A New Year













I'll let these speak for themselves this morning! Each one is important to me, especially in this coming year. I've always loved the new year because of it's introspectiveness. I'm going to make myself another cup of earl grey and sit down with my journal and start scribbling about these precious things I want to incorporate into my life--some are already here, in my life, but I want them more so. I have faults a plenty, things I need to do better, or should do altogether. But, today is about bringing in the new year with fullness and gratitude. And for me, that's focusing on health, simplicity, travel, meditation, order and being.

Much love to you today as we celebrate this new year!

May the New year bring abundant health, greater simplicity, exciting travel, restorative meditation, peaceful order, and complete being!

Coming to your blog, I feel all those things beaming through.

I adore Earl Grey tea!

Love, Life, Learning and Lavishness would be my images. Journaling is a great way to realize your hopes and dreams.
(oh and a bit of "Laziness" too would be an image.) We all need lazy time.
