A New Year Of Grace

Originally Jeff and I were going to go out for NYE to a fancy dinner. But we decided to cancel our reservations and stay home instead. I am really glad we did. Keegan got to spend the night w/ my parents as he had been asking. Harper hung out with us through our sparkling wine and first round of appetizers and then went down for the night. He slept until 6am and then went back to sleep until 7:30. And we had a romantic evening and kissed in the New Year. It was more of a goodbye to 2008. A year that brought us a new house, our sweet baby boy and opportunites to grow stronger as parents and a couple.

Resolutions so far:
1. Let in less poison (not the rock band).
2. Pursue goal of ice climbing, first start get back to yoga.
3. Pursue goal of balance, first start get back to yoga.
4. Deal with impending career crossroads by figuring out next steps.
5. Try to see things from Jeff's perspective more often.

At breakfast yesterday Jeff asked me jokingly to make some kind of sexual resolution. I won't be sharing that here. Don't worry Erika I won't torture you with it either ;)
