goodbye 2011

there is something so exciting about a new year. maybe it's waiting for the clock to strike midnight. 
the anticipation of a new years kiss. setting new goals and a clean slate. i am a resolute
the hope that new things can happen and change. getting glamoured up to ring in the new year fresh.
