For Old Lang Syne

With the New Year comes a new start for many of us. A chance to start over and change things in our lives. Eat healthier. Travel more. Take more pictures. Though some would joke that New Year’s resolutions are meant to be broken, these changes we make show a desire for a better future.


But rather than looking only to the future and what we want to change, the New Year also lets us look at the past and remember those who have made an impact on our lives. Have a friend you haven’t talked to in a while? How about a favorite teacher who changed your life? Or even family you haven’t seen?


For the sake of “the good ol’ days,” we at Terra Blanca encourage you to remember and strengthen the ties to friends and family. Gather around the table, share a good meal and stories of the year, laugh, sing, start a new tradition or continue an old one.


For Owner ReNae Pilgrim, one tradition centers around family; however, it's nt always the family she's related to.


“My parents are in Wyoming and Keith’s are in California, so it’s hard to go see them this time of year with the snow and bad weather,” she said. “Instead, we spend New Year’s with our Tri-Cities family.”


Guess who brings the wine.


When you’ve pulled together friends and family to celebrate the changing of the calendar, here’s another idea to ponder. While examining 2014 to find that New Year’s resolution, also find a few things you’re proud of. What did you rock at in 2014? It can be small—like finally finishing a puzzle that took over an entire table or taking guitar lessons—or huge—like starting a family or graduating.


Feel like sharing? Leave a comment here or on our Facebook page with what you’re proud of from 2014.


Whether your 2014 goes out with a bang or with a few close friends, raise a glass, and let no one be forgotten this New Year. Here’s to all of you, our Terra Blanca family! See you in 2015!


Veni, Vidi, Vinum!
