Welcome 2017

Happy New Year to each and every one of you and welcome 2017!  I’m not going to sit here and write about all of the amazing resolutions I’ve made as that isn’t really my thing.  I don’t feel that you need to wait for January 1st to make changes in your life.  Every day is  a new beginning so I don’t buy into all of the hype.

We had a low-key entry into the year and it was just what the doctor ordered.  The one thing we had trouble with this year is finding a pomegranate.  For my non-Greek readers, it is a tradition that we have and my friend Greg over at the Pappas Post did a good job of covering so go here to find out more.  Well after 5 supermarkets we found out that there has been a pomegranate shortage in Canada since October.  So my hubby being the innovator that he is, bought a bottle of POM juice and wrote 2017 outside of our home.  That counts right?!?

New Year’s Day was surrounded by family, which was perfect.  The kid got the coin from the vasilopita for the second year in a row.  Good luck my little one, may it always surround you.  I have no doubt that this year will be another amazing one for you.  As for me, I have a few things up my sleeve.  I can’t give too much away until everything is said and done but you’ll be the first to know.  Well maybe 3rd after my family and closest friends 🙂

Whatever 2017 holds for each of us, I have three wishes for you: my first wish is that first and foremost we have our health, as without it we are nothing.  My second wish is that we are not afraid.  Fear manifests itself differently to each of us.  Whatever that fear looks like to you take it by the horns and challenge it.  Don’t be scared to try something new: get that new makeover, apply for the new job, go skydiving, whatever it may be that is holding you back.  And my third wish is that you love with all of your heart.  Be vulnerable to love and see where it takes you.  Yes you may get hurt but baby let me tell you, when it is right, it’ll take you on the ride of your life.  May my three wishes lead to an amazing 2017 for each and everyone of you!!

A little ditty about Jack and Diane...no really in all seriousness I'm a daughter, sister, wife and mother. I'm a Greek-American, who has transplanted in Canada. As a first time mom I'm sharing some things as I go along.
