Party Like It’s 2011

“For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food, for love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson


 Happy New Year!  We got the party started this year by surrounding ourselves with friends and family.  The farm has been full of visitors all month long, and it has been wonderful!  I absolutely love having company in our home.  During the summer months, everyone seems too busy to visit each other for any length of time…but there’s something about the winter that promotes long conversations, long sits by the stove, and long meals together.

So, please excuse the spotty blogging while I:

 1) Cook meals with friends

2) Eat meals with friends

3) Play pond hockey with friends

4) Jam with friends

5) Sauna with friends {no picture of this for obvious reasons}

6) Go out to see this play with friends.

Regular posting will resume shortly…and speaking of that, I’d love to know what you all would like to see on this blog in 2011.  Last year I started doing a mixture of more personal posts, like the wedding series, and the tutorial posts that focus on implementing eco-habits into our lives.  Do you like this mixture?  Do you wish the blog was heavier on tutorials, or heavier on the personal details?

Thank you to everyone who reads Itty Bitty…I’m constantly finding out about new readers, and am suprised at how many of you there actually are.  It means so much to me to have you along on this journey with me, and I want to continue writing useful posts for you all.  I’m always open for suggestions on how to make the blog a more valuable part of your day!  Drop me a note anytime.  toniasimeone {at} gmail {dot} com
