"A brand new year, a brand new diary (as Bridget Jones says in her sequel)." Fresh tabula rasa, untouched new-fallen snow, optimism at a palatable apex. A new year's tradition at our house growing up was to have everything spic 'n span, affairs in order, everyone their affable best. Whatever happened on the first set the tone for the entire year. For the first time in a long while, I am uber excited and particularly looking forward to the new year. 2009 is going to be a bright and sparkly one.
Cheers to all of our beautiful ladies (and gents); we wish you the very best a squeaky clean new year can bring!
