Confucius Says: Happy New Year!

Sunny skies, snowy beach, clear head, happy heart....welcome 2013!

Happy New Year, friends! This visit back home is flying by and Canada has spoiled me with my favourite people and beautiful winter wonderlands. Exactly what I wanted for the holidays.

One of 2012's last outings: boardgames and treats at Snakes and Lattes

One of 2012’s last outings: a fabulous afternoon at Snakes and Lattes.

I’m not really one for resolutions — I like setting goals but that happens sporadically.  To be honest, my new year’s resolutions haven’t changed much since 2002. But as I mulled over my seemingly endless amount of potential resolutions this morning, this quote popped into my head and made me smile.

It sounds cliché, but I think this is what I am adopting as my mantra for 2013.  A nervous traveler I may be (sometimes!), and a self-described homebody for sure — but this is my goal:  wholeheartedly, optimistically, adventurously, and kindly, enjoy 2013. I hope you do, too. Peace and love!
