One of my resolutions this year was to start a blog. So, here I am my first blog entry…Ever! I am all about celebrating and living life to its fullest. What better way to celebrate life than by capturing it? And so begins my venture to capturing life. On January 1st many people have traditions and rituals they perform to start the new year on the right foot, up until this year I never really gave it any thought. Since I didn’t really have any traditions for January 1st I thought this year would be a good time to start one or two. Aside from watching my alma mater, The University of Georgia, play in a bowl game I decided today is the perfect
day to watch the classic New Year’s Eve movie…When Harry Met Sally. It’s one of my favorite movies of all time! So here I am New Year’s Day evening sitting on our comfy red couch (which feels like you’re sitting on a cloud) snuggled up under a soft baby blue blanket with snowflakes on it, watching When Harry Met Sally, eating a bowl full of popcorn topped with white truffle oil and parmesan cheese. If you haven’t had it you must! My husband does not like popcorn and that is the only kind he will eat. I will post the recipe on the blog so you can enjoy! This is the perfect scenario for some prime scrumbling! The definition of “scrumble” is when snuggling with the one person that loves you no matter what meets an environment that is incredibly comfortable. It’s amazing and I highly recommend it. Also, if there is not a special someone in your life, scrumbling with a pet or a family member is just as lovely!
Back to New Year’s Day traditions. Another tradition, one that has been going on for as long as I can remember is taking down the Christmas decorations. This tradition always makes me sad. Christmas time is always so glamorous and bright, and when the decorations come down it seems to make life a little dimmer, which is partly why I wanted to start blogging. Anytime I have something a little sad in my life I have to balance it out with something happy. On top of starting a blog and watching When Harry Met Sally, I am going to follow in my best friend’s footsteps when it comes to New Year’s Resolutions. The number of resolutions she makes is directly related to how old she is. So this year I will make 27 resolutions.
