Last year, Adrian declared 2013 the year of the Arvizus. Some monumental events occurred and 2013 filled my heart with more hope than 2012 would have ever thought possible. So since Adrian called it last year, I'm calling it this year: 2014 is the year of the Arvizus, part two. And because I love even numbers and because being hopeful seemed to work out last year, we're sticking with the theme of yes.
Adrian and I wrote out some detailed resolutions/goals together for 2014, but I wanted to write out a few quick "this is the direction I want to head in" thoughts for me and maybe even this blog. 2013 was a big year for responsibility and hard decisions and getting our health on track and all those adult things. And while those are great and we'll continue, I don't want to entirely toss out that little joys side of me.
You know, the side that likes confetti. And bright colors. And mini champagne bottles.
So here's to celebrating and balloons and glitter everywhere and fresh flowers and being bold. To developing talents and following my loves. To enjoying time with my husband and my family and that tiny baby niece that I just adore. To making dreams happen. To traveling. To guarding Saturday mornings for coffee and thoughts. To going out with girlfriends.
And to continuing to make good, grown-up decisions. And celebrating those decisions with confetti, of course.
