A new year.

There's something so satisfying about being in a new year. I used to get those page-a-day calendars (Mary Engelbreit, of course) every Christmas for the new year. I loved tearing off the front page and having that thick, thick stack of pages. The year was mine, I used to think every time I started off with that calendar. Full of promise, new memories, and probably a fair share of low points too.

But this quotation by Oprah Winfrey totally captures both the unpredictability of the year and the wonder of getting an automatic fresh start.



What do you have planned for 2013?

  4. Amazing quote! I used to love those rip off calendars but I was so to throw some of them away if I liked the pictures! So now I just have a regular calendar...
    Happy new year!

  5. Love this quote, and the fact that you like Mary Engelbreit! My mother and aunts introduced her to me when I was younger and I still have little books of her illustrations on my book shelves.
    Happy New Year!
