Our Christmas was quiet and I needed that. But I love the fresh start of a New Year. Hello 2014... it's nice to meet you! Did you make any resolutions?
My New Year's resolution is simple but I'm quite serious about it. For some time now, I've had the earnest desire to slow things down in my life ~ which won't be easy in a world that is moving sooo fast. For me, 'slowing down' will mean changing my focus a bit, learning to live more in the moment, learning to say "no" when I have to ~ and it won't come naturally. But that's my goal, and I'm sticking to it. What's yours?
As I like to do, here's a quick glance back at my makes in 2013.
