Ten Favorite Things about the New Year

Grab button for Endlessly BeLoved

I recently discovered Brianna and her fabulous blog, Endlessly Beloved. If I had a goal as to what my blog would look like, her's would be the model.

This is my first ever link up so...hoping all goes well.

one. New year, new start. It feels like a clean slate. You can be whoever you want to be and do whatever you want to do.

two. Ringing in the new year. Fireworks. A kiss at midnight. Champagne. The works!

three. Cold weather. Pretty much guaranteed even in South Louisiana!

four. Watching the ball drop on TV--and hopefully one day in person!

five. Positivity. With resolutions (see mine here) mostly consisting of how to be a better person, everyone starts on a positive note and is relatively in a good mood.

six. New year's lunch/dinner with the family. A bit of a tradition in my family to eat black eyed peas and cabbage (as I'm sure is the case with most people) and I love spending time with the fam.

seven. New month--even if you don't have a new calendar. Flipping the page in my planner makes my heart happy (every month, but especially with the new year).

eight. Planning. I love filling up my calendar and planning things I want to do in the upcoming  months.

nine. Writing a new year, even if I mess it up a hundred times!

ten. Reading everyone's goals and resolutions for the new year. I love seeing what other people hope to achieve in the upcoming year

YAY for the NEW YEAR!
