Auld Lang Syne

Today is December 31, 2012.  It's the last day for a leap year, an extraordinarily long year.  Tonight, we all will band together as each of our respective time zones celebrates a new beginning, a fresh start.  Some people will be like me, and will postpone their diet/fitness/healthy resolutions until the 2nd, because they know that hangovers and healthy eating don't work. 

However, there is another resolution that I am making this year.  Starting tomorrow, and going through the end of January, I am resolving to write myself a little note of encouragement on a post-it note, and then stick it somewhere I will see it.  I will take a picture and post it on Instagram for all to see.  You can follow my instagramming adventures at @RadiantKristen.  I hope you'll join me, and take this challenge for yourself as well, and tell me how it works out for you.

There have been times when this year has been a complete and utter mess.  However, it is the brilliant, beautiful, poignant mess known as life.  We can't always count on it to work out the way we want it, and for those times, there's wine.

But when you have family and friends nearby, life will always work out exactly as life is supposed to be.




I sincerely hope that this new year brings you more joy than sorrow, more laughter than tears, and more friends than enemies.  And always know that you've got a friend in me for life.
