I am not bubbling over with post-holiday cheer. I'm exhausted from all the driving to see family and feeling fat and bloated from eating all the FOOD the holidays are made of. It was great to see my grandma, my parents, sisters, nieces, nephews and cousins. New hubby, Kevin, fit in famously with the family. My favorite non-material gift given in December was a love note written to Kevin on our three-month anniversary.
Over Christmas we announced to family that we are moving to San Francisco the end of January. We are selling or giving away EVERYTHING we own, and making a new start. Thank God for great friends, who are helping us with housing the first couple months while Kevin finds work. I am feeling stressed about the move, but excited to let go and take the leap into something new.
SOMETHING NEW is our giving theme for January. This month, try something NEW each day. Make 2012 your best yet by leaving the past behind and diving headfirst into the new--with new gifts, new intentions, new friends and new adventures. Here are 29 giving ideas that may be new to you. Please share your ideas and experiences here or in your 29 Gifts Blog to inspire and motivate your fellow 29Gifters.
Don't forget to RSVP for the 29 Gifts Community Event, Jan 29 Big Event: New Year, New Beginning. Share your new intentions for the year.
