Happy New Year 2017

Greetings and Happy New Year blog friends. 
I hope you enjoyed a wonderful Christmas Holiday!

As we enter into the winter months with our young new year ahead,
 I can't help but look towards a new journey and the anticipation of all to come our way. 

Everything fresh with a new start,
 a new outlook with faith for the days ahead.
 Do you feel this way each new year?
 Do you like to re-evaluate your direction? 
Do you make resolutions? 
I am not one to make resolutions per say,
but rather,
 a conviction to ask God's direction
 and listen for the answers.
 Having new plans and trying to do my best.

Whatever you have planned for your journey,
 I hope the new year is filled with all that makes you happy.
 All that gives you hope, 
all that makes your heart sing with the blessing of meeting each new day. 

May God give you peace and love along your path and may this new year be one to remember!

I will be back sometime in January with lots to share.
We are taking on a big home project this month with all the cottage windows to be replaced.
Needless to say,
the computer, printer, and everything in between will be covered till the dust settles.
We have a ton of windows so it's a big project and a dusty one! 
 as some of you know,
 I also work for my hubbies company
and January will have me away observing and learning off site.

I can try and stay in touch with my phone
through your blogs, FB, IG, Pinterest and more.

Thank you for a great year of blogging and friendship in 2016.
I look forward to another wonderful year ahead sharing with you 
and joining  in your adventures and blogland journeys!

Have a wonderful and safe holiday weekend.
GOD Bless you in 2017

Your home project sounds like quite an undertaking. But when it is completed, all the mess and inconvenience will be so worth it.

Good morning Celeste and Happy New Year! I hope your window replacement project is going well. It's so COLD!! It's a good time to get energy efficient windows. ;)

Just wanted to tell you that I always love your comments. Your comments come up as No Reply Blogger and I've stopped chasing those down. Just know that I love your visits and your sweet words. :)

Looking forward to more get togethers this year!

I hope 2017 brings you only good thing. For myself, I've hardly made a dent in my 2016 resolutions, so I'm recycling them to 2017 :-)

Liz@ HomeandGardeningWithLiz said...

Happy New Year! I was wondering what you've been up to! New windows are a great investment but making room for the workers is a big job! I didn't know you were working for the hubs. You've got your fingers in a lot of places! I don't do resolutions as I feel it's a set up for failure!

I'm going to miss you, Celestina. Wishing you much happiness as you start this new year. I'm not sure you if you want to return to blogging, but when you do, I will put you back on my side bar. You have been a dear friend for years, and one of my first and most special blog sisters. :)

lots of love to you, ~Sheri
