A New Year

What have you been up to this year?

We rung in the New Year with great friends. We ate, laughed, played games and sipped Champagne till midnight!

I did a quick trip to Sun Valley, Idaho, spending a few days at my son-in-laws parents snow house. It is such a quaint little town and even though there isn’t much snow this year, the mountain views from their home are GORGEOUS. I just adore my daughter’s mother-in-law and always love spending time with her. The highlight of the trip was definitely getting to see Beckett on skis!

Back at home it was time to take down Christmas.

I got a cold:(

I’m glad to share that over the holidays I’ve been able to maintain my weight loss. I’ve recently gotten rid of all my “fat” pants and just bought a pair of jeans in a size 8. I honestly think they run a little big, but I’m comfortably wearing a 10 and I haven’t done that in years (and years and years). I still hope to lose another 10 pounds.

I’ve been busy busy busy trying to organize and clean my house. I feel overwhelmed by the amount of “stuff” we have. I guess that’s what happens when you raise your family and truly live and enjoy life in your home. I’ve sorted, organized and cleaned, not to mention a couple of runs to Goodwill and tossing out (too many to count) trash bags. I hope by posting this here and on FaceBook that I’ve encouraged a few of you to do the same.

This week I’ve been living by the motto………if in doubt, toss it out. I hope you’ll do the same.

And because a post isn’t a post without a photo, here’s the Sun Valley Barn (taken at dusk).
