Goodbye, 2012… Hello, 2013

I know I haven’t been posting much lately (not that I was a prolific poster to begin with), but I wanted to wish my readers a Happy New Year. I hope 2013 is a happy, healthy time for all of us.

There was so much heartache in 2012 — for us personally, for loved ones, for New Jersey and for the nation. And let’s not forget the “fiscal cliff” looming over us all.

But there were many blessings, too. Little Miss Frugalista is growing up before our eyes, expanding her vocabulary and becoming more and more like a little girl. We’re still employed, our home made it through the hurricane with minimal damage, and our little girl is happy and healthy. Can’t ask for more than that, right?

So Happy New Year, everyone. Celebrate safely!
