2015!

I’m thrilled that we are now into the energy of a NEW YEAR!  The old one behind us.  Like most New Years, this one starts out fresh with an optimism to it that radiates out towards all aspects of life.  I had the pleasure of performing a New Year’s Eve ritual from years passed, creating the new year on paper, with my friend Molly and her daughter Joanna.  When Joanna and Emily, my daughter, were little, we’d get together for many a New Year’s Eve for an early seafood dinner and then bring out the paper, markers, crayons and our imaginations to color in what we wanted for the coming year.

I flew up to  Seattle Christmas Day in order to celebrate not only Christmas but my son’s 30th birthday (how can that be?!?).  We had a lovely celebration, Bob, Emily, Matt, her boyfriend, along with their Dad and his partner.  It was the day after Christmas that we did our New Years ritual a bit early.  It was very fulfilling as I’ve got lots of ideas for things to come to pass and they circle around in my head.  It’s always a relief to put them down on paper!

This year is starting out FAST as I’ll be on a plane on Tuesday headed to ATL for the Gift Show.  I’ll be sharing a booth with my good friend Susan.  We will be in Bldg 3, Floor 5, Booth 1706.  I’ve got lots to do before I jump on that plane!

But first, I wish for you and yours a New Year filled with much Joy, Love, Prosperity, Happiness and Magical Surprises!
