Starting Fresh in 2017

We spent a very quiet New Year's Eve as we have been doing for the past several years.  Before I left the house, I made the girls a special dinner of ground beef, eggs and of their favorites! 

We made reservations for an early dinner at Nolan's right here in town.  They always have the place decorated nice for the holidays and it gives you a real FESTIVE vibe!  Veal French was on the menu for me and Seafood FraDiavlo for Ben.  Let me just tell you...the peanut butter pie was delicious!!

A few "selfie shenanigans" when we arrived home!!

Then, we came home and watched New Year's Rockin' Eve until everyone got too tired...and retired upstairs.  We watched about twenty minutes of Anderson Cooper and Kathy Griffin...then the ball dropped...and so did we! LOL

I have a few thoughts as we say goodbye to 2016 and begin anew in 2017!

Be safe out there and cherish those you love.


That beautiful word is one that in and of itself will allow you to align your thoughts with your actions effortlessly. What can surrendering do for all of us? 


The path to total peace is through complete surrender. Reconnect with the present moment!


Be still… your higher thoughts don’t require words.


Set yourself free from all that you have chosen to worry about, including those limiting beliefs that set us up for failure.


This is a state of mind that cannot be bought or found for that matter. 

Feel Good

Outer circumstances come and go. It is in you to decide to take them or leave them.

When the here and the now dwell in you, you have found peace and the innate ability to cultivate a life where wishes and goals are fulfilled without resistance. And that is the beauty of Surrender.

Happy New Year!

If you could choose ONE word for 2017...what would YOUR word be?

My word is FOCUS!

Wonderful photographs, Jeanne! The mean you ate looked absolutely deeelicious; especially the pasta dish - yummy!

My New Year's Eve and Day were spent very quiet and reflective. It gets pretty insane here in Philly on New Year's, so I spent much of yesterday in a quiet part of the city.

Loved reading your thoughts! Happiness and Feel Good were my faves. You're so right about that!

Happy New Year, my friend!
X to you and the girlz

Happy New Year to all of you! It was nice that the weather cooperated so you could have a stress free night out too.
