Ring In The New!

Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow;
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true. --Alfred, Lord Tennyson

Happy first Monday of 2012! I hope your year is starting off right. Any resolutions? What do you want to let go with the old year? What rings true for you in the new? Perhaps it's the short days and long dark nights of winter in the Pacific Northwest, but I've been thinking a lot about light... and the light that each of us has to shine.

The wise and wonderful PVE wrote a lovely bit last week about being more of oneself. It certainly rang true to me. I'd like my year to be about shining more of my very own light and reflecting it out to the ones I love... and to the people I cross paths with every day. I'm hoping that this is a year for glowing and for growth and for all kinds of new beginnings.

Wishing you bright and happy days ahead! XO


  1. What a wonderful and lovely sentiment - one of my resolutions is to be more true, too. No use hiding your light under a bushel where it won't be seen, right? Wishing you love and laughter in the 2012!

  2. Those pictures have me dreaming of the sure is cold enough! I have a few resolutions, one is getting more organized and getting rid of the excess "stuff" and guess what I have been doing all day long...yep throwing out one garbage bag after another of stuff I don't need!! Feels great......good luck with your resolutions too! All the best to you Jeanne in 2012!

  3. Beautiful photos - I love the idea of having one's light shine more brilliantly. Wishing you the best in 2012!

  4. Happy New Year, Jeanne!! I have no doubt that you will carry your own light into this new year. I didn't really make any resolutions, as I'm constantly trying to do better.

    I do think there are some things I could let go of. I want to worry less about what others think and let my truest, best self shine through.

    Here's to many more chats in this new year!

  5. What gorgeous images. My resolution is to be more organized with my time and my home...working on it!!

  6. Apparently my resolution needs to have something to do with making sure your blog feeds get to me - I didn't get yesterday's post, so bummed I missed it!

    2012 is going to be a great year - full of light and laughter - I can feel it!


  7. Thanks for the shout out to me - myself and I.
    Being true to one's thine self is the way to be.
    Good luck to you in the new year now.
    day 4.
