Happy 2018! I hope it's your BEST YEAR EVER!

I couldn't resist wishing you a BEST YEAR in 2018...I've been talking about BEST DAY EVER for, well, forever it seems and loving it. Last year was so filled with blessings and I just can't wait to see what 2018 has in store. I hope you feel the same. A new year offers so much promise, so many possibilities. 

One thing I don't do is resolutions. Instead, I like to dream. And dream big. Why not? My family and I spent the first moments of the New Year watching fireworks light up the sky, and the bridge, and the water, in Sydney, Australia. What a magical site and a beautiful bucket list trip. We felt blessed.

The next day, our family of six was scheduled to fly in a seaplane to a special lunch on an island. That morning, as we woke up we saw on the news that the same flight had crashed, killing all six on board, including the pilot and a family of five. We were all stunned, and so sorry for the British family, of course. 

The tragedy was a reminder, of course. One day earlier, it could have been us. So this year, each day, I'm going to try to live life as if it could end at any moment. Because it could. It can. One day, it will. It's a wonderful life and we're all so lucky to be living here, now, together. I hope your New Year is off to a great start, that you remember to count your blessings and live each precious day to the fullest. I'm going to try to do the same. It is a wonderful life.
