First things first. Happy New Year!!! I hope everyone had a chance to reflect on 2015 and spend some time with friends and family as we rang in 2016 last night. I didn’t have to look far into my reflection to find a happy memory, as I was told late yesterday afternoon that the Treats For Toys campaign I had been working on helped raise $40,000 for children in need this holiday season!
My family and I had a blast working with Kellogg’s Rice Krispies and the Salvation Army, creating and sharing our toy shaped treats, and I am so glad that we were able to have a small part in raising so much money for such a great cause. It is also possibly that I ate a few too many of the leftover chunks of Rice Krispies treats…
This campaign leads nicely into 2016 where my goal is going to be attempting to make the world a better place than I found it in. As much fun as I had in 2015, I still feel like it got away from me a little bit and I strayed from the original goals I had set when I started this blog. I am hoping this year to focus more on telling your inspiring stories in between sharing my own thoughts and experiences.
None of us truly know what will come with a new year but I always found having a game plan is better than having no plan at all! I wish you all the very best this year and thank you for continuing to join me on this ride!
