New Year Weekending.

Happy New Year! It was a quiet weekend around here. Marc played a little golf. I read, knitted and spent time with my journal. We made mussels for New Year's Eve dinner and went to bed early.

Turns out a good night's sleep was the perfect way to begin the New Year. as was a visit to see our two favorite little boys (and their parents). Charlie showed me how to use the stickers in Instagram stories.

He even made our annual photo session fun!

Today Marc is back at work (and dreading all the office talk about Georgia's win last night) and I'm undecorating. I'm going to miss those twinkle lights,

but it's time. The days are already getting longer ... and January seems full of promise.

For the last few years, we have left the twinkle lights up in the kitchen which makes the dark mornings much more welcoming

I finished my first book of the year yesterday and I am leaving my twinkle lights up in January to inspire a little hygge around here! XO

Happy New Year Mary! I did a little undoing yesterday but the tree remains up and will until we return from CO. Your photo session is just wonderful!

I didn't decorate much this year, so undecorating was easy. I did add several strands of twinkle lights to some house plants and I think they're staying until I see more light (and warmer temps) outside. Happy New Year!

January days are already longer! I left my twinkle lights up for a couple more weeks. Your weekend looks marvelously fun and Charlie (and you) look so cute with noses and ears!

I leave most of my decorations up through Epiphany, so I have the rest of the week to enjoy them. I've noticed that it seems a bit lighter in the evening, but too cold to spend more than a few minutes outdoors! Happy New Year!

We will take the tree down this weekend but I'm leaving twinkle lights up! Happy New Year and hurrah for longer days!

Great photos (love the noses and ears - too cute!!). Glad you had a nice relaxing weekend. I'm ready to in-decorate, but Fletch hates to take the tree down so it will stay up a bit longer. Afternoons are lighter, but mornings are darker!

Hurray for quiet weekends! And cute photos! I'm happy to see the Christmas decorations go but am clinging on to the lights for the foreseeable future.

It was an early night here too. The only "good" thing about college football this past week was that Miami lost. Here's to a year full of great memories and lots of laughs!

Luv Luv the Instagram photos of you and the fellas...think Charlie could teach me? I must find out if Chris knows how to use it...I will miss your shots of the trees seen via a wine glass or knitting needles...think this last shot is particularly grand! Here's to January and 2018! ...

I am dreading the undecorating... mostly avoiding it, in fact. Perhaps this weekend. I am ready to reclaim my space! Love the photos (more smiling over here!).
