As quickly as it seems time flies, it is also quite something to sift through one's memories of the outgoing year. How many things have happened! How many beautiful and happy and painful and bittersweet moments! I will take them together and wonder at it all.
I want to thank you for taking the time to visit Tollipop this year. I love coming here myself and find your company to be one of the great sources of that pleasure. Thank you for your kind words, for making me laugh, for spending a small part of your day in this cozy little corner.
I wish you the loveliest new year ever. I hope it is filled with gratitude, confidence, faded yellow cardigans, French cafe music, smiles, pussywillows, adoring looks, dance cards that rarely have an opening, a bedtime story reader, a long, winding road, a feeling that you are home, a fox, a golden ticket, Mr. Darcy and his impossible smoldering gaze, a small hand that fits inside yours, a garden, a reunion, and a perfectly comfortable chair.
And that is just for the month of January!
Dear reader~be safe, be well, and be happy.
Happy, happy New Year!
