If you're anything like me you've already picked out your planner for the new year, began filling in important dates, evaluated 2013 and created lists for 2014.

Sitting here tonight though, in a house filled to the rim with teenagers I've found my quiet place (it's been calling me) in front of the tree I'm not quite ready to let go of...realized I'm still holding on to Christmas.

Find a quiet place, take a deep breath, remind yourself of what's important and let's graciously bow out of 2013 and like a southern lady at an oyster roast who's never met a stranger stroll into 2014!
