And a Happy New Year.

Today is the first day of the rest of 2015. I like to think of it as a Sunday: a day of setting plans, resolutions, preparing for what lies ahead, resting from the heavy partying we swear never to do again.

Completed the 2014 1000- piece puzzle, with a little help from my friends.

This is a special year for me, though. For starters, I’m turning 30. Leaving my 20s behind seems like something I’ve been ready to do for a while. I feel like I’ve learned to cultivate a lot of self-acceptance in the past decade, and for that I’m really grateful. This will also be a year of changes, in anticipation of the Big Change that will come in 2016, when Alex matches into a residency program. The match may reveal that we have to move away. Because of this, 2015 will be fraught with uncertainty. But, uncertainty only means that I can be as open minded and adventurous as the occasion calls for.

In short, it’s time to prepare to move on with the next one. I’ve already gotten a head start on moving on to the next puzzle:

What does all this mean for A Bantam Belle? You will see a lot of action, a lot of fun and exciting posts, and most importantly, a lot more pictures documenting my adventures! I got a new Samsung NX3000 for Christmas from by wonderful husband and once I master the ins and outs of aperture, exposure, blah blah blah things should be looking pretty good around here.

So, here’s to living like it’s 2015.
