My 2013 will start with a breath and a whisper; to be the best person I can be... for myself, my husband, my daughter and the world. It's a tall order, but still, I will pursue my declaration with vigorous devotion every morning I have the pleasure to awake.
One of our favorite hikes before we had kids is this great trail in the Malibu mountains which leads you through meadows and over massive boulders, criss-crossing rivers and finally ends at a natural grotto. We finally brought the baby there this year. It was such a gorgeous day!

While my mother and brother were in town visiting for the holidays, we took a drive up to Lake Arrowhead to frolick in the snow! Vivi LOVED it...for about 15 minutes! Then she was ready to snuggle up with the pups by the fireplace, which was fine with us considering that's where the wine was!

Take the time to be still, to ponder, to reflect, to realize. Happy New Year!!!
