I hope you all had a wonderful New Year. Our celebration was quiet. Very quiet. As in we stayed home and watched football and neither of us made it to midnight.
We did have a New Year’s Eve lunch at a favorite restaurant, where I couldn’t help but sneak a pic of their gorgeous dome.
My son, who was visiting friends in Chicago, sent me this amazing pic of the Chicago River, which he knows is one of my favorite spots.
And back at home we had a pretty snowfall.
I ventured out to take a few pics around the yard.
I love the way the snow looks on evergreens, statues and planters.
Like a lot of you, I’m sure, we watched the season premiere of Downton Abbey on Sunday.
And I took special notice of this piece of paper, which has been hanging on the memo board in the kitchen forever.
These seemed like good things to remind myself of in the new year.
I hope your 2016 is starting off well. It always feels so good to get back to the familiar routines, doesn’t it?
