New Year 2010

If you are celebrating New Year's in the South, it is a Southern folklore, to eat black eyed peas. One that my mama adheres to if you're celebrating at her home. Black eyed peas are the first food to be eaten for luck and prosperity throughout the year ahead. Mixed with some ham and green beans...mmm good.
Brock and Cache were able to make "Bob" the snowman on New Year's Day. Seven days after the blizzard we still have enough snow on the ground to have Mr. Snowman Bob help us usher in the New Year.

One of my favorite reads is Simple Abundance by Sarah Ban Breathnach. Every year at the beginning I like to pull it out and reread her first couple of pages for inspiration.
January 2 - Loving the Questions

Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves, the German poet Rainer Maria Rilke urges us.

Get the book and read January 1st and January 2nd for inspiration of all that the New Year holds. It always makes me look at the year in front of me with fresh eyes.
