new year, new blog.

A picture from New Year's 2015. We were in Key West. There were lots of daiquiris and no babies!
I love Christmas, but New Years Day might be my favorite holiday. Ever since I was a kid, I've always given New Years the pomp and ceremony I think it deserves. When I was young, I used to start a new journal every year and stay up until midnight to watch Dick Clark's Rockin' New Years Eve, and then I'd lay in bed and write my first entry of the new year. I'd recap my year and write out my resolutions for the coming year and I'd wake up the next morning feeling energized by the possibility of a whole new year ahead of me. 

I haven't changed much. I still get giddy at the blank canvas of a new year; all the promise and hope of a new beginningI still think New Year's Eve is magical and sleeping through the countdown to midnight is an absolute cardinal sin in my book. 

And in the spirit of the new year and new beginnings, I'm making some changes to the blog. I love this little corner of the internet so much and I love sharing my joy and my heartache and my silly stories. What started out as a way to keep family and friends updated about our life as we moved from home and started out military life has grown into a place where I can share a little bit of my heart. (And every warm response to one of my posts has meant the world to me. Thank you!)

So I'm putting the blog under construction this week and by New Year's Day, I hope to have her back up and running. Not only will I have a new look, but a new name as well! And in anticipation of the blog's fresh look, the song below is a little clue about the new name. 

I hope your holidays are full of joy and you close out 2015 with the people you love most. I'll see you all in 2016!
