New Year's Day.

I am grateful for so much... health, prosperity, love, happiness, joy, friendship.

The start of a new year reminds me to consider gratitude more frequently, to contemplate more fully the goodness that happens around me every day.

Last night we saw our first movie at Alamo Drafthouse - Les Miserables. The entire experience was exceptional, from ordering and picking up tickets, to the theaters, the food, the drinks, the film - all exceptional.  A marvelous way to usher in the new year.

This morning it was eggs and oatmeal, Starbucks, then some shopping at Zona Rosa.  We both got shirts.  Can never have enough shirts, can you?

The afternoon was spent making dinner - braised short rib ragu, served over gnocchi. Paired with a spinach, pineapple and strawberry smoothie and Project Runway All-Stars. Divine.

No gym today, at it was closed for the holiday. Really looking forward to sweating tomorrow.

Now, it's an iPad, a Snuggie, a cheesy movie (1995's Hackers) and a warm cat.

Life is good. So much to be grateful for.

Some resolutions...

Be still.
Be active.
Be honest.
Be grateful.
Be extraordinary.
