I absolutely love the new year. It's not my favorite holiday - that's a secret to most - but I love an excuse to celebrate fresh new starts and fresh new perspectives. Every day is a new day, every moment is a new moment... we can create change, reflect, and create intentions on a regular basis but there is something about the new year that simply is a new start.
