2. characterized by firmness and determination, as the temper, spirit, actions, etc.
After disappearing for seemingly the longest time, am finally back, ready for the new year with many hopes, dreams & resolutions. After ringing in the new year with sparklers & white lanterns, with candle light & much champagne, with wonderful company & a beautiful (albeit unseasonal) night, I feel it was a sign of how the wonderful year ahead will be. . .
The holiday season may be over, but this does not mean you cannot wear sparkles, or dream of chandeliers, or drink a glass of champagne every night or use your beautiful gold cutlery-- admire & use these luxuries as often as you can to make 2012 a truly sparkly year!
