Happy New Year!

2018, how did that happen? We had a great celebration with good friends we’ve known for more than half our lives. There’s something so comfortable about hanging out with someone who knows you better than you know yourself. Especially when all members of the family get along!

So now that the New Year is actually here, it’s time for the age old tradition of resolutions…I know these rarely stick and many people don’t even bother setting them anymore. But the optimist in me loves the idea of a fresh start, a clean slate, a new beginning, because there’s nothing better than being offered another shot! (Keep reading friends, I have coupon codes at the bottom, and a chance to win a hat!!)

Taking steps into the new year


Many of my resolutions are the same every year, be more organized, manage my time better, eat healthier, go to the gym more, save more money!!  I also have family resolutions; less screen time for the kids, read more books as a family, be more intentional about day trips, be kind and show compassion.  This year I’m going to try something new with a group of my girlfriends from church, called the Dream Guide. This is a tool to reflect on the past year and think intentionally on the new year to come. Plus it ensures good girlfriend time!!

And my personal favorite thing to do it set a word for the year. I usually don’t pick a new word every year, it depends on where I’m at with the word. JOY was my word for a couple years, before I felt like I understood it and could live in it most of the time. Last year I switched to STRENGTH, and I’m going to keep on with it in 2018, I feel like I really need to meditate and practice it more!

How about you? What are some traditions you have for the new year? I’d love to hear about them. Leave me a comment. And as a little incentive, I’ll do a giveaway for one of our new Mariposa Ranch Trucker Hats! Comment and tag a friend and I’ll enter you into the drawing!!
