Welcome, 2012

For 99% of people I encountered in the last few days of 2011, they were all ready to see the year go away, never to return. The hubs & I were part of that number. I won't say that my year sucked-- a TON of great things happened. But there was also a lot of disappointment that seems to outweigh the good things. So I ready to see the year go buh-bye.

We started the weekend out here:
View of the Las Vegas Strip

The plan wasn't to spend New Years on the Strip this year, but it just sort of happened that way. I've done it before and knew it was nuts, but over the years ... and let's face it, since I've gotten older ... it's become nuttier of a place to be. But when you are 40 floors above the Strip, it isn't so bad. So off to Cosmopolitan Las Vegas we went on Friday.

We invited some friends to join us; the more the merrier for the New Year. To make the long story short, we had an amazing weekend. Full of fun, love, friends and big dreams for a new year.

A New Years Eve in Vegas means a New Years Day on the couch. My hangover was mild as compared to other years and other holidays, but it still required a several-hour nap.

It's been a long time since I spent an entire day just resting and feeling OK about it. In the new year, I plan on being ok with unwinding. Not every second of every day has to be dedicated to achieving something. But in its own way, I achieved inner peace and relaxation.

I managed one quick trip to the store and managed to boil some noodles and heat some sauce for the hubs' dinner. A successful day indeed.

For the month of January, I've signed up to blog daily, courtesy of NaBloPoMo ... or National Blog Posting Month. Every day, a new prompt is posted and then I get to write about it. :) Thanks for joining me on my journey ... a new year, a new start, a new project with the hopes of rediscovering my love of writing.
