How magical is it to open a brand new box of crayons!  Each one lined up perfectly so.  Not a blemish in the bunch.  Colorful, full of possibilities, oodles of options for filling in a blank slate.  They look so perfect, it almost takes convincing to dig in.

I remember opening a new box of crayons as a kid.  They way I felt as a kid is the same way I feel today when popping that box ajar.  Excitement, awe, daydreaming the possibilities.

That's the same way I feel about a new year.  So much potential, possibilities and promise.  I'm ready to dig in. Happy 2014, friends!


  1. What a wonderful analogy. Enjoy the day!

  2. Oh these are truly priceless moments you are capturing my friend. Happy New Year. Hugs B

  3. I'm very excited about this new year! I really haven't felt like this in the past... I love it. Great crayon opening moments there.

    Wishing you a lovely day and all the best to you and yours in 2014.

  4. I dreamt about crayons last night! I wonder if they represented the New Year? Hope not, they went through the dishwasher and melted. lol Happy New Year, Jackie. I'm looking forward to hearing all about your new adventures in the up-coming year. xoxo

  5. Aww I love it. I used to always get excited when opening a new box of crayons or colored pencils, too :) Wishing you a fabulous 2014!
