// welcome, twenty-fifteen. //

I think that all my feelings about beginning a new year can be summed up in a few Anne Shirley quotes (because Anne and I are kindred spirits, and you are a lovely person if you understand that reference):

“Oh, it’s delightful to have ambitions. I’m so glad I have such a lot. And there never seems to be any end to them– that’s the best of it. Just as soon as you attain to one ambition you see another one glittering higher up still. It does make life so interesting.”

“Isn’t it splendid to think of all the things there are to find out about? It just makes me feel glad to be alive–it’s such an interesting world. It wouldn’t be half so interesting if we know all about everything, would it? There’d be no scope for imagination then, would there?”

“I don’t know what lies around the bend, but I’m going to believe that the best does.”

“Tomorrow is a new day, with no mistakes in it yet.”

So yes– Happy New Year.

Happy 2015.

Happy clean slate, blank page, new beginning.

Let’s live this one abundantly, filling it with laughter, memories, and adventures.

May we all live brave, love well, and always make much of Jesus.

{love, em}

P.S. My lovely madre’s new blog. ^-^

  1. Great quotes! They make the new year seem exciting for sure. Kindred spirits indeed. There was no way I could not get that reference!

    I was wondering if I could use your “Reasons for Eucharisteo” idea on my blog? I would link back to you of course. Credit where credit is due, my dear.
    I loved the idea of listing the little things. BTW I follow you on Pinterest. You have good taste. 🙂


    1. Hey, Jillian! Thank you! It’s so lovely to meet a fellow kindred spirit. 🙂

      Absolutely! But the real credit of the idea goes to Ann Voskamp and her book “One Thousand Gifts”, for it was her who inspired me. Seeking out the little blessings God sprinkles in our everyday lives is so amazing and joy-producing; you’ll love doing the lists!

      Thank you so much! ^-^ Your new blog is so wonderful; I just followed it, and your Pinterest too. Can’t wait to see more of your posts!
