Whoa! Do you feel like 2018 flew by too? Maybe it’s the rush of the holidays that makes me feel like the new year sneaks up on me every time. And maybe its those days after Christmas when my family is home on winter break where I forget what day it is and what I should be doing. Hahaha! Either way, the new year is here! Time for an inventory count, maybe a resolution or two and a drink to ring in 2019.

As I sip my spiked coffee this afternoon (my kiddos each have a friend over for a New Year’s celebration…you know you’d be drinking too!) and put the finishing touches on this post, I can’t help but smile as I look back on the past year. I’m smiling at all the fun times; AND all the not so fun times. Dang there was a lot of joy and a whole lot of BS this past year! Sound familiar? Chin up! Nothing feels quite like a fresh start than a sparkly new year. The possibilities feel endless.

A toast as we all ring in the New Year tonight! May your new year bring you much success, a fresh perspective, and a goal or two that scare you. May you and your families be blessed with health, time together and joyful moments. And may you find strength and laughter to pull you through any tough times. From our families to yours, we wish you a fantastic and fierce 2019!
