Happy New Year!
It’s a brand new day, and a brand new year and before the guilt of that champagne and red bull force you to rehearse your health and fitness speech, let me stop you right there…I am in my PJ’s, on holiday, and totally planning on spending a few more days in vacation mode.
Even though I am not big on New Year’s resolutions, I have to admit, it’s one of my absolute favourite times of the year. Giving thanks for year that has gone and being able to dream for the one that’s ahead with a renewed sense of enthusiasm & zest is pretty awesome.
One of my guilty pleasures over the holidays is to schedule a few breaks throughout the year, to make sure Joe and I stay focused throughout the entire year, as well as take care of our marriage, health and general state of mind.
