Oh Hello, January

Um, you guys.....I kinda feel like I'm the luckiest girl I know.  No wait, I'm not trying to brag, bible.  I'm just saying that I am VERY aware of my abundant, plethora of blessings.  In fact, I'm so aware of it that I'm scared.  I'm scared something will happen and it will all be taken away from me, that it might be time for another "test" if you catch my drift.  Please know that I have my fair share of trials (who doesn't),  but the good definitely outweighs the bad. 

This holiday season seems like a blur.  There were a lot of parties, family, fun, & outings.  It definitely is a magical time of year, and I wanted for nothing.  I think that's what it's all about.  Loved ones, get-togethers, food, positivity, new goals, new possibilities! 

This year I tried something new.  I made goals for myself, but I also made joint goals with Jack....it was.......new...I've never made goals with another person.  I liked it.  We have each other to keep each other accountable, and motivated....perfect situation right?

Thinking about 2012 I have nothing but happy sentiments, and gratitude.  I had a lot of adventures with Jack, earned a Bachelor's Degree, grew closer to family, discovered a different meaning of patience, made some pretty big goals, & cultivated new found "talents."  In reflection of the year I honestly can't think of any bad moments, I'll count my lucky stars for that one.  I hope it'll stay serine and calm this year.  Fingers crossed, everything crossed.

Not everyone that I network with has instagram (where I post all my "important" photos) so I thought I'd include some pix of this holiday season just for kicks:

Siaki took me on a date to the Natural History Museum and he got really into it

Christmas Bingo on Advent Sunday (Laki and Mom)

Oh my gosh....this is my Steve Madden bag (that might as well be my baby) I got at my work xmas party.  Best xmas party ever.

Spent a lot of time with this little dream

Downtown Salt Lake City during the holidays was magical.  Pictures don't really do it justice.

This was my FAVORITE gift I received.  I had mentioned how badly I wanted one but never thought it would be a reality, then.....it happened.  It was one of the best surprises I've received from Siaki

Kitty in all her glory!
I think it's safe to say I love this guy so much.  Such a wonderful holiday season!
