Welcome to 2013. . . it's a new year. One that I am looking forward to with anticipation. (I think, though, that I may feel this way every year. . . I don't know?). This year will be a year that includes some changes, some trusting, and some new goals.
Last week, my husband and I each made a list of our goals and things outside of our budget that we wanted to do. . . then we shared our lists. . . we now have one big list, and I know for a fact that not everything will get accomplished. But, we can dream right?
I hate resolutions, because they are usually not doable and most often are forgotten about within the first few months. I do, however, enjoy the sales that come with people trying to lose weight. . . Special K is always on sale in January and that makes me very happy! Plus, they came out with one this year that is chocolate and strawberries. . . it's a limited edition. . . maybe I should stock up?
Here are some of my goals for the year:
Slow Down (yep. . . this is going to be a hard one for me)
3 quilts. One of which, you will see a block each month. (I should probably start getting to work)
More card making. . . I miss it.
Albums need to be caught up. . . seriously, I am so behind.
Try new recipes (and I am already on a roll with that).
Garden. . . i am super excited about this one. . . I will have to share my journey with you.
This year, I chose a word that is my ultimate goal. To SHINE. Yes, I want to shine for Jesus and I want that to be clear in everything I do. I want to shine to my boys and to other moms. I want to not be so busy that I miss out on meeting a need or passing out some kindness. I am super excited about this one!
Okay, so I have some work for you. . . I want you all to comment (please) and tell me about your plans for the new year. . . ready . . . set. . . go!
