On New Year’s Day my husband and I went to an open house party at the home of a friend we hadn’t seen in over 10 years. We’d lost track of the “old crowd” after we moved away and changed professions. However, facebook had reconnected us and we found that our friend had been having an annual New Year’s Day open house party for many years!

This was the most enjoyable way to spend the New Year. We saw old friends and business acquaintances that we hadn’t been in touch with, even on facebook. It was so much fun to see the surprised look on each of their faces when we went to greet each of these friends as they came in the door. The food was plentiful and full of good wishes – black-eyed peas, coleslaw, collard greens and more, ensuring that everyone’s New Year would be a positive and prosperous one.

I have a good feeling about 2010. Nothing but positive thoughts have been flowing through my head since that day. I have this excited, pumped up feeling ~ like you get when you have just returned from a tradeshow or education session. Thank you Frank and Fran for a wonderful start to a new decade!
