What if you spent every day looking for One Beautiful Thing?

My Dear Acquaintances

My dear lovelies,

It’s midnight here in New York, the ball has just dropped, and I want to say thank you. You’ve made my 2014 so much more fun than I ever expected, and I look forward to spending 2015 in your delightful company as well. I raise my glass and wish for us all a happy, healthy, successful, peaceful, hilarious new year, full of beautiful things and art and dance and music and ducks and good laughs and Etsy fails and lots of (good) surprises!

My dear acquaintance, it’s so good to know you
For strength of your hand
That is loving and giving
And a happy new year
With love overflowing
With joy in our hearts
For the blessed new year

Raise your glass and we’ll have a cheer
For us all who are gathered here
And a happy new year to all that is living
To all that is gentle, kind, and forgiving
Raise your glass and we’ll have a cheer
My dear acquaintance, a happy new year

All of those who are hither and yonder
With love in our hearts
We grow fonder and fonder
Hail to those who we hold so dear
And hail to those who are gathered here

And a happy new year to all that is living
To all that is gentle, young, and forgiving
Raise your glass and we’ll have a cheer
My dear acquaintance, a happy new year
Happy new year!

I have committed to spending part of every day looking for at least one beautiful thing, and sharing what I find with you lovelies!
