Thirteen Things About 2013

Well, it’s the end of another year and I feel the need to write an obligatory New Year’s post. First, though, I realized that I never shared our holiday card like I have in the past (you can see previous ones here: 2009, 2011, 2012). This year’s card wasn’t very Christmasy because, frankly, I got a late start and wasn’t confident that I’d be able to design, print and send them out before New Year’s. So it’s more of a year in review, really. I’m not dedicated enough to write an annual holiday letter but, looking back, we had a pretty big year so it felt appropriate to include some of the milestones from 2013.

My new year’s resolution for 2013 was to explore and I feel like we did a pretty good job of that.


Fourteen Goals for 2014

  1. Work smarter, not harder.
  2. Turn the computer off and just walk away.
  3. Write the outline for that children’s book that I’ve had in my head for 3 years.
  4. Make space for spontaneity.
  5. Break ground on our home remodel so, you know, we can actually move in someday.
  6. Step outside each day, get some fresh air and remind myself of who I am and who I want to be.
  7. Spend less time cooking and cleaning.
  8. Spend more time creating.
  9. Replace negative self-talk with encouraging words.
  10. Replace complaining with gratitude.
  11. Replace screen time with face time.
  12. Remember that happiness is the journey, not the destination.
  13. Trust my heart.
  14. Breathe.

Happy 2014! May the coming year unveil the deepest desires of your heart.
