Mota-Vational Quotes

  • "Life isn't about how to survive the storm but how to dance in the rain!"
  • "The happiest people don't always have the best of everything, they just make the best of everything they have."
  • "Every morning in Africa, a Gazelle wakes up. It knows it must run faster than the fastest lion or it will be killed. Every morning a Lion wakes up. It knows it must outrun the slowest Gazelle or it will starve to death. It doesn't matter whether you are a Lion or a Gazelle... when the sun comes up, you'd better be running."

Happy New Year 2011!

Wow how quickly time flies! I can not believe I'm already blogging about 2011! 2010 was an absolutely amazing year for us. So much to be thankful for! We are looking forward to lots of fun in 2011! We definitely started it off with a good time! Around 3pm on New Years Eve Stephen and I decided to have an impromptu get together! (I'm learning this is totally our style). So we told some of our neighbors that we ran into throughout the afternoon to come by after dinner to watch the ball drop. We weren't sure if anyone would show with the late notice, but we ended up having a pretty good turnout. This was after an exciting dinner experience! We had early reservations so we could make it home in time for our guests. Well, Stephen and I invited Steph and Gene to go with us. To make a long story short, we sat at the restaurant for 2 hours before we even got a salad! We ended up having to get our food to go so we could make it home in time for people to come over. It was not ideal, but made for a good story. Stephen and I said, "If this is the worst thing that's happened to us in 2010, it's been a pretty good year!" We made it home in time to ring in the new year with some of our fun neighbors! Preston was a champ! He slept through the party, woke up for a midnight kiss from momma and daddy and went right back down for the night. It was great! He's such a little stud! Can't wait to see what 2011 has in store for us!
