My brain has gone a little fuzzy with all the Christmas excitement and activity, then post-Christmas cleaning and organizing, then packing for Jacksonville, vacationing, coming back. Now, seemingly, all of a sudden I'm back in a whole new year. The only resolution I'm making this year is to just enjoy. To put down the dishes or vacuum or paintbrush or whatever it may be and enjoy my husband and my kids. I don't want to miss the moments that they want me to just hold them or tell me a story.
Although it wasn't as warm as I hoped FL would be it was so nice to just walk to the beach and breathe in the salty air and listen to the wind and waves. My sister and I spent a little time one night watching the full moon shine on the ocean as the waves rolled in. It was magic and made so much more special spending precious time with my sis. When hugging goodbye I always hold back tears and tell myself I'll see her again before too long, but I feel like it's punishment to be that far from people you love.
The best parts of 2012 were filled with reading books, cooking pretend and real food together, laughing, little voices singing, exploring, playing with friends, some really good dates (Blackberry Farm- sigh) with my love, snuggles, our little trips (mainly to the park, library, and zoo), and enjoying each other. So that is what I want for 2013- more of this.
