It has taken me over a week to kick off my blog this year and talk about plans, resolutions and all that good stuff.
As much as I hate to say it, this year started off on an "unhealthy" note for us, with Iggy getting a bad stomach virus on January 1st and then BOTH girls getting Strep within the same week. Then, as much as I tried to remain healthy for the well-being of our family, I ALSO got sick with bronchitis and I'm still getting over it. So needless to say, even with my disposition to blog ever present, it has been a very rough few days!
We spent New Year's Eve/Day in Tampa with some of my in-laws who were visiting from different parts of the world. We stuck to our Venezuelan tradition and had some delicious food and ate 12 grapes at midnight..it's always fun to see how to girls take to our roots and follow our holiday traditions.
The girls spent some time with their cousin Isabella who lives in Ohio. It was great to see them playing and having so much fun together!
Our typical Christmas dish (includes Hallacas, ham bread, roast pork and a salad)...it was very delicious!
So, because I'm not one to make huge resolutions (I rarely stick to those!), I will write down my intentions for the year instead. To me, 2015 will be the year of healthy eating, money saving, spiritual growth and appreciation. I intend to take better care of my body by eating less sugar/fat; I also plan on learning (and teaching my kids) to appreciate everything I have and everything I am capable of doing.
I hope this is also a year of traveling (when is it not!? LOL!), family adventures and self improvement. As cliche as all of these "intentions" sound, they are really all I need to focus on. I want to be more patient, more caring and definitely more understanding.
Cheers to a wonderful 2015!
