Auld Lang Syne

What I Wore

New Year's Eve

Sweater - JCP/Brocade Pants - JCP
Shoes - Gitano /Watch - MK/Hamsa bracelet - gifted/DREAM bracelet - gifted/Earrings - Local Boutique

 The end of a year with a time of reflection and remembrance. The start of a new year full of possibilities and plans. People talk about resolutions or avoiding making resolutions. Others incorporate traditions such as eating specific foods (cabbage, pork and black eyed peas) or watching The Rose Bowl Parade and football games. What I have chosen to do is to focus, not on a list of resolutions (lose weight, eat healthier, etc.) but on a word. My word... JOY.  I have done something very similar to this in the past, but this year I am finding a lot more support online from blogs and groups set up specifically to help as the year goes on. I even have put a button on my homepage thanks to Melanie, a sweet blogger who has offered to make them for free Free One Word Blog Buttons. How about you? Do you make resolutions, avoid making resolutions, have a word to focus on, or do you have another way of beginning a New Year?

  7. Wow... snow!! Would like to have a little of that once or twice. But I have to say, the weather has been very mild and I like not having to bundle up when I walk out the door!
