Happy New Year!

Hello Friends,

Happy New Year! I hope that you enjoyed New Year's eve and welcomed the new year in good company and enjoyed yourselves. My boyfriend and I had some friends over and played games, watched Dick Clark's Rockin' Eve, and we had champagne at Midnight. I had a great time!
I love the beginning of the year it is a time for a fresh start and time to decide how we would like to spend the next twelve months (even if we don't stick to every resolution). I like to write a list every year of things I would like to accomplish and this year I made one. This year one of my resolutions is to knit a sweater. I started the back piece already to get the project going and I hope to be finished by the end of the year. This year I will also chose a word inspired by Ruth at her blog Raincloud and Sage who chooses a word every year. I loved this idea and I decided to choose a grouping of words after reading the article by Elizabeth Rider on her blog. The words I am choosing for this year are...

 "radiant, balanced, and consistent"

because they inspire me to both be my best and most radiant self but also to remain balanced and consistent in my work and in my relationships.
I am joining in the Yarn Along with Ginny Sheller this week so I am sharing the book I am reading and what I am currently knitting. You can see other blogger's posts and join in the Yarn Along by clicking here.
This week I am reading the book "Truly Madly Guilty" by Liane Moriarty. I am enjoying it so far and I have heard great things about this book. What interested me to this book was the mystery of what happens at the BBQ that changes the character's lives, and then I like to read how people cope with the aftermath of a big event in a novel. I am looking forward to reading on.
 I am currently knitting the back piece for a sweater I started in December using Homespun yarn by Loops & Threads. I will be posting entries throughout the year when I complete each piece of the sweater as part of a series of posts that will be my journey of completing my first sweater. I also enjoyed using the mug I got for Christmas from Yarn Mamas. I love it!


Thank you for stopping by, I hope that the year 2017 is your best year yet!

  4. Those words sound perfect. I usually choose a word but decided on a whole sentence this year! I read that book and loved it.

    1. Thank you Meredith! I think they will help guide me more this year towards the life I want to create. That's great you chose a sentence I like this idea too of choosing words that we want to follow for the year. I'm glad you liked the book! I am looking forward to reading more.
