Ordinary Day

As I posted for my Facebook status "Goodbye Christmas, Hello New Year!"  So it's here - the 'new' year.  The tree is away, the decorations packed up and the Christmas music retired for the next eleven months.  I don't have tons of photos to share with you all, nor many stories but it was a wonderful Christmas and a superb New Years Eve! 

I had decided to not take any photos on Christmas morning as I wanted to really experience it and not just from behind the lens...know what I mean?!?  I have no real interesting stories but that's fine with me.  You know how sometimes life is well...just life?  So that was it.  We had sickness and health, family and friends, late nights and early mornings and well we just lived this past week, day by day - it has been great!

I'm not one for New Year's Resolutions, so you won't find any listed here, though the new year does come with it's expectations, doesn't it?  I see so many people around me are more then ready to be done with 2010 and are more then excited to welcome 2011 and I'll drink (coffee) to that!

But today, January 1st 2011 is for us; well, it's an ordinary day.  Lazy even.  The skies are overcast, the snow has melted and these is way to much food mulling about and in reach of me....

We hosted our annual New Year's Eve party last night and it was great - if I do say so myself! ;)  Good food, fun games and amazing people, that's how we ring in the New Year!  After 3 hours of sleep we're up and cleaning, restoring some order to our lives - as seems to be customary on the dawn of a new year - and enjoy oodles of coffee from our new coffee maker. 

So there you have it, a little post to say Happy New Year to you all!  It's an ordinary day, but one full of promise, hope, expectation and a day that follows a night were I got to wear these shoes....

....well it's got to be a good thing!  HAPPY NEW YEAR!


  1. Cute shoes. But, I would have to say I would "Break a Leg" wearing those, literally.

    Happy rest of the New Year!!
    Thanks for your (blogging) friendship and I'll drink coffee with you, for sure.

  2. The ordinary days can be the best. They often make the greatest memories. Love your shoes,and thanks for the richness you add to our family...all of us. I got to hear a little of the spin-off of New Year's Eve and when you make my 'people' happy, you contribute to me!

  3. Those shoes are FABULOUS!! We didn't take too many pictures over Christmas either.. I'm usually such a shutterbug during occasions like that, but this year I really wanted to be out from behind the lens and really experience things first-hand. Photographs are wonderful, but now we have some special mental-pictures that we can either keep private and cherished or describe in words any time!

    Shawn and I hit Brockville for a whirlwind 24 hours of Christmas, family and COFFEE, hahaha - if I'd had any more time on my hands I would've given you a buzz, but "whirlwind" is definitely the key word there, haha! We'll have to get together in the new year!

    Glad you guys had happy holidays :D hearts from Jennie and Shawn!


Leave me a comment! I love hearing from you! ♥
