I rang in 2013 with a few of my closest friends and one of my favorite places in Oregon. Any post-New Years Eve drowsiness couldn’t keep us away from a beautiful day of hiking in the Columbia River Gorge.
Neighborhood blocks lined with naked Christmas trees remind us that the holiday season has come to a close, and by now most of us are back in the swing of things…work is once again in full force, as is the hussle and bussle of our daily lives. But, before we sail through another year, I think it’s important to take these first few days to reflect and reenergize ourselves. I’m not really big on resolutions, but I do see the importance of being mindful of accountability and growth, so I have made a few goals for myself in 2013. My biggest goal is to stay happy and healthy, and DO what makes me happy and healthy (because, as I have learned recently, it’s never about what you say, it’s always about what you do).
2013 is bound to be full of new opportunities and exciting adventures. Here’s to an amazing year filled with great friends, delicious food, and lots of laughter. May this be the best one yet!
