately brought a spirit with them this year that was irreplaceable. I just love my little family.

I'm excited to get back on the blogging bandwagon for 2010...I'll see you soon!
