happy new year, dearest lovelies!
what a wonderful time of year: reknewal & rebooting & reinventing and all the wonderful re-words that accompany this glorious time when we can each start things anew in our lives! i love that.
here's to a glorious new year ahead for each of you, sweeties.
may it be a fabulous year filled with wellness, peace, laughter, joy, love, kindness and wonderful ideas!
i'd love to hear about any fun new year's traditions you lovelies celebrate annually at this time. special get-togethers? special meals? making your new year's resolutions (or intentionally not) ... please tell us!
one of my favourite new year's traditions belonged to my wonderful grandpa, who sadly passed away on boxing day last week.... each year, first thing on new year's day he'd cut a fresh spring of cedar, place it in water and care for it for the year in their home. he told us of how it brought good luck, happiness and longevity to the family, and that his parents did this every year before him! we do the same now, too!
and quite wonderfully, he lived a fulfilling, wonderful, family-centred, musical, community-serving, gentle, peace-loving & faithful life to the age of 92! perhaps that little cedar bough played a small part in that!
so happy new year, nicies! may it be all things wonderful!
and please tell us your fave new year's traditions!
cheers! Pin It
