January 1, 2023

Time for the usual resolutions, as is the normal tradition. I’m keeping mine simple this year: my goal is to be a better person than I was in 2022. And 2021. And 2020. And…,you get the idea.

Of course, I have specific goals. Personal health measurements, athletic competitions, professional certifications, travel destinations….but I think I’ll share those in bits and pieces as the year goes on. But to all of you out there, I wish you the very best of everything in 2023. May your year be filled with success on every level.

Over their holiday week, I spent some time enjoying the sights and sounds of my town….

The Christmas tree at the end of the pier….
The southern view….
….and the view north of the pier…

Sometimes you need to take some time for yourself and soak in the moment. I also spent some time touring Disneyland a bit, as it tends to simply put me in a positive mood….

I’m stunned about how quickly the new Disneyland Hotel DVC tower is going up….
I noticed this during my walk in Downtown Disney: this gentleman has completed every Walt Disney World Marathon since its inception. #badass.
They leveled the movie theater and will upgrade the shopping space in the coming year. In the background is the for,er Paradise Pier Hotel – also now closed for a complete gut reno…
The tree in Disney’s California Adventure
Great views from the bridge to Pixar Pier.

I’ll post more shots in the coming days. But for now, I hope all of your New Year’s festivities were stellar!
