Happy New Year!
I don't know about you but I'm ready! Ready for the new year with all it's new beginnings. There are new people to meet, new friends to make, new blog posts to read, new quilts to make, new....oh, the excitement of all the new things a new year can bring!
I don't make resolutions but I do plan/hope to do a few healthy things. I joined Jazzercise a month ago and I love it! I go three or four days a week and I can already tell the difference. I'm eating healthier, cutting back on sugar in particular, and having fewer diet sodas.
2014 is the year my husband and I will celebrate our 50th anniversary - not until October - and are planning a wonderful trip to reward ourselves for meeting that milestone. And speaking of rewards...I'm going to take the late Erma Bombeck's advice and use the good china, figuratively speaking, since I gave mine to my daughter some years ago!. I'm not saving favorite things for some ambiguous later. I'm going to be sure that I smile a lot, tell people I love them, and savor each day. I'm going to finish some UFOs but if I don't I'm not going to feel guilty. I'm going to start some new quilts just for the fun of it, even when the UFOs are calling my name.
And I'm going to share more - I'm going to give away some patterns and some fabric because, Heaven knows, I have more than I can ever use. So be watching...there are some giveaways coming your way!
Have a wonderful New Year's Eve, a fantastic New Year's Day, and an amazing New Year!
Blessings to you and yours,
