Starting the New Year Out Right!

How was everyone’s Christmas and New Years?!  NYE was a ton of fun for us.  Tom and I got to spend it upstate with a bunch of our friends.  Nothing better then bringing in the New Year with your loves!

I always get super excited about a New Year.  Something about it feeling like a fresh start seems to get me in such a good mood.  I know each year presents its own challenges but I love being able to start out with a clear head and new goals for the year ahead. 2015 was a tough one for us.  My father-in-law, Fred, passed away just a few weeks shy of our 1 year wedding anniversary.  It was a very emotional time, full with lots of changes as well.  My mother-in-law, Birgit, passed away 4 years ago so Fred’s passing was sort of the end of a lot of different things, or the positive flip on that is the beginning of so many new things.  We had to say goodbye to his parents house, in the town that all of his friends family still live.  It was a very eye opening experience.  Although 2015 was a sad year for us, we cannot say that the entire year was awful.  We got to take our honeymoon in the Dominican Republic, which was so amazing! We also got to see the Met’s go to the world series and even got to see a game at Citi Field! We also got to spend a lot of time with family and loved ones, something that you can never put a price tag on! I like to think that each year has ups and downs, some worse than others, but its what molds us and makes us who we are.

I know we have some changes ahead, not sure what they are yet since we are still working things out, but I know whatever path we end up going down it will be super exciting!

Did any of you make a New Years resolution??!  I did, aside from the usual, getting my butt back into shape and living a healthier life, Tom and I plan to make the most of this year.  We want to start crossing things off our big bucket list, travel around the area we live more and once the weather gets nice try to do as many fun outdoor activities as we can!

I wish all of you a wonderful 2016, full of positive changes and love!

I would love to hear what you plan on doing this New Year, please do share!
