Here it is, the second week of January, and I'm finally getting around to writing down my goals for the year. I decided a while ago that I don't like the word 'resolutions', because it sounds so final and imposing. So I set goals, instead. Over the coming year, I'll update with my progress. I may even expand on this list. For now, here's my outline. 

1. Be a better friend. 
          I'm a great friend when I see you, but I'm not always the best at keeping in touch. I want to change that. Look out, friends, because I might just insert myself into your life a little bit. Cards, letters, email, Skype, visits, all will be utilized. 

2. Be healthier. 
          This is the standard resolution people always set. I have some weight loss goals, and I want to eat better (more veggies, less fast food). It's a lifestyle change, so I know it's' going to take a while. Ultimately, I'd like to be more flexible, fit my clothes a little better, and practice yoga a lot more. 

3. Try one new recipe a week 
          I got two cookbooks for Christmas, and a bunch for my wedding. Plus, I'm always finding something good on Pinterest. I want to expand my cooking abilities and stop hoarding recipes. Added bonus: I'll probably share some of them here. 

4. Be more creative 
          This is pretty broad, I know. But I like having my hand in several different creative things. Writing for sure, is one of my favourites. I've also become enamored with embroidery and home decor. There's lots that I enjoy doing, and I want to spend more time creating and less time consuming. 

5. Travel 
          My brother comes back from California in March, my cousin gets married in May, our anniversary is in August, and Luke graduates in December. I would love to celebrate all of these with a trip somewhere. Granted, this means that I have to work hard in order to afford such things. But it seems worth it, to me.

  1. You're going to have a great year; I can tell! :) We have many of the same interests - writing, recipes, home decor, pinterest. Too bad we don't live closer to each other to better share them! Oh well, blogs work!
