Happy New Year!!

I spent my New Year's Eve closing my restaurant.
Got home at 12:01 to find my snoring husband, 
who was experiencing flu-like symptoms,
snoring on the couch...
But, my spirits had been lifted as I listened to the 
Glee Christmas Album on my half-hour drive home. :)
(Thanks, Mom!)
I am planning on a major post about resolutions 
and musings on what has been and what is yet to come,
but for now, I just want to say

I have decided to stop comparing my successes and/or struggles
to anyone else' focus on MY journey. :)
I just finished Portia de Rossi's book, 
Unbearable Lightness, yesterday (thanks, again Mom).
This quote really captured what I had been thinking about lately...
focusing on becoming the best ME that I can be.

"True nobility isn't about being better than anyone else; 
it's about being better than you used to be."
-Wayne Dyer  


  1. New Year's Eve should be about what makes you feel good. If you comforted your husband,then you gave your heart. Now that's what is important!!

    Happy New Year!

  2. Well, I stopped to get him orange juice and nyquil or I would have made it home to see the ball drop...that's gotta count for something. :)
    And, yes, he really likes the Red Sox jersey I got him. He has been wearing Bruins and Patriots stuff pretty much everyday since they are in season. :) But it'll be Red Sox season soon. :) HAPPY NEW YEAR!!

  3. Great post, Crystal. I love that quote. I'm glad you enjoyed the glee album and I'll look forward to hearing more about the book. I can't believe you finished it already!
    Hope K's feeling better!
    Love you,

  4. Happy happy HAPPY New YEAR, sweet Crystal! I hope your new week is off to a wonderful start. Enjoy joy joy the new day, the new week, the new month, the new year ^_^
