On the 12th Day of Christmas

One of the things that has always struck me funny about Christmas in the USA,
is that the majority of people put their tree up so early,
but then, right after Christmas day is over,
everything is taken down so quickly.

There is actually a song about the 12 Days of Christmas.

Homemade Pasta

I love moments like these.

I love to sit down and work and talk to our children.
We end up talking, laughing and really building "team work".
Nothing more precious.


Now, as we leave a year behind and embrace the new one,
I like to have some goals.

I know,
some people don't like "new year resolutions",
but I do.

I see goals as opportunities.
No goals, no target to hit.

Speaking of goals,
In a couple of weeks 
I will start training for my 3rd full marathon.
26.2 miles.

I have a plan, 
but it will be harder than the ones I had in the past 2 years.

And since I will be running lots of miles,
I see pasta making being definitely a weekly activity.

Win, win.

Stay Frugal,
Daniela
