Happy New Year to everyone. We made it through the holidays and are back from vacation getting adjusted to our normal routine.
We went to Alabama for the new year and spent time with Mike's parents. We go every year and always look forward to the trip. It is a little get away where we spend lots of family time together relaxing and doing some things in the south that we can not do in Michigan this time of year.
The weather there is warm enough to go outside so the kids love being able to play. The ice cream man came around the day after Christmas and we ate ice cream outside. That seems so crazy to me since Michigan is about 5 degrees right now.
While on vacation I did some shopping, lots of cooking of course and lots of relaxing. I came back with a couple new cookbooks with new recipes to try. I also did some reading on organizing tips.
So, here it is. My New Years Resolution...the year of giving away instead of getting.
Our family has made a resolution to give away 2015 things this year. Sounds like a lot but really it is only 6 things a day.
I started as soon as I got home by cleaning out my closet. I have so many things that I don't wear. Why am I holding on to these things when someone could actually get some use out of it.
After I am done with the closets I am going through the kids toys, then working to the kitchen and then each individual room in the entire house.
I am pretty excited about this. I am really going to do it. I want to have less and enjoy the things we have more.
Did you make a resolution this year?
