Welcome to the New Year! I hope you had a wonderful celebration to ring in the New Year with people who you love. We stayed home as we usually do, ringing in the year with the kids. Our family kept the ‘party’ pretty low-key, watching the festivities on TV while playing board games and sipping on bubbly. We had snack foods and root beer floats to top off the evening, and at the stroke of 12 we broke out the silly string and poppers and created a huge mess in the living room and kitchen!
I’ve been cherishing these last few days before the routine happens again. Yesterday I went and had a pedicure and lunch with a friend and caught up for a few hours and today we all hung out at the house and took down the Christmas decorations and packed them away for the next 11 months. We are officially down to our last day of our vacation and I’m already looking forward to our next long weekend.
These past two weeks have shown me how nice it is to slow down and just be. Be happy; be content.
