Remember, the time of year
when the future appears
like a blank sheet of paper
a clean calendar, a new chance.
On thick white snow

you vow fresh footprints
then watch them go
with the wind’s hearty gust.
So fill your glass. Here’s to us. Promises
made to be broken, made to last.

~ Jackie Kay

Whatever is beautiful,
Whatever is meaningful,
Whatever brings you happiness…
May it be yours this Holiday Season
and throughout the coming year.

May you take time
to celebrate the quiet miracles
that seek no attention.

May you experience each day as a sacred gift woven
around the heart of wonder.

night before..

“Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night”

Taking a short blogging break to spend the holidays with my family.

Until then, I wish you a very happy holiday season!  See you in 2016!

Happy weekend!

“Because we need a little Christmas…”

I will be going full force in the kitchen starting tomorrow with all the holiday baking. And then there’s all that wrapping I have left to do.

So I’m popping in a day early to wish you all a lovely weekend.

Enjoy!
