Something about "new"...

There is just something about "new" that we all like.
You know, new appliances, new cars, a new house.
New is good.  I love new.
Don't get me wrong though.  I love a good bargain as much as the next mom.
In fact, I own several things that are gently used.
I would say that 75% of Alanna's wardrobe is from a resale shop.
Most of the things we buy (besides food of course) in our house is typically gently used.
I love craigslist!

But new....

I love the end of December because I know a new year is coming.

A new year to start over.  To forget all the things that did or didn't happen in 2010 and move forward to the new things that will happen in 2011.

2010 is now the past.  Leave it there.
We can't change it anyway.

The pastor at our church just said recently that he thinks 2011 will be our best year yet.
I think I agree with him.

I am ready for a good year!  How about you?!?

P.S. I have been working on our 2011 goals and have decided that making goals for an entire year is WAY too much for me.  The only way for me to accomplish something is one small bit at a time.  So....I have decided to break it up by the seasons instead.  Look for "Spring Goals" coming up next week.

P.S. #2  Just because I can't help myself, and because my child is adorably adorable.  I will leave you with a picture.
Texting her friends...
