Musings

12, 13….

Thoughts on a year….on this, the supposed last day of the world. Talk about beautiful timing.

I’m going to wrap up my blog year today. No Mayan influence. Honest. It’s just my blog’s New Year’s Eve. The past five days were like pulling teeth to write and very challenging but I bumbled through with all those thoughts swirling around like Christmas snow. Now the snow has stopped and it’s quieting down.

Time to wrap it up and seal the deal on 2012. Next week is Christmas and my family and I will be up to our ears in relatives, friends, merry-making and relaxing. This blog, although always on my mind, will be resting and regrouping for a new year, too.

This WAS a good year in many ways. It has certainly ended on an atrocious note but there were some good things in there along the way.

For me, Daily Frosting came into being and in the process, I have found something that I really love doing and it has started to lead to other new adventures in writing. I’ve also met some interesting and creative people that I would not have had the privilege to meet had this venue not been born. Hey, look at that, I gave birth at the ripe old age of 42. And here I thought I was all done. Surprises abound, don’t they?

That’s my hope. That I keep giving birth in new and different ways each year. Pretty soon, I’ll have the Duggers beat. Upside here is no horrifying maternity pants (*shiver*).

May 2013 be:

Inspiring
Peaceful
Filled with love
Filled with laughter
Creative
Adventurous
Insightful

The beginning of any new year is always an exciting thing. Shiny and new. Hopeful and bright.

I like that.

As my younger daughter says with a giggle…”See you Next Year!”

It never gets old, does it?

Namaste, friends.

  1. Happy New Year April! I have enjoyed reading your new venture as much as you’ve enjoyed writing it. You are funny and inspiring and super-awesome in the kitchen 🙂 I might not try the recipes (unless you want to drop another chocolate cream pie off …I’ll *try* that again anytime) but I enjoy reading about them.
    I hope you all have the Merriest Christmas
