As I make my resolutions and look forward to my personal renewal in the upcoming year, I've chosen to reflect on what 2012 has brought to light and give thanks to the many things in life that make life worth living.
Cheers to you my friends...
Here's to Diet Coke. My world revolves around you.
Here's to the entrepreneurial spirit so alive and well in the USA that allows me to actively pursue my dreams on a daily basis.
Here's to those who don't try to stifle such dreams.
Here's to Christian Grey. Enough said.
Here's to the remote start and heated seats in my Jeep for keeping my bum warm when it's 15 degrees outside.
Here's to Matt Lauer for being so easy on the eyes every morning.
Here's to Summertime in Northern Michigan.
Here's to my father for teaching me about the stock market and how to invest appropriately for the future of my family.
Here's to my hair stylist who makes me feel super human 6 days of the year.
Here's to YouTube for making songs like "Gangnam Style" popular and allowing the novelty ridiculous dancing saga to continue.
Here's to the dedicated college student who although is faced with minimal opportunity post graduation, gives me hope that the next generation running our country won't be entitled assholes.
Here's to football season and three months of fun-filled Saturdays.
Here's to reality television and the platform for success it gives to so many.
Here's to the weatherman to which has the only occupation where 100% margin of error will still allow you to keep a job.
Here's to bubble baths.
Here's to Target. What did we do before Target?
Here's to summer days and nights spent on the porch creating memories and sharing stories with great friends.
Here's to the Stay-At-Home-Moms/Dads who have the most unrecognized and under-appreciated job known to man.
Here's to our school teachers who are growing, molding and, influencing OUR children while sacrificing time with their own children.
Here's to the men and women serving our country, risking their lives daily to keep us safe and protect our freedoms.
Here's to the families and loved ones of all those wrongly taken in tragedy this year. God bless you all.
And on a personal note...
Here's to my daughter who gives me purpose I couldn't live without.
Here's to the one and only man in my life (for another few weeks when baby #2 arrives). Thank you.
I wish you all the happiest and healthiest 2013!
