As the start of a new year draws near I look forward to savoring each and every minute left of 2011, a good year for the most part.
I thought I might offer these images/inspiration for those of you with plans to entertain family and/or friends on New Year’s Eve. I find the table settings warm, inviting and they offer an easy transition from Christmas themed decor to a New Year’s celebration with very little effort.
I also want to take this opportunity to tell you how much I enjoy our chats and your blog-friendship. I hope 2012 will be a positive year for all of us.
We can head through the gate…
Walk down the lane, even in inclement weather…
…and embrace what comes with an open heart.
*I threw in the image of the puppies because the picture represents such innocence and exuberance…something we all could use more of from time to time.

Have a safe and enjoyable New Year’s Eve and I’ll see you all next year.

I always get nostalgic at the end of the year too. Looking back, 2011 was a pretty good year for us and I’m looking ahead to 2012 being even better. I loved the photos, especially the puppies! My favorite part of this blog was what you said about all of us needing innocence and exuberance from time to time. I totally agree!
Here’s to a wonderful, fun filled 2012 for us all. One day at a time, living in the moment will be the goal. 🙂
Karen, I can’t wait to see your New Years Eve table. We are all so excited to be celebrating at your house this year. It’s a wonderful time to reflect on the past year and look forward to the year to come with our favorite group of friends.
We’re really excited to be hosting NYE this year. I look forward to seeing you all!
