My husband and I made a toast last night to our relationship. My pregnancy appropriate cranberry and sprite clanked against his fancy bourbon drink, and we giggled over the past five years spent together. Our resolution is to keep our itty bitty family strong, for all the years to come.

While he slept in this morning, I began thinking about relationships, and how they change over time. The lyrics to the ever popular New Years Eve song played through my head…

Should old acquaintance be forgot, and never brought to mind ?

Should old acquaintance be forgot, and old lang syne ?

For auld lang syne, my dear, for auld lang syne, we’ll take a cup of kindness yet, for auld lang syne.

The song asks us to remember our old friends, and to keep the bonds strong. This, I have decided, will be my second resolution. There are friends of mine who have moved away, or who I lost touch with over the years who mean so very much to me. So before our tiny baby enters the world, I’m going to make it a point to strengthen my relationships, for auld lang syne.

What are your resolutions, if any?
