Now that we have a little guy we choose to stay in on New Year's Eve. Honestly I never really cared for going out and celebrating with everyone, although I do love the fireworks that Philadelphia puts on at midnight, but I don't love the drunken guys shouting in my ears or the frigid night air. So I take New Years eve as a moment to settle in with a nice pot of tea and 2 sheets of paper. One is to write a letter to my little guy about all the things that have happened in the past year. We are only on year 2 of this tradition but I hope to carry this through as something that I can give to my son when he is older.
The other sheet is to write a letter to myself about all the things I want to accomplish in my New Year. Last year that included starting my own business so I could continue to stay home with my son. This year this happened and so my new letter will have to include new goals and hopes for this coming year. I never place any time constraints but I find that at the end of each year the things which I have written down have almost always come to pass. The simple intention of setting my place for the new year makes these things stay with me and happen.
This year I think my letter will start off with some more business plans and some personal plans as well like a nice vacation to europe and maybe another little person in our life....so tonight I will be dreaming and kissing my sweetheart a midnight.
What are your New Year's dreams?
