I love the start of a new year like I love Mondays. There is just something so exciting about a fresh new year. 365 days spread before you do with whatever you choose. I have decided to make 2012 the best year yet! I’m not a big fan of resolutions. Resolving to NOT do something seems to set us all up to do just what we have resolved not to. I like to make a list of goals and clear plans how to achieve them.
I wanted to share some of my goals with you all because I plan to share my progress here on my blog throughout the year. Also, I feel like putting things out there makes me more accountable to actually do them;)
♥Quilts for my kids. I don’t actually know how to quilt but I plan to learn. I have made a few “cheat” quilts but I really want to spend time making something wonderful that will last for each of them. I hope that one day they will pull them out for their own kids.
♥A year of Saturdays. I will be capturing a glimpse into our life by taking photos each Saturday for the entire year. I hope to create an album for our family at the end of the year with all of the images.
♥A new house. This has been in the works for a long time and I am confident that the time is now. I am excited to start a new chapter in a new nest.
♥Write and photograph a book. I have been wanting to do this for a while and am finally going to get off my rear and do it. I have a few ideas fleshed out I just need to decide which to start with.
♥Disney world. We are planning on surprising the kids with a big trip to Disney this fall. It will be their first time and I am so excited. I think that they are at the perfect ages to really get the most out of the magic of Disney.
♥Lose xx pounds. Now I’m not going to say how many because I’m not certain that it needs to be a specific amount. I just know that I want to feel good about myself and be able to wear the kind of clothes that I love. I never had to worry about my weight until after I had kids like a lot of moms. I cheered and danced before I had my kids so I was always in shape. Traditional workouts are a bit foreign and not at all fun for me so I need to fidn something that works for me. Wish me luck!
♥Date Nights. My hubby and I need to start taking time out for ourselves again. Take the time to connect as husband and wife not just mom and dad.
♥Learn to play my guitar. I have had a gorgeous guitar for a year now and have not learned how to play anything. This year is going to be a musical year. I ended 2011 back in my choir at church(yay!) and plan to keep the music flowing in the new year.
What are your goals for 2012?
