The Holiday

The Perfect New Year

Ahh… I’m just getting my start on the day… drinking the perfect cup of coffee, hanging out on my ‘new’ heirloom sofa typing away. Yesterday was great. I donated 5 bags of clothes to charity, cleaned out my closet… did ALL my laundry. Oh, and now all my clothes can fit in my closet! Woo!

Rocky and I captured the last sunset of 2007, which was phenomenal. The clouds and the colors were unreal… above is a view from my bathroom window! Later, we went to dinner at Plouf, a great little French restaurant on Belden Lane (which has a little Parisian vibe, with outdoor seating, French café chairs… you know…), ate the best dinner, then we took a nice stroll along to the Ferry Building to watch fireworks. The perfect evening.

At dinner we talked of New Year’s resolutions… Last year, I know I made one to quit smoking, which I actually did, so this year, I’m going to share with you some that I’ve been thinking about…

  1. Eat better, exercise more… I kinda lost track of things when I got so involved with blogging
  2. Let my friends and family know I love them more often
  3. Listen to more music
  4. Take more walks in nature
  5. Be kinder to my feet
  6. Develop more earth-friendly habits
  7. Travel… I saw this photo in the NYT that made me crave the air of another country.
  8. Last but not least… refine my wardrobe. What is my style? How does it reflect my values? Who I am? How much fun is it? It’s a lot of fun. That much I can say right now.

Smiles, warmth, and love.
Have a beautiful day.
