Best memories from the holiday season

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

The end is here. And boy am I thankful.

While this year's holiday season seemed busier than normal I am extremely thankful for my blessings. My favorite two memories from this year:
1) Walking with my son on Christmas Eve, looking at all the lights.
2) Driving home last night from the last in a looooong line of holiday events, talking about our favorite memories of the year.

I note these, because neither involved money or food and can become family traditions. Yes I think its good to reflect at the end of the holiday season so that I can move forward into the new year wiser and with a great appreciation for what I have.

PS. Its my one year Sparkiversary! Yes, I joined Spark as a New Year's Resolution and what a change it has made in my life. I know most resolutions are broken within 2 weeks of making them, but 2012 was one of my best years ever because of you'z guyz. Thanks for supporting me in my weakness and celebrating my strengths and victories.

    Happy Sparkiversary!!! I too, am glad the holidays are done, and here's hoping 2013 is as good health/fitnesswise as 2012!

(Hope things are getting better too - I've been thinking of you!)

    The best traditions are so often the simplest. I'm particularly fond of Christmas afternoon nap.

Lovely. Thank you for sharing and for the reminder to find the joy.
