HAPPY NEW YEAR! Welcome first Monday of 2017! And let's face it, this has to be the most naturally motivating Monday of the year. A clean slate, 365 blank pages to write your own story and that's so exciting!

New Years Day is also my birthday so it's a double reflection time for me. I hope that you had a wonderful weekend ringing in the new year and also took some time to reflect on the past year. What was it about 2016 that worked for you and what didn't? What are you carrying into the new year and what have you chosen to let go of and most importantly what are your dreams for a fabulous 2017?

I'm making sure my 2017 is full of adventures so we started this first day of the year hiking up to Mt. Baldy for my birthday. We climbed in the snow, 3 miles up and back, jumped over creeks and I only slid on my butt once! (OK, twice if you count the black ice I didn't notice in the parking lot, ouch).

We ate lunch at the coziest throw back lodge with a roaring fire and chili just as hot. My favorite thing about living in California is how you can drive in any direction an hour or two and be in a completely different word. In this case from our sunny back yard to the snow in and hour and a half. Sharing some pics below.

In keeping with the theme of the blog this year, taking the everyday from drabulous to fabulous, I want to focus on the simple things that are so transformative. Sometimes it's just a matter of stepping out of our front doors and taking a walk. Never underestimate the power of Mother Nature, it's such a refreshing way to re-boot.
Happy 2017! May All Your Dreams Come True!
