While 2013 certainly wasn't one of my best or worst years, I was still kinda mumbling "Good Riddins" under my breath as we were all welcoming in 2014. However, as much as I dislike the underlying feeling that in January I'm supposed to make
promises resolutions (so I can break them in February, then beat myself up for the rest of the year), I'm surprisingly much more upbeat about starting off the year with a clean slate. The thing is, not setting any goals definitely didn't work for me! So this year I'm in a good place and actually WANTING to achieve some goals. There. I said it. Don't judge me.
So the first thing I did was get a daily planner that was so stinkin "me" that I would actually want to use it. I chose Whitney English's Day Designer. I love it! And, btw, if anyone ever doubted my long time affair with black and white stripes, here's the proof.
Speaking of love, my other long time love is all things Kate Spade. Jennifer just got me this Things We Love book for Christmas and I hate to say I may have drooled on it a little. These two books and my bible are what's getting me pumped to take on this New Year with a bit of vim and vigor! My desire is to be able to add the word NEW to my vocabulary and use it frequently; as in NEW ARTWORK, NEW WEBSITE, NEW FRIENDS, NEW NUMBERS (as in dress size, cholesterol levels, income, you got it…) This year I want to accept all those Happy New Year's wishes as blessings so that by the end of the year I can finally say, this was a happy year. With that said, may you all have an amazingly HAPPY NEW YEAR. I mean it!!
