The Start of a New Year

When I was younger, I remember that everything had to be just so. So, when Christmas was over, I would have the tree immediately down and my house all in order. All my friends would say, "You take your tree down too early" or "Your house is always perfect." Well, I am happy to say that with age comes wisdom. I didn't take my tree down till yesterday! I have been playing, lazing around, doing a little reading, shopping and generally just relaxing. I am in heaven!

My big kid of a husband still rings Santa's bells to wake everyone up. :)


New Years with friends...

Reading magazines and going to my favorite flea market

Reading a book by the fire. I never take time to do this. It was heaven.

Riding bikes with hubby.

I made a promise to myself to take more time for soaking life in. Life goes by way to fast. Speaking of that... cannot believe my Spring show is in a few month!. I am busily planning away and so stayed tuned.


  1. Judy! Congratulations in finding the secret to life!

  2. Amen my friend!!! We all need to live by that wisdom. Life goes by way to fast not to stop and take it all in <3 xoxo

  3. Hey this post! Nice to see you relaxing and enjoying LIFE!! I'm looking forward to the Spring Show, I hope you have room for me. We had so much fun at the last one, I can hardly wait for this one. Keep us posted! xokathee

  4. It's awesome what you are doing- keep it going....we can still have neat houses when we have tree is still up and I'm loving it!! We didn't have snow for Christmas and now we've got it, so it LOOKS like Christmas now...I'm working through boxes of decorations and organizing things, cleaning out closets, but I walk by that tree and I smile every single time!
    Great post!!

  5. Good for you! Is there anything better than a good book or inspiring magazine?
