New Year, Same Thought, Best Family Memories

Why Some Don't Visit Utah in Winter...

Happy New Year to Everyone. I like to keep saying this right through to February. Really we should continue it into March when those of us in inclement weather have moved past the bleakness of winter and then don’t have to work so hard at being cheerful. This is more than Happy Holidays. The New Year is universal, it stretches across the landscape of time and place, religion and tradition. Everyone steps into a new year of the calendar. So here we are, at 2011.

I am sure I am not alone when I become focused on what I did and didn’t do last year, and what I want to do this year; it’s called Making Resolutions. If you want some helpful clues about setting your goals for 2011, you might like this: http://margiewarrell.com/category/blog/

What are your resolutions? Where are you going in 2011?

I have had the best time over the last week listening to our families tell their stories of holiday adventure with their children and loved ones. Some made new friends and new discoveries on their exotic Thomson Family Adventure travels – and some just stayed home. A few were stuck in airports :( Boston shoveled out from two feet of snow!

But isn’t it glorious to slow down and appreciate where we are. Even if this year wasn’t your best family memory, I bet you talked about when that was, as you reminisced them all.

I love having all of our family adventures to remember, those involving travel and those that hit unexpectedly at home. And I love there will be new ones to look forward to. For me, 2011 is the year my youngest graduates from high school. Don’t worry, I’ve been assured the family travel isn’t over yet – my kids have the travel bug, and we still have many places to discover in this big bold world we live in.

So for now I am considering my resolutions, and planning for our next fabulous family adventure. Oh, and the next snowstorm, due tomorrow. Maybe even another two feet!

What are your resolutions? Where are you going in 2011? Share!
