What are you doing New Year’s Eve…

From the Frank Buttolph Menu Collection (updated for 2022)

I’ve been enjoying a nice, long break and taking it a bit slower than I usually do.  Eating lots of great food, watching ‘must see’ movies [Being the Ricardo’s, Don’t Look Up, Nobody, The Last Duel and in a few days, MacBeth], and spending time with those I love are the best presents of all, and the perfect way to end 2021.

I’m not a resolution kind of gal, but I am a BIG list maker.  On my list for 2022; travel to San Diego, Denver, Charleston, and Apalachicola, reading, painting [the art kind] and lightening up. By that I mean getting rid of some of the clutter and excess I seem to collect.  I’ve spent the morning cleaning out my internet ‘Other Bookmarks’ folder (aka: links to things I will get around to reading eventually). Here are a few things which made the cut that you might enjoy…

Happy New Year! Wishing you all the best for 2022!

Welcome back my friends…

And we’re off…

Happy 2017 everyone. I hope Santa treated you well and you got to spend lots of quality time with those you care most about. I enjoyed a week of downtime and cooked, binge-watched movies, TV shows, and sporting events (Go Clemson), and played nightly cutthroat Scrabble games with family and friends.

I am not a big one for New Year’s resolutions (see here). Instead, I use January 1st to brainstorm about the future.  Last year, I hoped to find inspiration through books, movies, fashion, travel, and art. Looking back through my posts from the past year I can say that I was definitely achieved my goal, finding influence through my travel (here), fashion (here and here), and reading (here and here).

As for 2017, I will continue to find inspiration as I always have while setting a few goals for myself (such as posting on a more regular basis).  As the year proceeds I will be sharing my creations and adventures with all of you so stay tuned.  And thank you for reading – it means the world to me.

All the best for 2017!
