I always look forward to a new year. I love the quiet and calm that new year's day brings, and the sense of hope one has for the coming year. Even though we inevitably bring our baggage along with us, a new year somehow feels like a clean slate. History waiting to be written.
We make lists and resolutions. We clean house, and start fresh. The glitter and pomp of Christmas ~ as much as I love it ~ begins to seem like clutter. I yearn for simple things, like a warm wool blanket, a cup of tea, and a new book.
So, here are some things I'm looking forward to enjoying this new year:
* a new taste
* a new bottle
* a new coat
* a new book (inspiring a new project)
* and some new adventures. . .
Happy New Year, friends!
