Hot Springs, Arkansas the place I call home, and what a wonderful place it is! My beautiful city takes its name from the world-famous thermal waters that flow into the historic downtown district. About a million gallons of the 143°F water issue forth daily from 47 hot springs.   The city was named the nations first National Reservation in 1832 in order to protect the hot springs.

"Our goals can only be reached through a vehicle of a plan, in which we must fervently believe, and upon which we must vigorously act. There is no other route to success." - Vincent van Gogh These words of Vincent van Gogh are ones to remember when setting your goals for the new year. I have set goals in different areas of my life for 2010, and I am developing a plan to accomplish each one. The first part of the plan is to write the goals down, and clearly define what they are. So here it goes... 1. Spiritually- I will read the entire New Testament in 2010. 2. Family- I will go see my grandparents at least once a month. I will tell my husband and children that I love them everyday (I pretty much do this part anyway). 3. Finance- I will clip more coupons and limit my eating out to 2 time...

Hot Springs celebrates one of the most significant events in its history this year.  President Andrew Jackson signed Hot Springs Reservation into existence on April 20, 1932, 175 years ago.  It was the first federally protected area in the nation's history.I believe this calls for some celebrating in Hot Springs, Arkansas this year!
