Dear Husband...


 I am thankful everyday for the amazing man I married. The man who makes me giggle all the time, who gives me big bear hugs when I need them the most, who always does the dishes, who tells me all will be well, who takes me on amazing date nights, who is endlessly supportive & sweet, who shares ice cream with me in our PJs, who takes care of me when I don't feel well & who rolls over to cuddle me in the middle of the night and plays footsie with me under the covers...

Dear Husband...

I thank God every single day for you.

XO

2012

Happy New Year lovelies! I hope yours was safe and joyous!

We all know all the clichés that go along with New Year's resolutions. You resolve to lose weight, be cleaner, save the whales, whatever, but fall off the wagon a month in...yada yada yada...

Sometimes I complete mine, sometimes I don't, but I still LOVE making them. There's something so very refreshing and magical about starting a whole new year- so full of possibility. Its like a perfect clean slate you get to make as wonderful as possible.
So, without further ado, in 2012 I resolve to:

1. Lose 20 pounds. 

2. Run my second half marathon (March 25th) We even joined a running club!

3. Clean out my closet. Be brutal.
    Purchase classic quality pieces, not impulse crazy things...

4. Pay off debt. Be more financially responsible. 

5. Be the best wife, daughter, friend and colleague as possible.

6. Not be so damn hard on myself.

Let's do this 2012.
