New Year, New Resolutions

Happy New Year to all of our friends and family! I am so excited to start out a new year and make new goals and resolutions. For some reason, after Christmas is over, I am ready for summertime! Although it's still super cold out, I love when the sun comes out and it just feels like a new start. Manuel's back in school for the winter semester and I am still working at the dental office. We've received so many blessings from the opportunities given to us this past year, especially through a tough economic time. I'm excited for a new presidency for this country and hope that things can really get turned around. It's been hard to see the many that have struggled with the pitfalls of what has happened recently and I only hope that we can see a light at the end of the tunnel even if it takes some time. As for my resolutions this year, here is a list of only a handful of things I'd like to work on, not in any particular order:

1. Eat more healthy, natural foods (Most people put losing weight as one of their top goals but I truly just want to have better, overall health in general)
2. Read the Book of Mormon in Spanish
3. Have Family Home Evening night more consistently
4. Attend the temple once a month
5. Make one special date night a week with my husband out of the house
6. Be a better wife, in general
7. Learn yoga
8. Deal with my stress in a positive way (exercise, meditation)
9. Plan a budget, save more, spend less
10. Keep my house cleaner
11. Sew more
12. Play my violin and the piano more, maybe even start teaching some

I could keep going but won't--it does feel good to set new goals though! Hope everyone started off to a good year and hope to also stay on top of this blog! Love to everyone!
