Well 2014 started off a little rocky - stayed late at work to drink with my new co-worker friends but when it came time to call it a night my Jeep decided it was not ready to go. I didn’t let that get me down as I was still quiet excited to start a new year, a new chapter. So, that was followed by one more car issue, a polar vortex & a birthday. I decided that this year I would have a low key birthday happy hour but the vortex combined with my birthday being on a Tuesday didn’t work out. In the end I did have a small birthday happy hour & a fun evening with my family.
Going over my 12 for 14 - in January Hit success with 3, 6 & 7 50/50 with 2, 9 & 10 Need to work on 1, 4, 5, 8, 11 & 12 1. Read a book each month 2. Take 5-10 mins a day to learn to speak Italian 3.

Love this. Travel more.
Birthdays are an interesting time - some like to celebrate like Rick stars & some like to spend the day relaxing & reflecting. Over the years I have done a little bit of both. Today however I spent the day just being present not thinking about the past or setting expectations for the future. Living in the moment & spending time with my family was how I chose to spend my birthday. Thanks to my new job (who acknowledges your bday as a personal holiday) I was able to spend the day as I wish. 2013 had its ups & downs like any other year and so far 2014 has been quite the challenge. I’m really looking forward to this year & optimistic that the best is yet to come. Cheers!
Something to think about as today is my birthday - the beginning of a new chapter.
