It has become a bit of a tradition for my family to spend the week between Christmas and New Years down on the coast of south Georgia, at my parents home in Sea Island, GA. Now, it is no secret to those who know me that I adore Christmas, but tradition of the beach is quickly rivaling my love of all things merry and bright. Aside from the obvious benefits of walks on the beach, salt air and lush south Georgia forests, this time has come to be a cleansing process for me. I look forward to the fresh austerity of January and the new year. In truth, the new year may just be a number change on the calendar, but treating it like a fresh start allows us all to try (and pretend) to be that better version of ourselves. That person who doesn't over indulge, who wakes up early, exercises more, drinks 8 glasses of water a day and gets more than 8 hours of sleep a night. I am working on my personal and professional resolutions, but for now I am going to soak in the beautiful beach, enjoy a nice dinner at home with my family on New Years Eve and ring in the new year blissfully asleep...that or up feeding my 6 month old.
Happy New Year to you all and thank you for reading. (PS one of my new years resolutions it to blog more...I promise.)
