Happy New Year! I hope everyone had great festive holidays and a beautiful start to 2019. I had a lovely Christmas with my family, it was nice having the tree up and watching my four-year-old nieces open their gifts. They were very excited little girls. Also, it was nice spending time with mum and just feeling the festive beauty. I find that over the festive week, I reflect on those who have passed away, and all the joyful Christmases of the past spent with them. I think remembering those times keeps everyone alive in my heart.
Christmas time is also romantic for me as it’s the 4th year of when my boyfriend first asked me out, brings back so many magical memories and it’s always nice on the 27th to celebrate that moment with him… he’s a lovely person and I feel very blessed to have him in my life and look forward to more lovely memories in 2019 together.
The new years bring new resolutions and goals. My main ones are to keep writing, reading and exercise more and see more beauty in every day. Also stay in contact with all those I care about and try to worry less. What are your goals or resolutions for this year?
Smokey and Holly also have goals—I think Holly’s is to eat all of Smokey’s dreamies from his treat snowman before he gets the chance. I think over the last few days he’s looked at her like, ‘you just ate yours, they are mine.’ And Smokey’s is to attack all his toys and take cat naps much more than last year… he looks so sweet sleeping.
I hope everyone has good health, joy and love this year. I can’t wait to read all kinds of wonderful books this year and of course host many wonderful authors on my blog. So, whatever your plan is this year I hope you all have a wonderful one with all your dreams and goals coming true.
