A new year is about to begin. How will you be ringing it in? It’s going to be fairly chill for us. My family is headed to their friend’s house in the early evening but they’ll be back before midnight. Of course, with a toddler who doesn’t always sleep very well, my guess is that we’ll all be sound asleep well before midnight!
But celebrated or not, the new year comes and brings with it that feeling of new possibilities. Well, and the joy of ordering Chinese food on New Year’s Day. YUM! Happy New Year!

I’m also planning extra simple meals on Saturdays and Sundays so that we truly can take a Sabbath and spend some time focusing on family and fun!
