Cheers to 2014

Happy New Years friends! I hope you all had a fun and safe New Years Eve. For the first time in a while I did not make it until midnight last night. Ryan and I went to bed about 11. We were tired and couldn’t make it. I know, we are old.

I actually feel no shame admitting that at all. We had a fun time last night. We ate dinner and watched The Hobbit. It was a relaxing night at home, which after being so busy for Christmas, was exactly what we needed. Going to bed early enabled me to get up, have a good workout, and then have a nutritious breakfast before Ryan and I start our day.

Today is the day so many people will start new years resolutions. I am not really a big person for new years resolutions, but I do like to think of certain things I want to do for the next year. So here are my hopes for 2014.

I hope to spend to enjoy every moment I get to spend with  my husband, and have fun with him every day.

I hope to spend lots of time with family and make unforgettable memories.

I hope to stay in touch with all of my friends whom I love.

I hope to read new books.

I hope to continue learning about all aspects of life.

I hope to be a good teacher to my students.

I hope to be healthy, challenge my body, and try more nutritious foods I have never had before.

I hope to grow closer to the Lord and to seek His will for Ryan and I.

I hope I get better at reading my Bible every day.

I hope I become a better wife to Ryan.

I have a lot of hopes for the new year, but sometimes what we hope for doesn’t always come true. That’s okay because I trust and have faith that God has a plan for 2014, He knows exactly what is going to happen, and He is going to be there for me through it all. That is enough to get us all excited about a new year! I hope you all have a fabulous day, and I hope you can enjoy today with the ones you love!
