It’s the start of a new year and I’m really excited about 2013. There are some good things in the works. As for resolutions, we didn’t make any officially. But there are definitely things I’m going to work on, starting now.
Juicing has been a huge part of our lives for an entire year now (since Jan 2012) and something we both are looking forward to continuing. We’re also both eating a lot healthier than we were before.
To kick off the year, I am working on two personal goals right now: managing my (probably really high) stress levels and taking better care of the apartment (hello Pinterest and Apartment Therapy!) I think getting this together will help both of us a lot.
So to start my efforts toward a less stressful lifestyle, I began with a lavender salt bath after work on Wednesday night. So relaxing. The apartment is in a really good place right now because I cleaned it, from top to bottom, before we left for the holidays. Hello 2013, here we come.
On New Year’s Eve, we went to Killington. It was a little trickier to navigate, particularly because the trails all intersect one another but also because the conditions weren’t that good- it was really windy and snowing. You couldn’t see more than thirty feet in front of you.
This time, I tried the GNU Pickle snowboard (48, which was kind of long for me). Gavin had a LibTech (59, kind of short for him). I also had my camera strapped to my chest the whole day to get some action shots.
There was a mad dash to the showers that night. Everyone was getting fancied up for New Year’s Eve. At the barn, the party was already beginning around 7pm with appetizers on the pool table. Gavin got into the festive spirit.
We all gathered back in the house around four large tables. As anticipated, the dinner was amazing. Gavin’s plate was much more interesting than mine, as he also had chicken and fillet mignon – not just salmon.
Afterward, Gavin and I were really tired and considered going to bed like the rest of our friends. Instead we rallied and made it well past midnight, partying it up with some brand new friends from the house.
It was our loose interpretation of auld lang syne. Happy New Year.
