Great Things Always Begin From Inside

Today’s photo of the three little robins reminds me of the skeksis from Jim Henson’s The Dark Crystal. Remember that amazing movie!? Look at their lips? So adorable. They look bug & worm drunk.

Go touch an elephant! Happy New Year 2012


Happy New Year 2012 blogger friends! Our family matriarch Liz & my late Nana were in Thailand a few years ago (?) and got this elephant. They touched a real elephant as that brings good luck and prosperity! My husband and I touched this sweet elephant tonight! C’mon prosperity!
We also went to a lovely potluck that taught us 2 Finnish traditions. We chose 3 tea cups with items under them. I chose bread (abundance), a cork (celebrations) & a pink piece of string (baby girl). Omg. My husband got the blue string … So twins are the order fir next year. Yeah, right.
We then went outside to a lovely campfire. Over the fire, we each boiled tin on big spoons. We flipped it into a pail of water. The shape that comes out tells your fortune for the year. Here’s mine:
