Happy New Year to YOU!!

I hope you had wonderful time last night and are not hurting too much this morning!


We celebrated last night with a bonfire, cards and great friends. The temperature even warmed up to about -15C so we were able to stay out all night. We chatted, went sliding, roasted hotdogs and watched our own private fireworks show! I am so very grateful to have friends like these to share our lives with.



Every year I make a BUCKET LIST of ALL the things I want to do over the year. It helps me to appreciate all the fun things that I have done over the year. It also helps me to aspire to great things. I usually keep the list to myself and write it in completely random order but this year I thought I would  share it with you.
