Happy New Year to you! Did anyone have any fun New Year’s Eve adventures? Was anyone brave enough to face the frigid temperatures for a memorable night in Times Square?
I wish I could say I did something exciting. Although, I did make the trip into Times Square many years ago, I spent this year in bed…with the flu. My younger son and I came down with it on Wednesday so we stayed home all week while my husband and older son headed up to Killington, Vermont to ski. I wouldn’t have skied in those negative temperatures even if I was feeling 100 percent anyway! (Those lunatics). Well as it turns out, my husband didn’t ski because HE came down with the flu as well. Luckily, it didn’t hit him as hard and luckily he had our friends there to take my son skiing with them!
They had a great time as always. I just hope everyone else stays healthy!
I am sure many of you traveled to some exciting places over the winter holidays and we are excited to see where you have been! Be sure to link up at our next Take Me Away Party opening this Thursday at 7:00 pm. In the meantime, let’s take a look back at the trips you linked up for the December, Take Me Away Party!
It looked like such a fun night out with the kids…and I loved all the pirate decor!
What kid doesn’t love an aquarium? It’s even more fun when they have exhibits where you can touch all the animals. Sounds like another fun day!
I never even knew this place existed! How fascinating and what great winter fun for the whole family!
From winter, we swing back to fall with Carole from From My Carolina Home…
On a recent trip to Nashville, Carole spent the day touring the lovely Cheekwood Gardens. Check out all her inspiring pumpkin photos and important tips for visiting this charming property.
Carole continues on with a tour of the Cheekwood Mansion…
Who doesn’t love a good mansion tour? Such exquisite architecture, unique details and interesting stories behind the objects in the house. It sounds like you need to set aside a full day to see everything!
Susan from Our French Oasis shares how she celebrates the joy of the season…
Through cooking, decorating and relishing the change from autumn to winter, Susan reminds us not to get so caught up in the commercial side of the holidays. She also shares some of her traditional recipes which I am sure you will be adding to your files.
Her beautiful post will leave you feeling inspired and with a desire to make a difference in the world. Something for us all to think about.
No wonder Southern Living voted Madison as one of the top 10 small towns in the South! If you love architecture, be sure to swing by and join Pam on her stroll through this beautiful historic town.
Beautiful photos and great tips on the best time to go. I am still in awe of the scale of those trees!
A series of photos capturing the true beauty of this faraway land!
A visit to a unique museum in this small town just two hours north of New York City sounds like a fun getaway!
