This is one of my favorite scenes from one of my favorite movies.
(If you're not a fan of Garden State, I'm sure we can still be friends as long as we keep our opinions to ourselves.)
Seeing that it's New Year's Day and all, it seemed appropriate to spend today's post on "glass half-full sh*t," so here we go:
1) We're wrapping up a holiday season full of redesigned or altogether new traditions, and there have been more fun moments than wistful ones;
2) There are so many good things ahead in 2017, like my fortieth birthday coming up next month and my oldest daughter starting her senior year of high school in the fall;
3) Friends and family give me reasons to laugh every single day;
4) And my children surprised me with roses as we sat down to dinner on New Year's Eve. Twenty minutes later they were all screaming and running through the house because the two oldest had squirted Redi-Whip in the youngest's hair, but still--we had a few sweet, thoughtful moments first.
"Progress, not perfection" is the name of the game around here.
I hope 2017 is off to a sweet start for all of you. Happy New Year!
