happy new year

Like most people we enjoy celebrating the New Year, but we are introverts and big parties aren’t really our thing (especially not since we had kids…no hangovers for mama!). So, our New Year’s Eve was pretty quiet — I didn’t even make it to midnight. My husband and I drank a little champagne and talked about Viking sagas and manual camera settings.

On New Year’s Day we always get together with my in-laws for a lucky meal and a few fun traditions. We light twelve candles in honor of the 12 months of the year.

And, we write down the things from the last year that we want to leave behind, and then burn the scrap of paper in the fire. This year, my list was pretty short. All in all, 2012 was a good year. I’m looking forward to discovering what 2013 will bring.
