As we wrap up another year (they go faster and faster!), I have looked back at all the experiences and visits with family and friends during 2016.
Hospitality is something that I have always enjoyed and embraced and last New Years Eve I had the pleasure of welcoming one of my dearest friends and her family to our home. It was not one of my most original parties, as we decided last minute to pull it together, but sometimes that is freeing. It really doesn’t have to be perfect…just heartfelt.
And, it’s also a lesson in having party supplies at hand. Because you never know when you might get to host an impromptu soiree! And, holidays come around every year, so don’t fret if you don’t get to use those sparklers or streamers or great cocktail napkins this year. You can use them next year. As they say, success is when preparation meets opportunity. And, that’s the way to have a successful party….always be prepared! I hope that you had numerous reasons to celebrate this year and that the year ahead brings joy, adventure and many good times!
Happy New Year to all!
Your posts are heartfelt and inspiring. Thank you for being a beautiful part of my blog visits!
