~Inspirational Fortune for 2014~To Receive True Love, Give It First~

To receive true Love, give it first.
Such a simple thing to do.
It's a wonderful inspirational saying for 2014.
I want to change some things in the New Year.
But most of all,
 Stop and Smell the Roses.
I'm going to try and take time everyday
 to stop and reflect.
We all get so busy with our schedules, to make that special time
would help us all be more positive with our lives. 
I wanted to share with you some fortune cookies 
I brought to Yuri's house for a 
New Year's Day Party.
I bought some fortune cookies at a Chinese restaurant.
I didn't have enough time to make them during the holidays.
I found some pretty colored paper at the dollar store.
My friend, Jackie and I dipped the cookies
 in white and dark chocolate.
Then wrapped them up in the pretty paper and
 made a 2014 sticker for them.
Jackie made the sign, she's so good with paper projects!

Wishing you all
 Good Fortune, Good Health and New Blogging Friends
for 2014!! 


  1. What a beautiful idea and so colourful. Have a wonderful 2014 x

  3. How fun and what a great idea. I would love for you to link up to my 198th Inspire Me party. - - - Hope to see you there. Hugs Marty

  4. Those are so pretty Jody, what a fun idea!... I too am seeking serenity in the new year, infact I posted about that as my guiding word for 2014 (one of them)... sometimes even blogging seems hectic, and like you said, we all do need to "stop and smell the roses"... by the way, I cannot wait for Spring to get her so I can REALLY smell my roses!... I never make new years resolutions, just hopes and dreams... and plans... much love, xoxo Julie Marie

  5. I love the idea to dip them in chocolate! Perfect! and the pretty paper looks great on that colorful bowl of good fortune! Hope you have a great year and that you get to slow down and reflect on good things :)

  6. I made it a point years ago to live in the was around the time my kids were leaving the nest and I realized how fast the years go by!

    The cookies are fabulous and I bet they are out of this world dipped in chocolate. What a fun idea. I made them once long ago and boy, you really have to work fast folding them! And the fortunes inside were a bit on the naughty side!! ;-)

    Happy New Year to you and Stan!
