My word for 2013: trust.
Because I am a planner. And as an ardent planner I like to be in control. However, I have no idea what this year will bring, and I am working really hard on being okay with that. No, not just “okay.” I want to embrace the possibilities and opportunities and welcome this new year with open arms and an eager outlook!
2012 was a wonderful year! Sharing a home with my sweetheart has been wonderful! Doing life together is awesome. Taking hold of my life and putting myself out there by volunteering at my current school was the best way to get a job I can possibly think of. Traveling to so many fun places to see family and attend weddings this summer was so much fun! We really saw some beautiful parts of the country – some we have seen before, some were new to us! Starting my teaching job in a marvelous little Montessori school here in Asheville has been absolutely the best! It is such an awesome feeling to leave work on Friday afternoon loving my job! And I feel so fortunate to have finished up the year spending time with family and friends. I am so blessed to be surrounded by such magnificent people!
2013 has started off safely. I am grateful for safe travels back home for Scott and myself. I drove back and he flew back yesterday. It feels so good to be home! Yesterday we relaxed and unpacked after arriving home, and today we had a lazy morning followed by a good hike and a bit more laziness with some laundry thrown in.
So far so great!

I want this to serve as my reminder this year to trust. To embrace the potential of this new year. To love with all of my heart, to dream with all of my imagination, to leap with faith into the next chapters of life!
