Where did the snow go?

Examiner.com: New Year’s traditions around the globe

This snow is just a memory now…


It’s back to greenish brown earth and bright blue skies. Not terrible but there’s something exciting about snow around the holidays. And I’m not talking about the disgusting wintry mix due to hit Washington New Year’s Eve — that’s just going to ruin plans for the evening, not contribute to the festivities or make things cozy and lovely.

I’m still mulling over resolutions, which I always make and break within roughly the same week. Last year, I recapped the adventures of 2008 rather than make any promises I know I’ll break. Tomorrow, I’ll do the same for 2009.

I did, however, prophesize last year that 2009 would be the best year of my life and while that’s a hard thing to measure, it was a pretty darn good year.

Will 2010 be even better? We’ll have to wait and see… but come back tomorrow for a full recap of the past year in photos.

Do you make New Year’s resolutions?

    I was glad to see the snow gone when I get back to DC because it meant parking was easier to find haha! But at the same time there was something pretty about having it right around the holidays.

    Ugh. The slush that snow leaves behind is so depressing! But I don't want snow around all year long! ha ha. I don't make resolutions. But I do reflect on the past year!

    I love the New Year's traditions posts! It is so interesting to read about traditions. Love it!I try to make "goals" vs. resolutions. I think (even though it's essentially the same word) goals makes me feel more proactive/positive whereas resolutions sound kind of negative? I do definitely enjoy making lists so it's fun to reflect!
