Bonne Année!

In just a little over 12 hours G and I will be wishing each other a bonne année and sipping bubbly.  Another year lived, a new year to live well.  I've decided that rather than making a list of resolutions I simply have two.  To live a life intentionally, with thought and care, and live it well.  

I've got lists galore all the time, recipes I want to try, things I need to do, fashion ideas, crafting ideas, the list of lists goes on and on.  So it seems about time that I simply go list free when it comes to a new year rather than adding to my already toppling pile.  I want to end 2011 saying, "I lived this year well and I was happy."  Sounds simple enough.  

And that is what I wish for those of you reading.  That this next year brings a well lived life full of happiness and acceptance with yourself.  Bonne Année!  See you next year!


  1. This: I want to end 2011 saying, "I lived this year well and I was happy."

  6. That sounds like a wonderful approach to the new year!

  7. That sounds perfect!

    My friend's mother has a "theme" to every year with a quote from the Bible - here is this years:

    Happy New Year! 2011 theme verse: "Anyone who believes in him will not be disappointed...(the Lord) generously gives his riches to all who ask for them. " Romans 10:11-12 (NLT) May you ask for and receive the Lord's riches this year-you won't be disappointed!

    I love the approaches of both of you to the new year :-)

  8. I think that is the best New Year's resolution I have ever heard! Fabulous. I hope that it is something you can say in a year for sure.
