jan 1 simple wish on new years day


Happy New Year, my dear friends and readers! It’s the start of another year. A fresh start with 365 days that lie before us; each with possibility. I am optimistic about what lies ahead and am excited to see what the new year has in store. I am already planning two upcoming trips, so I can say with a straight face that 2017 is already off to a fabulous start! I wish the same for you…new-years-wish-via-revivingcharm


New Years Day 2016


happy new year from reviving charmI am not a parade person but this morning I will be watching just enough of the 127th annual Rose Parade to support my friends who will be riding prominently on one of the floats. I am also hoping to catch a glimpse of a few other friends who are working the sidelines. While they will be exposed to the crisp California weather, I will be viewing the parade from the family room in the comfort of my own home. I will be sitting by a toasty warm fire eating delicious scones freshly baked by a wonderful neighbor. By midmorning I will be enjoying a New Year’s Day brunch at the oceanfront Terranea Resort to celebrate a loved one’s birthday. It will be a busy day but my year is definitely off to a great start.

What’s in store for you today? Whatever you plans may be…I hope they are filled with lots of fun and lots of laughter. Happy New Year’s Day!
