dear january...


Dear January,

You came and went as fast as I could say "Happy New Year." And as usual, you arrived with your routines and schedules... with your clean calendars and unmarked planners... just how I like it.

And although the calendar didn't stay clean for long... you are always a breath of fresh air, with your untarnished goals and resolutions.

Not to be outdone by 2011, you decided to make a statement early in the year for 2012... filling up the calendar with a mix of business and pleasure... audit work... back-and-forth trips to Atlanta... new counseling classes at church... doctor appointments... hotel stays... company dinners... new goals... lunches with girlfriends... a new sofa... lots of packing... rental cars... less soda... and big life lessons...

January, thank you for being awesome.

Love,

Julia

I love all the newness and empty calendar space of January too. January lingered pleasantly for me though. It was a nice change of pace from my busy December. Bring on February, I'm ready!
