the daily muse

a friend of ours sent us this photo the other day from a wedding in long island nearly four years ago. besides the fact that we're ridiculously good looking (kidding!), i can't stop looking at the damn thing. this photo proves my suspicion that i am indeed NOT getting any younger, and perhaps we both look better with longer hair. all joking aside, our lives were very different four years ago than they are at this very moment-- but at the same time, we were completely content and utterly clueless at what the future would hold.

oh, i threw in the photo of wiggins at eights weeks old because why not!? he looks exactly the same, god love him.

as far as i'm concerned the new year is just another calendar day and i rarely give it much thought. but this year ed and i sat down to dinner and asked each other what we want to accomplish in the new year. we have joint goals that are mostly ongoing (save more money!) and of course our own personal goals pertaining to work and such. but whether those goals are met or not, things are going to happen the way they are going to happen and it usually works out just fine in the end. looking back at this photo, we had no specific goals or plans for our future, but four years later i'm thankful to be where i am. things are going to change in the coming years whether you plotted it out at new year's eve dinner or not.

and with that, cheers to a new year!

Finally, a New Year's attitude I can get behind; there's so much you can't control anyway, so why not resolve to stay calm and see what life brings? Hoping that 2014 brings lots of laughter, love and Champagne your way!

I agree that it tends to be just another day. But why not welcome the invitation to reflect and set goals, right?!
