Happy 2013!

Happy New Year!

Today it is the beginning of a new journey - one I hope you'll join me on and one that will bring joy and be as much fan as last year's.

Today should be a day of "counting" the past year - I won't... because there are so many amazing things that happened, it will take me a month just to list all of them :) I will just give you a number: 51,000. That's the total pageview on this blog. If you recall, at the 1 year blogoversary I had 33,000. Which means in the past 3 months there were 18,000 more - at an incredible rate of about 6,000 per month! That's more than double of the 1st year and that, my friends, I find it amazingly wonderful. Thank you again!

Today should also be a day of setting resolutions - I won't... because I don't believe in them (and I have yet to find someone who didn't break all of their New Year's resolutions in the first 30 days of the year :)).

I will do something else: I will create the 'grateful jar' - a jar where my family will deposit a piece of paper every week, for the whole year with at least one thing we are grateful for-, thankful for- or simply wonderfully surprised by-. Next New Year's Eve we will read them and remember all the beauty in our lives! It's not my idea, I read it somewhere (don't recall where :( ) and I decided it sounds beautiful.

Wishing you all a Happy New Year: full of joy, sparkle, health, and happiness - with the best New Year song ever:


  1. No resolutions for me, either! I am doing a similar practice this year - a Blessings Jar! I read it on Alice Peterson's blogpost! Congrats on the success with your blog, and Happy New Year!

  2. Congrats Alicia! What wonderful news for you
