After a MILLION takes we landed a few for our cards this year...
My neighbors have been putting my tinctures to good use over the last month....and fortunately only two sickies in the last month here. Thankful for good health and no drama this winter so far.
I have been knitting/crocheting ferociously...mostly christmas gifts...hats and scarves.
I'm madly in love with CHUNKY yarn....not to mention they are super warm!
I recently took a trip to France...Soufflenheim and Strasbourg, both beautiful, quaint, and o.l.d. I'll not bore you with a ton of pics....but here a few favorites I took while I was there.
In Soufflenheim, I went shopping for french pottery :)
I went to an incredible pottery demonstration...and then got to choose my fondue pot from the potter's shop.
We, of course, had fondue when I got home :)
We ate at the most charming french cafe...(did I mention I LOVE french cafe music and they were playing it) ahhhh....Je 'taime
The only thing missing was a cat in the window....
I love traveling....sometimes it wears me out and I'm in my pj's for days....crashing with my kids...playing boggle, puzzles, chatting over a vanilla or orange rooibus tea, watching home videos, and walking at night in the cool air ...and sometimes we get lucky and it starts to snow and we look up and it looks like the stars are falling from the sky....
This year has been a wonderful chapter in my life. Beautiful opportunities came my way and gave me many unforgettable gifts. Choosing to find the good things and remembering them this past year makes those small imperfections and mishaps, meaningless and forgettable!
Happy New Year to you and yours,
