Well, we had a wonderful Christmas with family and friends, and now it's time to ring in the new year! I can hardly believe how fast time flies. It's scary actually. Each day is truly a gift, and it's up to us to make the most of every minute of this great life we are living.
Tonight, we're staying in and celebrating a quiet New Year's Eve. Looking quite forward to it. We have a snazzy bottle of champagne (thanks Amy) chilling in the fridge, just waiting to be poured into some pretty champagne glasses. I'll be reflecting on the joy that 2007 brought: baby Sam, my new business, new friends, old friends, a loving husband, healthy children and a healthy extended family, all of you dear blog friends that I have had the pleasure of getting to know and so much more.
I made this collaged party hat a few years ago but never really finished it....never knew quite what to do with it. I was looking at it today and it occurred to me that I could fashion it into a New Year's Eve party hat! I added some more details and silver Dresden numbers and placed it on the buffet in the kitchen. Fun. Simple. Festive.
These vintage party horns are a thrift store find. I am in love with the colors and the soft shredded tissue paper. Aren't they fun? Don't worry, I won't be using them, just enjoying their prettiness. I do use a lot of things from thrift stores and flea markets, but horns are NOT one of them!
I'm looking forward to a new year and a chance to love more, worry less, meet new people, take new chances, think up fresh ideas, continue to watch my kids grow and learn and change, spread a little more joy, be the best me I can be, and eat less chocolate. That will be the toughest one for sure.
I wish you all a happy and healthy 2008!!!!
