We said "Goodbye" to 2013 without a big celebration, everything we need and everyone we love under one roof was celebration enough for us. Not to mention we were all sick during the holiday season. Fighting off a vicious bug which attacked our family starting just before Christmas. It's New Year's Day and we all still have stuffy noses. 

Not really the way I wanted to ring in the new year. There was no real countdown to midnight, hubby and I were so exhausted from everything we actually were in bed watching a movie by midnight. We know how to party like rock stars, don't we? 

I woke up and welcomed 2014 with a positive attitude, despite being sick. A fresh page in my life long novel to start anew. A chance to put the past behind us and move on to better and brighter things. Another chance to grow, to learn and to succeed. 

To me a new year is more than making up silly resolutions I probably won't stick to for more than a couple of months. It's about setting attainable goals and working toward achieving them whether they be personal goals, career goals, financial goals, it doesn't matter as long as we stick by our initial plan from the get go.

I have my own personal goals, goals for my family and goals for my blogging life. With a little hard work and a lot of determination, it can be done or at the least we can say we tried. 

Here's to a year of health, wealth and happiness all around! Happy New Year 2014!
