New Year’s Eve is probably one of my favorite holidays. Whether it’s spent in fancy clothes or comfy pajamas, whether we’re drinking champagne with friends or making smores at home in the microwave, the year still comes to an end…and a beautiful new one begins.
If we’re lucky, we will have 365 more chances to live our dreams.
The new year gives us the opportunity to reflect…to release old thoughts, to let go of self-limiting beliefs, and to forgive old hurts. The new year also brings fresh beginnings, exciting new experiences, and the promise of new connections.
“Every time you tear a leaf off a calendar, you present a new place for new ideas and progress.”

NEW YEAR’S RESOLUTIONS
Last year LH and I decided to skip the new year’s resolutions. Instead, we came up with a theme for the year: FUN!
We promised to spend our year in fun mode…we traveled as much as possible, we chose adventure over routine, and we celebrated our lives.
Choosing goals together that enriched our lives kinda took the pressure off the first year of marriage…and it brought us closer together.
In fact, it worked so well, LH and I have decided to stick with our new-found tradition of choosing a theme for the year.
For 2017, we are going to stick with the theme of FUN…and add in a little FOCUS.
FUN + FOCUS = 2017!
In true Hayes style, we had to end 2016 in FUN mode! However, this year we decided to skip the stress of the city and celebrate New Year’s Eve in the ‘burbs! #thisisthirty
First stop was downtown Plano, and then we headed to our favorite local restaurant Seabreeze Fish Market & Grill.
Thanks to Mercedes-Benz of McKinney, we kicked off the year in style.
Choosing a theme for the year is an easy way to filter our experiences and stay true to the life we want to live.
Join us in choosing a theme for the year that enriches your life.
What will yours be?
Grateful for the past and looking forward to the promise of the future.
Happy New Year!
