New Year Musings

A New Year has begun and everyday is a day to reflect on the past while moving forward in the moment.  Somehow looking back helps me to set new goals for the future and that's what I plan on doing for this year.

Right now we seem a bit overwhelmed by the weather. Cold and snow keep us busy just clearing out the paths and driveway to  continue on with our regular activities. Oh how simple it is to just jump in the car and drive away without thinking about all the snow that has settled overnight onto everything you just cleared off the day before! The joys of winter!

But there's this....

The beauty of winter and fresh snow at a nearby park.



I know I'm a bit late in wishing you all a Happy New Year, but I wanted to share this gorgeous vintage card I came across. I love the blue and gold color combination and I think it's such a sweet composition. 






Anyway, I hope you have wonderful plans for your 
brand New Year!
I'll be checking in on your blogs to see what you're up to! ~~~ Diane

Winter Solstice ~ Merry Christmas




Several years ago, I was lucky enough to find a Tomte! These cute Scandinavian wooden figures are a harbinger of winter with the promise of spring.  In folklore they are mischievous little elfin creatures who may do good deeds or play tricks on you! Sounds much like the way life really is!

We have entered into Winter but the good news is that brighter days are ahead. The sun will set later and rise a few minutes earlier every day until we reach the summer solstice where it reverses again.  So here's to brighter days ahead.  May all my dear readers have a very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Winter Solstice and a Happy New Year!  🎄✨❄🎉 Diane
