Is that print just stellar? I found it on pinterest :)
Its simple yet inspiring words are what I'm centering my New Year's Goals around.
BELIEVE THERE IS GOOD IN THE WORLD:
I am going to do better to see good in the world...to see good in people...to see the Child of God in the those I love and in the strangers I meet.
BE THE GOOD:
I am going to have a more forgiving heart...I am going to be more dependable...I am going to be a more thoughtful wife...I am going to be a more attentive mother...I am going to smile more...I am going to help others feel the love of their Savior.
I am not expecting to master those goals over night (wouldn't that be nice;)...but I do have high expectations for myself of trying each day to do better and be better. Thankfully I have the best partner in the world, and I can't wait to go over our specific goals and discuss how we'll help each other make them happen. This next year with Adam is going to be incredible. Our little boy Brooks will turn 2 (two!) and we'll be adding another sweet babe into our family...who knows what else 2012 will hold for us. I can't wait to find out :)
Now for a little bit of our New Years Celebration! We said goodbye to 2011 at home sweet home :) The first of the night was just the 3 of us...perfection. We made pear & gorgonzola pizza, said "cheers" as we clinked our glasses of sparkling grape juice, snuggled, and I enjoyed kisses from both of my boys :) Then a little after 11pm my parents and 2 of my sisters pulled in from their drive from Washington! We were able to enjoy Nutella on toast then stuff 12 grapes in our mouth at midnight, for good luck of course...followed by a few rounds of Balderdash and the girls stayed up to watch "Ever After" (a favorite among us sisters)...
It was so wonderful to ring in the New Year with Adam and some of my family!
Wishing all of you a BRIGHT NEW YEAR!!! :)
And tomorrow Brooks and I are driving with my fam (Adam has to work, we'll miss him!) up to BYU-Idaho to help take Corrie and Celeste to school for the winter semester. I'm so excited!! Celeste is a freshman at college, and oh she has some amazing things ahead of her. :)
