Happy New Year! I hope your year is off to a great start. It’s my first Mitten Moments of the year.

If you are new here, Mitten Moments are random moments from my week that I am sharing with you!!

Like so many of you, here in the Mitten, we started the New Year with snow.

If you know me, you know I love the snow!

There’s something so peaceful and beautiful about fresh fallen snow.

“I wonder if the snow loves the trees and fields, that it kisses them so gently? And then it covers them up snug, you know, with a white quilt; and perhaps it says, ‘go to sleep, darlings, till the summer comes again.” – Lewis Carroll

Last night, I made this amazing creamy chicken taco soup. The recipe came from my friend Stacy at Stacy Lives and it was delicious!

The perfect dish for a snowy winter day.

Do yourself a favor and check out her blog. It’s a yummy one!

Random Trivia

“Forty-five percent of Americans make New Year’s resolutions. The top resolutions are: to lose weight, get organized, to spend less and save more, to stay fit and healthy, and to quit smoking. While nearly half of all Americans make resolutions, 25 percent of them give up on their resolutions by the second week of January.”

Are you in the 25 percent?
