It is a New Year once again

A whole new year has passed and last night, while watching the New Year show at Times Square and waiting for the ball to drop, I looked for a quote to wish friends and family. This seems to be my annual ritual on New Year’s Eve now.
This year, I decided on the following:

“And now we welcome the new year. Full of things that have never been.”– – Rainer Maria Rilke

Wishing everyone a wonderful New Year of things familiar, of places and
faces near and dear; and yes – “full of ‘great new’ things that have
never been”

And for me, things that have never been will definitely include my word for 2016 – Consistency!
Consistency in blogging which is why I decided to give it a try by joining the Ultimate Blog Challenge. Rules for the challenge are pretty simple – blog every day of the month that you register for; comment on at least a couple other posts; share your post for others to read and comment on.
I will try to use a couple of helpful tools to help achieve this goal – like prompts at The Daily Post, as well as memes I used to enjoy participating in when I was posting more regularly. 

Resolutions have not worked for me and I ended up trying to work towards achieving goals last year which also kind of did not happen. I will try working towards them again so here it is:

I will post my list of reading challenges and details on the above treasure map in tomorrow’s post.

Here is to 2017! And for my one photo a day, before we take down the ornaments and put them away, one last photo of our tree:
