New Year New Goals:))

Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right.

Soon we will be heading into 2011.  Not sure how and where time has gone but it sure flies.
Chicago home:)

 2010 has been a good year for us.  We were finally able to get our apartment in Chicago something we have wanted ever since going there for the last 6 years.  We love it there and can't wait to go there again:)

Las Olas Home:)

 We were also lucky to have sold our condo on Las Olas.  This was good and also sort of bittersweet.  We do not regret the selling of the condo... was too big for us and with over 6K in expenses a month it was time to let it go.....

bird watching:)

We do not miss the condo itself, Arvid actually misses nothing of downtown.  I am the only one who misses the area we lived in, the convenience to everything and I really miss my friend Liliana.   Not only is she my friend  she also loves Brutus and took great care of him when we were not around which was more often than not.

loving it here:)

I don't get to see her that much anymore which is a shame because we are only about 30 to 40 minutes away from her.....but we don't go that way so often anymore:(

 2010 was also good in that we acquired some houses.  A new living experience for us (even though we both had houses of our own before).  Looking at Arvid you would think he was born to be in living in a house and not condo.  Both he and Brutus are super happy:)  I am working on it:)) 

As the year comes to a close we take stock in what we have.....we have each other and Brutus, we are healthy, we have our families, and we have a wonderful life.  We do as we please when we please and whatever we do we give it our best shot.  As someone said: Life isn't about finding yourself.  Life is about creating yourself.....

May 2011 be an even better year to all of you than 2010.  May all your troubles last as long as your New Year's resolutions...

Many people look forward to the new year for a new start on old habits...One resolution I have made, and try always to keep, is this:  To rise above the little things...


until next time....
