What is/was your New Year like? What scents are you wafting? What kinds of goodies and/or good luck foods are you indulging in? And what are your New Year’s resolutions or little things you do to kick it off?
I am treating myself sumptuously ringing in 2018, and have been (and will continue) enjoying several of my all-time favorites, including Clive Christian C for Women, Le Labo Vanille 44 and Guerlain’s Encens Mythique. Also digging into some of my vintage Must de Cartier scents for a little retro vibe.
On the food front, sharing a bit o’ bubbly with DH (Sprite for my son), a few finger nibbles, cocktail shrimp and some good chocolate. I’m guessing we’ll be skipping the collard greens this year, ha! DH got me a Keurig for Christmas (quite the surprise — he seemed vehemently opposed to us having one); so we might have to enjoy some hot drinks, too.
No resolutions for me, just to keep on keepin’ on with my Jazzercise, Zumba, walking and weight-loss goals. And as always, to try to be a more compassionate and loving person and to continue strengthening my faith.
One kinda dumb, but necessary, thing I started doing a few years ago, though, is to take my remaining batch of checks (does anyone else still pay bills the old-fashioned way or am I the last living dinosaur?) and write the new year on the datelines of at least the first 20 of them. Or until the new year 2018 gets firmly planted in my poor feeble brain.
Anyhoo, wishing everyone a fabulous and safe New Year! Big fragrant hugs to each of you and let’s make 2018 the best ever!!
