Letter from the Editor: First Steps

It’s January dear readers! A month of new beginnings and cozy sweaters and (finally) time for reading good books. But January isn’t most people’s favorite month, even though I believe it should be. I love January for many reasons – the first is that it’s my son’s birthday month. I received one of the two most precious gifts of my life in January – how can I not love this magical month? Next, for those of us who live here, it is quieter. A bundled-up walk on the beach will reap many treasures not found in July – beautiful shells and some of the most spectacular sunrises of the year. And that restaurant you’ve been meaning to try? This is the month. As much as I love spending time with family and friends celebrating the holidays, January is definitely more relaxing. If I come home in the evening and put my PJs on by 5:30 pm, it’s perfectly acceptable right? And, while I’m lounging in my comfiest PJs, not only will I read, I can also catch up on all my favorite television shows that I missed during the whirlwind of November and December. January is also a wonderful month for reflection. I’m not one to make a lot of resolutions, the one-day-at-a-time approach has always worked better for me, but I do spend more time journaling and planning when the warm sunshine isn’t calling me outside. Gratitude and appreciation are my keys to making January shine – even when the weather isn’t the best, and there’s nothing special to do.

I wish you a beautiful January. And, as always, I am so appreciative of your continued support of Sasee. We are here because of you!

The beginning is always today.
