And what a year 2012 is shaping up to be!
I am starting it off by joining a group of my fellow bloggers at Marsha's virtual luncheon in Paris. She chose Le Pré Catelan Restaurant, residing in a beautiful historic mansion located in le Bois de Boulogne. I will arrive a bit early so I can stroll around Le Pré Catelan's garden, exquisite even on January first.
I admit, it took a while to decide on my outfit. Fashion is not my thing. Seeing what everyone else will wear, however, will be great fun. Here's what I went with:
Kate Spade necklace, shawl collar top, silk pants with chiffon skirt overlay, leather lace-up boots, Stella McCartney faux python shoulder bag, earrings, Aqua Universalis forte parfum, chandelier, Tivoli woods wallpaper, glass tile background
As I join this charming group of women, I look forward to absorbing their enthusiasm and zest for life. Going forward is our theme for today and I intend to!
Going forward in 2012 means I will...
-First and foremost, love and treasure my family and friends
-Grow more food at home and use our little patch of earth to its fullest
-Visit all of you more often
-Let go of inhibitions and just go for it
-Pick a volunteer project and participate
-De-clutter the house and build more bookshelves
What are your intentions for 2012?
