Hello, everyone!!! I'm finally back on. This past week has been so great for me. Although I didn't do anything crazy for New Years, in fact all I did was watch episode III of Star Wars, I had been thinking this week about what exactly I want to focus on this year as my "resolution". I've never really had one in the past and rather than a new beginning the whole year, I think that I'll be trying to make a resolution each day. We have a new beginning and new start every single day. I think that every day if you reflect on what mistakes you've made in the past 24 hours, it's easier to work on them. Even if you don't make a resolution every single day, I think it can really help all of us improve ourselves. I know my imperfections and I have a few things that I know I need to focus on.
In the midst of celebrating New Years, my cousin Charles got married! Their wedding was absolutely beautiful. My sister, mom, and I drove to Gilbert, AZ to attend the wedding and we all had such a great time. I think it was such a cool thing to see some of my family and just to all get together. Their wedding was on January 1st in the afternoon and I posted some pictures above if you haven't already seen them. I'm so happy for my cousin and his new wife Allie. The both looked incredible and I'm pretty sure all of the family was crying as we watched him say "I do".
While in Arizona, I was also able to be there to celebrate my cousin Maddy's 4th birthday. I was so happy to see her being that it's been a few years since I've seen her. She was so happy to have us and I loved being able to spend time with her finally. Her party was at a beautiful park that had all sorts of areas of playgrounds, water fountains, fields, etc. It was honestly such a lovely location and I was glad to be there with everyone.
As my first week of 2016 starts, I am so excited for this month and this year to bring more opportunities and a greater me. I hope you all had a fun and happy new year!
