A New Year's Wish

A wish from the heart {my heart}

New Year's Eve Wishes by Candle Light

Wishing you much joy in the new year that's
just ahead  
of us all... tick, tock...

Let's make the new year
one of positive action, knowing we can do 
Anything we set our minds to in 2011.

I'll be spending New Year's Eve with my husband
We're going to make a concoction called 
with tasty 
Elderfleur liquer, a bit of prosecco & Pellegrino water
Just click the link above for the recipe.

  I think you could omit the prosecco
and just use Pellegrino and it would be 
a lighter cocktail and quite tasty too.

 We'll be indoors... watching
lovely old movies.  

The Thin Man series
and The Enchanted Cottage...
they will probably run well into
the weekend.

Oui...  Cocktail in hand, white candles,
pale roses around the maison.
And my petite menu...
 Crab salad with homemade green goddess dressing
and a bit of crusty bread from our local bakery

And of course, a bit of fluff from Zeke & our cats!

What are your plans?  
I would love to hear. 

I'll be taking a few days off to take in the new year
with my family, but will chat with you soon!

Wishing you the best
for 2011
- et -
Most of all L-O-V-E
that you give yourself
to try new dreams!
Happiness to you

While it all sounds lovely and so very tray sheek, I'm afraid mine won't be as romantic. If C.D. has his way, we'll be at Canton 1st Monday followed by an evening of watching taped Pawn Stars!
I'll be taking a brief hiatus as well, but I wanted to wish a very Happy New Year and all the best in 2011.

Hello Tracie... I have missed our visits and wondered how you are feeling? Your New Year's Eve sounds perfect with just your husband and Zeke and the kitties at your maison... I love your pastel roses, so pretty!... I also love the old, old movies like you do too... Happy New Year to you!... xoxo Julie Marie

Hi know how much I think of you and wishing you the very BEST that life has to offer in the year ahead!

Our plans aren't grand, just a small family fete filled with treasures from the sea to eat (aka stone crab claws and Fl lobster tails:-).

Sounds like a perfectly romantic way to bring in the new year, Tracie. :) We're staying home, too - and making homemade turkey (yup, turkey!) pizza and sipping our homemade "Fat Cat-Happy Dog" wine while watching the ball come down on TV. Cheers to you and yours! :)

Your evening sounds lovely! Love the recipes you selected, gorgeous photos set the mood. My family will probably play the Wii and we will have Chinese food and some treats.
It will be low key, my children want to have friends over. My husband will hunt New Year's Day and probably won't see the ball drop.
It will probably be a silly evening, with lots of laughter. Happy New Year to you n' yours~

Your evening sounds wonderful! {my kind of weekend} I'll need to do more of that in 2011. We get together with friends every New Year's eve for dinner and games ~ the opposite of your quiet night at home, but it's all good. Your pics are so pretty and inspirational. Have a wonderful weekend!

Isn't the Enchanted Cottage a great movie?! That is one I can watch over and over again. So sweet. Another reminder of "Don't judge a book by it's cover."
