For my birthday this year, James and I went to Colonial Williamsburg over New Year’s. We had a wonderful time! One of the best parts of this trip was strolling down Duke of Gloucester Street on Sunday morning, January 1. It was warm, maybe 60 degrees, and there was not a cloud in sight. The whole place was gleaming in sunlight. It was so quiet and peaceful. I’ll never forget it.
One of the interesting points of our relationship is that James is a morning person, and I wish I was. I always have a lot of energy after 6pm, and end up staying up way longer than I should and sleeping late. Whenever I do get up and experience a calm morning, I love it. One of the things I’m looking forward to in our marriage is having some help with going to sleep on time and waking up early.
I’m really looking forward to this new year (providing the Mayan’s are wrong, of course). I feel like I have a new chance now to start a whole new life. I want to write more, weigh less, and create more reasons to smile. We’re already making plans to go to Philadelphia, Williamsburg, and hopefully some beautiful warm place for our honeymoon (if God answers our prayers and lets us get married this year).
2012 started with a peaceful morning in a beautiful place. I hope this warm feeling continues throughout the year.
