These images are technically from 2015 and our trip back east for the holidays, but I’m using them to say hello to 2016. Cool? Cool.

Happy New Year! How long will we all say that before it’s no longer acceptable? Whatever the case, I love a new year. It’s a new beginning and a time to reset. Like I mentioned in my last post, I won’t be making official resolutions, but I will be mindful of taking care of myself this year. I’m just a few years away from 40 (gasp!) and my body is starting to feel it. It’s amazing how invincible you feel in your 20s, then you hit your 30s and everything starts slowly falling apart. Then, (I think) you spend your 40s getting it all back on track, so you can enter your 50s feeling better than ever! At least, I hope that’s the path ahead. It’s the path I’m making for myself. Who’s with me? What decade are you in and how does your body feel to you? Excited about what’s to come?

  • This is such a simple, fun look, and I love it! Happy New Year to you too! I’m in my 20’s, and I’m not sure if invincible is the word I would use now, but I have a feeling I’ll think differently in my 30’s. Only time will tell!
