Favorite Things for 2014


I love January.  It’s a fresh start.  It’s a new begining.  It’s a second chance.  Okay, enough with the cliche’s, you get the point.
But seriously, it’s a chance to finally ‘let go’ of all of the above. A time to embrace the joy in life. My New Years Resolution was to be grateful for all that I have and to live life with as much of the 10 to Zen that I can.
Although I did get everything I wished for for Christmas; family, food and a Kuerag coffee machine, I still enjoy gazing, marveling at and admiring all the beautiful things life has to offer. Warm coats, NFL jocks, good books, the assorted bling. What else can you ask for?? So without further discussion (well, maybe a little), some of my favorite things for 2014.
