Happy New Year


Sun through the window, originally uploaded by lorda.

I hope everyone started the year off well. We went to a big party, where I knew just a couple of people. It was fun but not quite what I might have chosen to do. We survived, stopping by another friend's house on our way home, then celebrating a little with the kids when we got home.

I have been thinking about my resolutions for the last couple of days. In general, my theme for the year is simplify and balance. So here are some of the things I'd like to accomplish this year.

Career/Professional
-write every day to work towards completing two projects
-officially set up my business

Home/Family
-take the kids on an international trip
-go on a date with my husband at least twice a month
-remodel a room
-continue to get rid of stuff and organize

Personal
-get outside at least 3 times a week
-get to know my city

There's actually a lot more I want to do, but I'm going to take it one day, one week, one month at a time, continuing to evaluate as I go. i feel positive about the coming year. It feels full of possibility and change and for me that's a very good thing.

I'd love to see everyone's resolutions--link below if you want. And Happy New Year!
