It's a new year, and everything starts afresh. Makes me think of Anne, "tomorrow is a new day, with no mistakes in it... yet." So instead of taking the dreary approach that January is a month long Monday, I've decided to make the best of it. Family going home, icy cold weather and whatever else it may bring... like the mole we just found stuck in our pipes intercepting all water to our holding tank... it's going to be good.

"People are just as happy as they make up their minds to be" -Abraham Lincoln.

I've been asked several times if Santa was good to me this year. I'm assuming they mean gifts, but in reply I say, "yes, my whole family was here." I'm so thankful I had Christmas with all seven of my siblings, my brother-in-law, nephew, parents, grandpa and two aunts. It was a full house, but an amazingly blessed one at that. My siblings are my best friends, which makes it even harder when you have to say goodbye. There's the hopes in we'll all be living close by each other with our own families someday... somewhere along the south coast. But for now, whether they be two hours to halfway across the world from me, I just have to deal. And go visit them... Florida in (most likely) February, and Denmark in June. This year I am going to travel.

In the meantime... I have Josh to take care of me. I told you I would get to that man, didn't I? We've been together for almost six months now, and he's proven to be nothing short of amazing to me. The crazy thing is, I know it is only going to get better.

"Love gives you wings. It makes you fly. I don't even call it love. I call it Geronimo. When you're in love, you'll jump right from the top of the Empire State and you won't care, screaming "Geronimo" the whole way down." -Conspiracy Theory
