Things I am excited about

I adore new beginnings, so every new year excites me.  As we prepare to say goodbye to 2014 and embrace everything that 2015 has to offer, here is a list of things I am excited about right now....
*  I'm excited about turning 50 in January.  It's a big number but I am so ready for it, ready for the possibility and promise of a new decade.  I don't care too much about the wrinkles (hello botox!) and sags in all the wrong places; I'm opening my heart to greater wisdom and grace and the art of letting things go
*  I'm excited about January - spending time away at a game lodge with my family for my birthday, and then celebrating with friends and family a week later over tea and coffee and cake at an elegant venue
*  I'm excited about living a bit more simply in 2015.  I uncluttered and sorted and donated a lot of things throughout December and while this will always be an ongoing task, my home and my office now have more free space and less stuffed-to-overflowing cupboards. My friend Lynn is my inspiration - get in touch with her if you need help with uncluttering and organizing your stuff
*  I'm excited about redecorating my bedroom in 2015 - changing things up a bit from cream and pink, adding a pop of navy blue and moving things around a bit
*  I'm excited about working in my new office in a brand new building, with gorgeous views out over Johannesburg
*  I'm excited about travelling to Alaska in June with my friend Leonie - this will be a big tick on my bucket list
*  I'm excited about another year of scrapbooking with the Scrap Addicts

*  I'm excited about participating in the Documented Faith Project during 2015
*  I'm excited about eating better in 2015 and moving more after (possible) foot surgery early in the new year
*  I'm excited about seeing how Elizabeth and Katy grow and develop during 2015
*  I'm excited about learning more about God's word in 2015, going deeper with God, and standing in expectation of His blessings for me and my family and my friends
*  I'm excited about spending another year with my beloved Ruby
Go take a look at Cathy Zielske's list.  What are you excited about right now?
Wishing you a very blessed and joy filled 2015!
