Happy New Year!


Hello!

Happy 2015!  Yeah I know were half way into the month but I needed a little while longer to get organized!

Have you noticed I've been absent from Somerset Lane?

Last I left you, we had sold our house and we were moving to a new one, after only a year and a half of moving the last time. I've informed the family, we will not be moving again. At least not for the next 10 years. #famouslastwords

Anyways, we're all moved in now.  Older kids are settled back into school routine, getting ready for exams.  Our little guy, Anthony, is at a new school. Which is just a short walk away. I shared this pic on Instagram the other day... 
It's literally to 2 minutes up the walk way and back down. We are loving walking to school everyday.

The inside of the house is slowly getting organized, bit by bit.  The rooms are getting painted, and we are finding our way around this new home of ours.  I can't wait to show you the changes that we have made already.

For now I want to share you some more pics from Instagram of our lovely backyard which backs out into the woods. It's obviously covered in snow, but imagine the summer time.  I CAN NOT WAIT!


We are really enjoying our new our home and the woods behind us.  Even the cat has been hanging out with us. In our last house he rarely came out of the rec room in the basement.

I think this year is going to be a great year, and not just because of the new house and new neighbourhood but also, because I have decided THAT I WILL MAKE IT A GREAT YEAR.

Everyone seems to have a word that they choose to represent their year, and I'm the same.  This was my word last year, and this year I choose Colour and Happiness. I guess that is technically two words.

I want my world to be surrounded in colour - happy colours.  Since I lost weight last year I've been updating my wardrobe and I've been consciously choosing  bright colours  instead of my usual uniform of black, grey and white.

I am also going to choose to be happy every single day.  After all it is a choice, right? When we get out of bed, we can choose to be happy or grumpy.  I choose Happy because I know it will influence how the rest of my day will go as well as anyone I encounter.

So there you go, a quick update after a few months hiatus.  I'll be back soon to share the new house pics, and a big announcement, and I guess we have to celebrate that I have been blogging now for 3 years.

It's good to be back. Missed you guys!

Did you choose a word this year? Do you make any goal for the new year? Talk to me, what's new with you?
