A new year feels like a clean slate, much like the feeling when you clear an Etch-a-Sketch and the screen is a blank canvas waiting for your next creation. It’s a time when people can start fresh and embark on new adventures in the lives. Some set resolutions (which have never worked for me!), while others look toward a new year to gain perspective on life.
2011 was an exciting year for me, with a new job that has offered endless incredible opportunities. I know 2012 will only get better as my goals will allow me to grow further and take on fun, new challenges. The hubby also had an exciting 2011, as he transitioned into a new industry and continues on his path through school. I’m excited for what the future will present to both of us.
At home, I’ve been able to reclaim my free time, and get back to the things I love to do. And 2012 will be no different, with a multitude of projects awaiting me, including painting the trim throughout the house, finishing a cross-stitch I started so long ago, getting to those photo albums and planting an even larger garden! (Shhhh, don’t tell the hubby! He already thinks I grew way too much zucchini.) Of course there will be many other projects that make their way across my to-do list in the coming year, but I’ll ready to tackle each one with energy and contentment. What does your to-do list hold for 2012?
Cheers to a new year!
