a good start

We've been hunkered down this weekend due to extremely cold temps. (currently -9) New Years was really really nice. Just being together and watching the fireworks from our deck is all I can ever ask for. Tyler slept through it all which amazed us. Butters (our nervous nelly of a dog) on the other hand was buggin the whole time. Alaskans usually go all out with their fireworks on New Years since it's darker than dark out. It's pretty much daylight all summer so 4th of July is nothing but a lot of boom and bang. I love seeing the night sky all lit up with magic. The mountains are especially pretty with all the hillsiders lighting off fireworks. I almost gave myself frostbite by not wearing gloves and taking photos the whole time, no joke. My finger tips were throbbing after 10 mins of being outside. Freezing my ass off and watching the lights really got me thinking about my one word for the year as well as my resolutions. (Are resolutions not the "it" thing anymore?) Oh well..I still make them. They make me hopeful for what lies ahead. I'm excited. Above are my resolutions, I especially like the "spend less, make more" which leads to my one word. I pondered it for awhile and thought, duh..

It's really crucial that I stay on track with these goals as they will play a big part in my future. Some things are long overdue and I have no excuse to not move forward. I can no longer sit back and let opportunities and ideas slip through my fingers and shrug it off as it not being meant to be.

Here's to a brand new year of positivity and awesomeness.
