My “Chique” Mantra

Happy New Year! Better late than never, right? After a very relaxing, mellow holiday break, we have been hitting the ground running, so I am a bit behind in blog-land.

Embracing a new beginning can sometimes be difficult, especially, when the winter blues set in as they have here. At least the sun is shining today.

Do you typically make New Year’s resolutions? I am not one for making big insurmountable goals just because it is January. I try to live in moderation all year long. Last year, I did put in writing some rules to live by here.

And as I reflect on 2013, I do feel as though I did pretty well. Like I tell my kids, there is always room for improvement, right? Nobody is perfect and certainly shouldn’t strive to be. Our differences and flaws are what make us all interesting individuals, with a few stories to share!

Despite some of the disappointments of 2013, it was a year filled with many successes to celebrate. With two boys, two dogs and more than two balls in the air at any one time, it seems like everyday is an adventure around here, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.

How did your life fare in 2013? As we head into a new year, I am grateful for so much and as a family I know we can conquer all that comes our way.

To keep me on track, here is my mantra for 2014.

words to live by for 2014

Cheers to 2014, my friends.  Let’s make this the best year yet!
