When my husband and I were first married, he was surprised to see that I like to mail order some special foods. I order my bacon online, as well as my croissants. He thought me weird I am sure, but now is happy that I try food from all over. I was surprised to learn that he never had Irish bacon before we were married, but now it is his favorite.
We watched the Tournament of Roses Parade together (something I haven't done in decades!). It is so amazing to see the beautiful floats that these talented people made using flowers and so many other natural materials. As a crafter, the idea of gluing beans onto a form one at a time freaks me out!
My husband loves pigs in a blanket, so I made them for a snack. With all these treats, I made fish for dinner!
Later in the evening I was able to pack away a lot of my Christmas crafting mess that was on my desk after all the Christmas card making I did. Finally, I was able to sit down and make something not holiday related. A good friend asked me to make a princess card for his mom to give a neighbor girl who is a "princess in waiting." Since Abbi is blonde, I decided it was fitting to make her a Cinderella card and used a stamp from my EK Success/Disney set.
This was really the perfect way to start the new year. It is the most relaxed I have been in ages, and one of my New Year's goals is to keep this in mind and strive to relax more and take time to enjoy more.
