New Year's Resolution
I feel like this was a summer of family more than friends. We spent time with my brother-in-law and his wife in Charlottetown, spent many hours with my parents and brother around the pool, enjoyed a warm night by the fire with my in-laws, and then today we had a wonderful afternoon with Jonathan's grandparents and aunt and uncle from Texas.
Truthfully, I'm not overly sad that summer is ending. Yes, I enjoyed the warm weather and sunshine, but I love fall. I love the crispness of the air and I love watching the leaves change. To me fall is really when the new year begins - not January. For that reason I've decided that it's time for a "New Year's Resolution" of sorts.
I want this to be the year I get healthy. Not necessarily skinny (though that would be a bonus) but I want to feel better. I eat a lot of junk and then I tend to feel like junk. I want to eat better and exercise more. I want to have more energy so I can enjoy life more.
Happy New Year everyone. ;-)
