Happy New Year~




We are driving to our friends' home this afternoon to spend our New Years eve together with them! We have done this for the past 3 or 4 years and all of us enjoy the time spent together. The kids all get together as well and we enjoy a fire in the chimenea outside as well as a roaring fire in the fireplace. It is a relaxing time spent with loved ones...creating memories and sharing stories of our childhoods.


Yesterday I took down the Christmas tree and the decorations...while I so enjoy decking the halls for the Christmas season, I also enjoy it being gently packed away for another year as I look to rearranging, puttering and nesting for the New Year. I changed some decorative items around, edited others and generally freshened up the rooms a bit. Tomorrow after I get home I plan on cutting some roses that are blooming in the front yard! I can't believe they are blooming..I will post a picture of them...just gorgeous!


Time to fold some clothes and pack up a few things to take with us today. Whatever you may find yourself doing this day..whether it is cooking a big NewYears' eve feast for your loved ones, or enjoying some quiet time watching old movies, have a most blessed New Year!


May your day include somje quiet reflection of the past year and great anticipation for the promise of the New Year! God Bless you and yours...Blessings always!
