Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!  I'll admit that New Years' is my least favorite holiday.  Call me a party-pooper (Go for it.  I'll wait.... done?!), but being single takes a whole lot of joy out of New Years'.  Like I need a party to remind me that I'm departing one year and bringing in a new year SINGLE...while surrounded by kissing couples.

Anywho.  I do wish you all a very, very Happy New Year!  I hope that you have someone to kiss as the ball drops.

I'm not making resolutions this year.  Instead, I have a few "wishes".  For both you and I!

I wish us:
  • Joy. The ability to see the joy of the little things even on really bad days.
  • Health. I wish everyone a hospital-free year (except for those of you having babies!).
  • Love. The love of finding your other half. The love of your parents, siblings, children, friends and extended family.
  • A career/job you really enjoy! Doesn't matter if it's as a SAHM, doctor, teacher, etc.  I hope you are where your skills lie, you feel appreciated, and you can't help but smile every morning at the prospect of another day on the job.  :-)
  • Perspective.  (A weird one, I know!) I want you us to realize how lucky we truly are. We have a roof over our heads, food to eat and most of the time our biggest worries are either paying a bill a few days late or concern over sitting in traffic too long.
Now, go on out there and make this the best year yet!!!


  1. Happy New Year sweet friend! Perspective is a beautiful thing. I'll take a ton of it as we begin 2012!

  2. My wish for you is that your hopes and dreams come true for 2012.

  3. Happy New Year to you as well! Those are great wishes! :)

  4. Hope you have a very happy 2012! Those are some really good wishes. I'm fairly confident I have all of them, except the job satisfaction one. Ugh. That is one of my goals for the year, new job, or new attitude about the old job.

  5. I hope you had a fabulous NYE!! Being single isn't a bad thing. I'm sure you'll find your true love!

  6. Awesome post! I was single for 9 years after a divorce, and my motto was always "I would rather be alone than wish I was alone." I did get lonely and remember feeling the same way you do on NYE. I love your wishes for yourself and everyone else. You have a GREAT attitude~\!!

  7. I love this post - thanks for wishing us all such great things!! I hope you have all the same in 2012! :)

  8. Great post!!! I love that you added perspective to the list!

  9. hello Cole,

    a very happy 2012 to you and we wish you the very best too..... it's been a long time since we've visited
