New year jewels

As the year closes, let us remember to hold

The lessons learned

And those moments of joy that

We experienced over the past year

Close to our hearts.

It would be such a shame to say the whole year was a waste!

My jewels are family, friends, nature —

And you, dear blogging friends!

Let’s make the next year better and kinder for everyone and everything on our planet.

  1. Beautiful message, beautiful images! LOVE the one with the sheep. And of course, as I shared on your Instagram, that final photo makes me realize why I love winter so much! 🙂

    And you’re absolutely right, it would be a shame to say the whole year was a waste because there were so many jewels.

  5. I’m here to wish you and your loved ones a very happy & healthy 2021. And thanks for hosting. I can never seem to use the linking tool when I’m on my phone, but can on my laptop. So, most times I lurk without participating.

  7. We will get past this time of virus and bad government decisions– if people are patient and follow the rules, it will be better. And I absolutely love the shot with the sheep!!

  8. A very strange year…. I feel like I missed doing so many things, and I experienced a lot of emptiness and loneliness. I have great plans for 2021… just not sure what they are yet.

  9. Yes, we must let go of the negatives of 2020, embrace the positives that 2021 will bring and hold tight to family, friends and nature. Your images are magical and your words inspirational. [Helen]


  10. Hi Lady Fi, wishing you and your family a very happy and healthy New Year.
    And about 2020 I totally agree with you. Of course there was a lot of sadness, but we had our small precious moment of beauty as well. Life is way too beautiful to waste.

    Welcome to P✌️!
    Automattic is an office-less, globally distributed company, and P2 is our lifeblood. We built it to give everyone a place to see all of their projects and files, collaborate transparently, and to do it all without constant distractions.

    P2 organizes all your files, projects, and conversations on one screen, so your team can collaborate from anywhere. It’s perfect for remote teams, digital nomads, extended families — anyone who doesn’t like email or meetings (i.e., everyone).

    P2ing is way more than posting status updates. When you’re P2ing, you can:

    Add a document
    Embed images
    Or @mention your remote teammates.
    And you can do it all in a simple workspace where everyone can see and access everything they need.

    Never miss a thing.
    Real-time messaging, @mentions, and notifications mean no more endless group emails or lost docs. Never ask “Which version are we looking at?” again.

    Keep it private. Or make it public.
    Create secure internal teams, or collaborate with vendors and partners with a range of general privacy and user access options.

    Serious security for your data.
    Your P2 runs on — fast, secure, powerful, and built especially to give you the best possible experience.

    Fewer emails. More progress.
    Centralize conversations. Involve the right people, and see all your past work and discussions. The result? Better decisions, faster.

  12. Nothing is a complete waste, even 2020. It taught us lessons. It planted seeds of change. Going through my blog today, making a list of one post representing each month, I realized that. And I love your last picture. Happy New Year to you and I hope to enjoy another year of your lovely photos.


  13. Thank you for the perfect New Year wish and for sharing your jewels so beautifully throughout the year. Wishing you and your family a Happy and Hopeful 2021.
