A New Year Awaits

I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas Day.
Since Christmas Day is the beginning of the 12 Days of  Christmas I know some of you will celebrate
until January 5, 2019.
Some people have already reported back to work as they don't get a lot of time off.

Wherever you are and whatever you are doing, I hope you are able to slow down the pace a bit and enjoy this season.

I also wanted to wish each and every one of you a fantastic year ahead in 2019!

I  will be taking an extended break from the blog as
I pursue some personal plans and goals.
I hope to write about it in the months to come.

Wishing you all the best
until I see you again in Blogland!

  7. Oh, yes Joyful...we took it really easy. Stayed home for Christmas and also for New Year's Eve. I don't like crowds and confusion. There is nothing open here anyway during the holidays, except restaurants and trattorias. I don't really like to eat out, I prefer to cook myself. Have a wonderful New Year Joyful! Hugs from Sicily!
