Hello, January!

As the 2017 calendars are put into use and the feeling of “new” permeates…a few moments to look ahead and welcome in the month (and the year) and all that it holds…a chance to say HELLO January… 

HELLO to a new year filled with new potential…watching the amaryllis bulb & paper white bulb evolve this month is a fitting reminder of starting anew…

HELLO to a return to meal planning…life is much better when I take a few moments each week to plan out the menus and shop appropriately…

HELLO to a new slate of vacation days and making fun vacation plans…a March trip south on the horizon will warm the cold days of this month…other trip possibilities are ruminating…

HELLO to a new reading goal for the year…and “under the tree” reads to be devoured…this is the sort of weather that makes me want to read all the time…

HELLO to fostering hygge during these winter months…embracing the opportunity to stay cozy in the house when winter weather says it is better to be inside – a fireplace, reading, knitting, cooking – my home is filled with many things to fill the cold times with warmth…

HELLO to more Kon Mari and continuing to cull through unjoyful and unnecessary stuff in the house…a first Green Drop pickup is already on the calendar…

HELLO to new opportunities at work…the chance to stretch and grow while tackling something new…

HELLO to the 12th year of hanging my shingle out at this blog…hello to establishing more rhythm to posting out here, even if nobody is reading…

HELLO to a new “one word” for the year and determining how to live that…hello, FOCUS…

What are you saying HELLO to during this January?

Linking up with Carole and Kat for Think, Write, Thursday.
