:: Happy New Year ::

Another year is coming to a close. Wow, when I look back so much has happened in the last year. Some good and some bad…but thankfully mostly good! Tonight we will be spending the night in with our kids watching the ball drop in NYC. The same as every year and we wouldn’t want it any other way.

We all have the sniffles, so we will be sipping on hot chocolate and soup While munching on warm appetizers. Mmmmm~

I want to thank you all for your wonderful, heartfelt comments this past year. Blogging is such a blessing in my life. I have made so many friends, some of these friends I have never met. You all hold a special place in my heart.

It amazes me how kind people truly are. How thoughtful and concerned they can be about someone they have never met. You have all touched me and renewed my faith in the goodness of the people all over this world. I have gotten emails from different towns, states and countries. It truly is inspiring! Thank you! Here’s to a whole new year full of friendship!!

I wanted to leave you with a couple of New Years quotes. You know how I love quotes!

"We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day. " ~Edith Lovejoy Pierce

“Another fresh new year is here
Another year to live!
To banish worry, doubt, and fear,
To love and laugh and give!
This bright new year is given me
To live each day with zest
To daily grow and try to be
My highest and my best!
I have the opportunity
Once more to right some wrongs,
To pray for peace, to plant a tree,
And sing more joyful songs!”

Happy New Year my dear friends! May you all enjoy safe celebrations! I wish you nothing but the best of blessings in 2011. Make it a year to remember for you and those around you!

Until next time, take care.

  9. Wow, that's exactly how we celebrate, haha! Every year we get invited places, but we really just prefer to stay home and ring in the new year watching the ball drop (wasn't Dick Clark so very sad this year, it breaks my heart) and just spending time together.

    I haven't been following you very long Sarah, but I adore your blog. It is full of cozy, homemade goodness! Thanks for always sharing your sweet, sensitive heart!
