Well, today is the very first day of 2013!
I dressed up and welcomed in the new year last night! (Though, in all honesty, I think I was actually already in my pajamas when midnight struck.) This outfit was a lot of fun to wear. I felt like a mixture of Snow White, Alice, and Minnie Mouse all the while still completely feeling like myself. My Daddy says he thinks I'm a chameleon with how different I can look at times in photos. The dress has a sweet peter-pan collar which I'd been wanting dress with that style of collar for quite awhile. And, Momma found a wonderful red lipstick for me to try.
In the grand picture of life, a collar on a dress and a red lipstick really aren't all that important. Yet, they were two little things that made me smile yesterday.
On the last day of 2012 I was blessed to spend lots of time with my Momma and my Sissy. I danced a little and visited with friends at a get-together. Then, I headed home around 11pm and took deep breaths while the neighborhood became very noisy with guns, fireworks, and such.
All in all, it was a nice last day of 2012. Though, I think in the future I would rather spend the evening with a small group of people instead of a bigger party. I realized that I just don't really enjoy big events that much anymore. They aren't bad, but I would rather do something low-key.
The only thing that I really missed was Luke. He's been sick so I didn't get to spend time with him, dance with him, or wish him a happy new year in person. But, that's okay. It was still a very blessed day and ending to 2012.
So, now I look forward to 2013. My hope and prayer is that God will use me for His glory to speak truth and share love. I don't know what tomorrow holds for sure much less an entire year. But, I'm looking forward to it and trusting that God will direct my steps as I seek Him.
How did you celebrate and welcome in the new year?
