Christmas 2012 —SCB

We had a wonderful holiday filled with family, friends, light and laughter (despite some super gloomy and wet weather). My baby niece is here from San Francisco, and I can’t think of a better Christmas present. I love this time of year when everything slows down, and we can devote hours to a board game or a slow meal. I hope everyone enjoyed some quiet and some jolly times too.


I am excited to spend time with my close and extended family through the end of the year as well as play with new projects and recipes for 3191Q. We will be back in this space in 2013 with new inspiration and images to share.

I am excited for the new year and have been thinking of a few resolutions:

* Get outside. Once upon a time our family would go on a weekly hike no matter the weather. I would like to return to this tradition. My teen and pre-teen may initially protest, but we are always glad once we are out there.

* Take a class outside of my comfort zone. Painting? Dance? Woodworking? Not sure yet.

* Gratitude. I want to make sure I express my gratitude to the people in my life, and my family’s life, who enrich us, care for us, and inspire us.

* Plant a garden. In the past few years, I have only managed some herbs and tomatoes. This year, I’d like a proper vegetable garden.

Thank you for helping to make 2012 an amazing year here at 3191 Miles Apart. Happy New Year!
