2012 Resolutions

Resolutions- Do you make them? Are you good at keeping them?
Because I am horrible! I think every year I have a resolution to work out more and I think I might possibly work out less than I did the year before, if that is even possible. My problem is that I don't take them seriously. I tell my self "it would be nice if..." instead of truly thinking about things I would like to accomplish in a year.
Then last night, while going through reader and playing catch up, I came across Katie from Punkin' Heads and Dooda Loo's. She blogged about the changes she saw in her own life in 2011. It was great reading how she grew this past year and what she learned. It made me reflect and want to do better. I want to have a list for 2012 so that on Dec 31, 2012 I can look back and see all I have accomplished and how I have changed. Thank you Katie! {big hug goes out to you}

I will say that I look back at 2011 and smile. My family went through trying times and we came out the other side stronger! I feel very blessed to have such an amazing husband and I can't believe our little boy is 16 months old!
On June 24, 2011 I started this blog and have met some AWESOME people, I am so grateful for all of you! Then on August 1st I announced the opening of my etsy shop! That has been such a blessing for me! I get the chance to do something I love and meet more amazing people and create personalized pieces for them to enjoy! {thank you!}

So with 2012 coming in fast, this next year I want to set some goals for myself.
Here are my resolutions (in no particular order):

-Go to bed earlier
-Do daily devotions
-Read the Bible in a year
-Fully design my blog and figure out what all I want it to be
-Come up with a new design for my shop each month
-Keep in touch better
-Have date night every week- even if we don't leave the house
-Learn to slow down and listen to my hubby more -(sometimes he talks in circles and my hearing fades a bit- sorry honey)
-Get involved in a good cause- local or online
-Start a workout routine- something! anything!
-Be a better daughter
-Pray with my husband more
-Drink more water
-Grow an herb garden

-Finally paint & decorate our master bedroom
-Cook more- 2-3x's a week
-Grow in my faith
-Fully trust in God EVERY day

This last one is not so much a resolution as it is a prayer---
I pray God helps us grow our family this next year, one way or another. I pray He works a miracle.

Thank you all for being here with me in 2011 and I hope you are still around in 2012!

Have a blessed 2012!

  1. Hoping that your family does grow, it is sometimes so hard to place all our trust in God, and isn't that crazy? Something I really need to work on too. We've been trying to start a family for a year, and I get so frustrated. Need to remember that it is on God's time, not mine. Anyways, wishing you a happy new year!

  2. I love your resolutions. I need to sit down and work out a list for myself.


Thank you for your comments, I love hearing from you
