At the moment we are living in an expanse of white, snow, snow and more snow so I need a little color inspiration...

This little guy joining our family has to be the highlight of my 2013! What a joy he is, always happy. My resolution this year is to take a cue from little Ian and just be happy, live life to the fullest.

  Today is the last day of vacation. Oh, how I have enjoyed my time off and hate to see it end. So to make the most of it I am doing a couple of my favorite things. Watching Randolph Scott westerns and sewing a binding on a quilt that was started back in the 90's.

  I hope everyone had fun ending the year last night. I spent the evening with some really crazy friends and it was memorable. I am looking forward to all that 2014 brings my way.

The season is almost over.  I have to say it has been a really nice one for me this year.   I had decided early on to just slow down and enjoy it.  Most of my shopping was done online, I never did have to make a trip to the mall.  Instead time was spent with friends enjoying a nice dinner and a cranberry martini or two.   
 
 
 
 
 I made a visit to Santa and Mrs. Claus with the grandkids then we enjoyed a big pancake and sausage breakfast afterwards.  They have spent a couple of nights with grandma in their newly made up bedroom.  We have spent lots of time reading books, singing songs and dancing.  Nothing beats dancing with these two little sweeties!
  
  
 
 
Early mornings have been spent with a cup of coffee and Jane Austen.  So far I have read Pride and Prejudice and I am in the middle of Persuasion.  I do love a good classic.
 
 
 
 
I have a whole stack of books pulled out to read again to inspire me for the new year.  And my new sewing room is bright and warm and ready for me to get busy in. 
 
I fully believe that we choose the joy in our life.   I hope that you have had a joyful holiday season!
