Happy New Year + Pictures!

Happy New Year!

How is your 2015 so far? Did you set goals? I personally am deeming 2015 the year of “doing things that feel good”. I plan on only doing things that are fun and that feel good to my body & mind. I’ve spent many, many years torturing myself with things that on the outside look healthy and perhaps ambitious but on the inside cause stress, injury and negativity. Do you do this too? Have you ever “pushed through” something to get it over with but didn’t enjoy the process at all? Something like intense training for an event, or plowing through college to get it over with, or putting your nose to the grindstone to accomplish some huge goal you set for yourself but the process made you miserable? (That figure competition I did back in the day comes to mind). Well to that I say, NO MORE! From now on I jut do awesome stuff all the time. 🙂

We can all thank Eckhart Tolle for that insight!

My husband and I just got back from a 12 day European vacation through Italy & France. Poor us, I know. It is a hard life. I started 2015 off drinking wine and eating cheese fondue in France, how is that for only doing awesome stuff?!

I could write a novel about the trip and how much fun we had and how much food we ate, but I will spare everyone!

Instead I will sum up our trip in 5 pictures!

1. Coffee

We drank TONS of coffee, all of it good, but the Italians do it the best.

2. Wine

We drank tons of wine too! I am still yet to find a white wine I don’t like, and believe me, I’ve been searching… 😉

3. Old, really neat buildings


4. Mountains


Lots of them, everywhere. Huge, majestic & pristine.

5. Being cold on mountains

We don’t have more than 3 photos where we aren’t bundled up in coats. Some days I wore 3 coats and snow pants just to walk around! The temps were around 10 degrees but much colder with the humidity and wind chill.

Not pictured: Gobs and gobs of chocolate, cheese, incredible food, raw beef I accidentally ordered (and couldn’t eat) and tons of tons of laughing.

My awesome Mother-in-law took on the task of caring for Rocco while we were gone. He is such a handful and has so much energy but luckily she loves dogs and has a really positive attitude! She did a great job capturing pictures of him while we were gone. Many are posted on Instagram-follow Rocco @ Rocco_the_minpin (his IG name is Rocco James).

Here is a photo of him from this weekend. He told me he wanted to look out the window and I do everything my dog tells me to do 🙂


Have a great week!
