Happy New Year!
New Year's Day is a time to reflect on your life over the past year and to dream up a few resolutions as to how to do it better next year... Hmm, well apart from the usual suspects; get fit, keep in better contact with loved friends and family not in my immediate orbit, eat more healthily (not so much chocolate and more salad)... I've not got much to wish for, things are good and I feel very optimistic about the coming year.
I suppose if I'm to hope for anything at all for 2010, it is for a calm, restful and peaceful year, and that is reflected in my dress today; calm, restful and peaceful colours, but with sparkly shoes for a tiny bit of pizazz... I made my necklace during my beading fad a few years ago. I've worn it only periodically as its kind of showy for my tastes... but I like how its mass of pearl beads are kind of like bubbles in a glass of champagne, sort of celebratory, which seems appropriate for New Year's Day.
Today the boys of my family are going sailing together and I will walk on the beach, afterwards we are visiting friends for a BBQ.
