How did it get to be January 2, 2013 so quickly? It was a busy December for me with lots of catering (thank you everyone!) and then we were away for Christmas with both of our children… and then, BAM, Happy New Year! I don’t know about you, but even though it arrived fast, I am excited about the possibilities!
I’m not really into New Year’s resolutions but in the past few days several friends have shared interesting links and I thought I would share with you some of my favorites.
- A short video of a 90 year-old couple
- A fun rendition of The Twelve Days of Christmas
- A TED talk of how one man named Jason Roberts began to change the world… and wants you to do it too!
Since I am still baking almost every day, yesterday I decided to bake a pie for someone to celebrate the New Year. As I thought of who might be a good recipient, I soon realized that many of my friends are on diets right now… and I didn’t want to be the reason someone fell off their diet. I continued to think about a recipient, and found one right in my neighborhood. One of our neighbors is an older man who lives alone… and that’s all I needed to know as I put together a quiche for him. When the quiche was ready, I walked over to his house with a friend and surprised him with a piping hot quiche. My neighbor beamed a smile at me and I was reminded of how good it feels to do something nice for someone… “just because.”

Here is wishing you all a very happy, healthy, joy-filled New Year!
