Happy New Year!
Ours ended up being even more quiet than expected. We sat around chatting and watching the kiddies play... And then we went to bed. Before midnight.
- Actually, Ryan and I stayed up until 12:02 to be exact and still shared a midnight kiss. We then laughed at all those who weren't cozy in bed and fell asleep. -
My kitchen wall has been blank for a couple months.
My chalkboard was sold in my sale back in October, but it's taken me a while to find a replacement I love. I happened to stumble across this one at an antique shop in Niagara on the Lake. However, I had to wait until Christmas to hang it because it was a gift from my mother in law.
I'm so happy with it. It's just the right size and I love that it's a beautiful old frame that's been left unpainted. The dark frame really anchors the wall again.
We woke up to such a beautiful, bright morning this morning. It was the perfect morning to start the New Year. It was crisp and covered in a fresh snow. We had a leisurely breakfast and then headed to Ryan's grandma's for our tradition New Year's Day gathering with family.
There we enjoy one of our favourite treats. Oliebollen. It's a raisin filled, doughnut type pastry that's fried. We prefer ours dusted with powdered sugar.
So, now that the New Year is upon us, what are some of your resolutions?
I limited myself to one. A planner. I'll show you the one I chose soon. My resolution for 2014 was to spend time planning out my day in a planner.
Organize a meal plan for the week, track our weekly budget, set monthly goals, compile to-do lists and plan my week.
How about you?
