Happy New Year to you! Thank you so much for stopping by here this year - I've loved reading your comments and clicking over to visit you too. I think it was a good year for most of you - true? Are you excited for 2012? Do you make resolutions? I usually do not, but this year have a few in mind. I am looking back on what I accomplished in 2011, using it to inspire the resolutions for the new year to come. So, here we go...
I will spend even more time in 2012 reveling in our outdoors with my husband and son... I will continue to care for and improve on our home...
I will continue to take care of myself - even better care! In addition to traveling and seeing family, I had a lot of fun training for the half-marathon, so I will set another goal for another race in the fall...and lastly, though this is a BIG one, I will embrace the budget! I'm typically fighting it, upset that there has to be one, but I hope to approach it as an inspiring challenge this year. I have found, since I started the blog, that posting the things I love here helps me "have" them in some way, and helps curb the desire to go overspend on whatever they are.
Now for some truly, truly random images, mostly from the blogs I read, that inspire my resolutions for 2012.
First let me say I will put this photo on my bathroom mirror...She is Amanda Ross-- I love this photo of her. Everything about her in this photo, and article, will inspire me.
Next, I'm laughing. I guess I'm planning to do a lot about the bedroom, because I grabbed these four from the inspiration file without hesitation or thought... Also, I will pay attention to life's good details. I'll focus on the richness of them, the patterns, the textures, add to them, enhance them, take the clutter away from them, really notice them...And finally, back to nature. It does me wonders to spend much time outside soaking it in. I plan to be in nature a lot this year and hope to share more of it with you...Again, Happy New Year, thank you, and I'll see you back here next week!
