Happy New Year everyone! I hope that everyone has happiness, love, and good health in 2017. We brought in the new year with some friends, ate downtown on the waterfront, then walked to the space needle to watch the fireworks. This is the last new years without a baby, figured we should enjoy it (albeit sober for me of course) as next year will be entirely different. 2017 brings change. Change personally and for the family, but also for the country. Here's hoping for the very possible best to pass and trying to keep positive with all the negative in the current world.
Today, per my usual custom, I will throw the first pots of the year! Plan is to make some plates for the kitchen, ours are painfully old and some of my first works...very rough indeed. Something a little more professional perhaps is due. Husband and I will also continue our 1st day of the year tradition in writing down our objectives for the year, what we hope to accomplish for ourselves individually and together. Then we post it on the fridge to keep in mind as the year progresses and cross them off as we finish them. We will have some roll over from last year...didn't really get to finishing all of our goals last year, but that's ok, it's good to try, right?
What are your customs for the first of the year? Do you do the same thing every year? I'd love to hear it in the comments section, if you want to share! Best wishes to all.
