Happy New Year

 “We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day.”


Is it really almost 2012?! When reflecting back on this year, it has been an incredible journey filled with happiness, success, ups and downs, new experiences and new lessons learned. I'm looking forward to what's in store for the New Year, one being the birth of my first baby :) I'd love to reflect more on 2011 next week as well as what my plans are for the year ahead, and I'd love for you to share too! More to come next week...but for now, enjoy the weekend, have plenty of champagne [and have a glass for me, since alcohol is off limits for me this year :(]and celebrate your life and all of the things you have to be grateful for. Cheers! xoxo - Julie

  7. Congrats on your new baby! Such a blessing it is to have a new baby around. It certainly brings joy and comfort to all. Skipping alcoholic drinks is a great new year’s resolution. Yes, we need to reflect on year 2011 had brought us. We should be thankful for the blessings 2011 brought and the new blessings in store for us this 2012.
