When I married a Vietnamese, it didn’t cross my mind the unexpected bonus I would receive every year. No, not as in red envelopes, but the bonus of a second new year! So I have a second chance for all those new year resolutions that I was thinking about but have not yet attempted or already dropped. How great is that?! It gives me a chance to re-evaluate and hone on what is realistic versus what is idealistic. I LOVE the newness of January and all the fresh ideas it brings.
I haven’t done a personal post in awhile, so I’ve included some photos from our new year’s weekend, highlighting our little Ian of course. We took advantage of the long weekend to have a quiet retreat in the Napa mountains. We were married here, Mont La Salle, and so it holds a special place in our hearts. We make sure to visit here at least twice a year as it offers a much needed tranquil and peaceful escape from our everyday busy lives.
