Encouraging Hearts and Home: Are You Ready for a New Year?

It's almost New Year's Eve; are you ready to ring in the new year?  We don't really do anything special but I will be cooking and we'll probably watch a movie even though none of us will ever make it up to midnight.  

And Now, It's Time for This Week's Encouraging Hearts & Home Blog Hop!  


Join your Encouraging Hearts & Home Co-Hosts each week for encouragement and support for your heart & your home. We hope to provide a space that builds each other up and lends a helping hand along the way. With all the negativity in the world, let's shine a positive light!

  1. Happy New Year Joanne! Thanks for this fun link up and for being a great blogging friend!

  2. I can’t make it up past midnight either, Joanne. I linked two posts today because I think I forgot last week! Thank you for hosting and Happy New Year to you and your family!

  3. Thanks for featuring my favorite books post! It's such fun looking back at books from this past year and choosing the ones that stood out. I'm also glad you highlighted the post on fudge...I'm going to check that out right now! :)

  4. Happy New Year! Like you, it will be a quiet one here. We will probably make it to midnight but barely! :)

  5. Joanne, wishing you a celestial new year!

  6. We do the same Joanne, food & Movie at home is always a lovely way to bring in the New Year (even if we're asleep at Midnight) 😂

  7. New Years Eve has never been a big deal for us. I'm not sure why! But, I will definitely be awake long after midnight...thanks, insomnia! Here's to a fabulous new year!


    1. Yeah, we never really made a bit deal out of it either. We used to get Chinese food take out each NYE but even that stopped many, many years ago.

  8. Happy New Year, and thanks for hosting and always taking the time to comment!

  9. I actually stayed awake until just after 10 (but I was definitely in bed by 9-- LOL!)

  10. Aw thank you for the shoutout! I can't wait to recap the rest of our trip! Still so much goodness to come!
