As we ring in the new year, it is traditionally a time of celebration, but also inevitably one of contemplation - looking back, taking stock, thinking ahead, making wishes and resolutions for the future.
Here are some of my favourite quotes that fit the season to inspire you..
'Live in each season as it passes, breathe the air, drink the drink, taste the fruit, and resign yourself to the influences of each.' Henry David Thoreau
'God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.'
'I'm a great believer in luck, and I find that the harder I work, the more I have of it' Thomas Jefferson
'Everything in moderation, including moderation.'
And last but not least...
May your joys be pure, and all your pain champagne!
Ok, better go check on my moose osso bucco in the oven; it's almost time to crank up the rigodon and crack open the bubbly..
Peace & Love
