Daily Ramblings - Happy New Year! (A Recap)

Happy New Year to all of you!  I hope 2012 has started well for everybody.  :)

With the arrival of my parents from England a couple of weeks ago, it feels a little bit like all hell broke loose.  Despite being off work since Dec 21st (first day back today *sigh*), there was just so much going on!  Husband and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary in there somewhere (love you honey!) and then took off to Vegas for Xmas weekend with the family.  It's the first time that we had both husband's and my parents together for a holiday event, and it has to be said that it was very nice to have everybody in the same place at the same time.  We had some fun wandering around the casinos to check out their holiday displays, and also won a few bucks playing blackjack on Xmas Day.

So, here we are in a new year and I'm optimistic for wonderful things to come.  The last couple of years have been a serious roller-coaster and I'm curious to see what 2012 has in store.  Usually I write out a bunch of things that I'd like to do in the year.  In 2011, I accomplished a small handful of things and realized [sometime in November] that there was no way I'd ever get it all done!  This year, my goals are to experiment, try new things, explore and enjoy life...and I'm sure that by the end of the year, I'll have some amazing experiences and memories to cherish.
