Happy New Year Everyone!!!

This morning I took down last year’s calendar and putting up the new one.  I flipped to January and as I was looking at all those empty boxes so full of possibilities it reminded me how I love new things!  New things are full of potential, optimism, and perfection.  Many things are also nice when worn but that is a topic for an other day.

Today, to help celebrate a NEW year, here is a list of NEW things I love…

  1. New babies
  2. New baby animals of any kind
  3. Newly opened packages of coffee
  4. New snow
  5. New tracks in the snow
  6. New cars
  7. Newly paved roads
  8. New leaves
  9. New grass
  10. New flooring
  11. New sheet of stamps
  12. New school years
  13. New library books
  14. New notebooks or sketchbooks
  15. New pencils (factory sharpened)
  16. New glue sticks
