It's New Years Eve and once again I proclaim my holiday wishes to you a day early. You see I'll be far too busy tomorrow making perogies and sauerkraut for a little New Years Day fest. Tonight I plan to drink champagne in my pajamas and wake up just in time to watch the ball drop. It's becoming a bit of a tradition in our house. 2016 is only a few hours away. Happy New Year! - b.

My holiday wishes come to you just a tad early this year. Instead of frantically surfing the internet tomorrow morning take a minute to kiss your someone under the mistletoe, or tell your grandparents you love them, or meditate on what this holly-jolly means. It's Christmas after all.

As for me, I'm spending the holiday in Ohio this year. For the first time in 4 years the whole family will be together and I'm going to selfishly savor this time with all of my being. There will be too much of a lot of things, but love is not among them. Love is something we can always share/give more of. Merry Christmas! - b.
