I just wanted to wish y'all a happy new year and let you in on the best new years that I've ever had. I think that I've always had disappointing NYE's because it is the end of the holidays (which I LOVE LOVE LOVE) and I feel the need to squeeze, milk, and cram in all the rest of my winter fun in before the post-holiday blues set in. Augh, the pressure!
But this year we planned to go low key. Really, really low key. So new years eve passed with some pleasant knitting, a new-to-us episode of Gilmore Girls, and some marital snuggling. New Years Day found us meeting up with a group of new friends (all with kids) for a mellow hike along the river. We walked, we chatted, and we snacked. All with pleasant weather and wonderful people. Then we toddled on home to play with Tank Boy's new train set in front of the Christmas tree. Molly cat even joined us for a cuddle on the carpet.
It was a crazy feeling of being exactly where I needed to be. Here's to that kind of peace all year!
