With all the rules and regulations done,  now it is on to my part of the hop.  I am starting with an apology for my leg of the pictures are being held hostage in my camera.  That is being held hostage in my daughter-in-law's car!  So, the challenge will begin with no picture and hopefully it will be loaded by Sunday evening.
    My twin Grandsons, Jacob & Logan, turn 7 today!  And their mom turns  ____ today! (I know better than tell her age on a public forum!!)  So we are in Oklahoma for parties.  I left my page on the desk in problem.....I made a different one at crop on Friday night.  Then took the picture and...refer to paragraph ?
  My challenge was to do New Year's Traditions or Superstitions...but usually they are the same.  Most of us eat Black-Eyed Peas on the first day of each year.  My mom said it was for good luck...I secretly think she just wanted to be mean to us!  They taste just as I imagine a bowl of mud would taste like!  Mmmmmm..I'll have seconds!  This year, Steve, my hubby, made Hoppin John, which is a fancy name for peas with tomato and jalapeno!  I have to admit it was tastier than ever before. 
   So my challenge to you is to scrap your New Year you have a fancy meal, go for a winter swim, take in a movie.....tell me what on a page.  I know it's journaling, cause most of us have not thought to take pictures.  But what a good addition to your "Book of Me"? 

   Do your page and upload it to the New Year's Tradition thread....then off to the next blog....which will be  Luisa

Want an extra prize?  I am giving away a Maya Road Album with some Maya Bling, for anyone who leaves a comment and becomes a follower.  (I know there is no layout to comment on, so read beyond this post and comment here on one of my other projects)    Thanks for dropping by and never forget to Keep Dreamin'
