Hello New Year. I'm excited to discover what you hold. There are so many moments to be lived.
Last year I realized that I really like resolutions. Even if I don't keep them all, I like to make a list of things to keep in mind. It's like a wish list. If anything at all gets checked off, I'll be happy.
This year I thought I'd pick a single word to keep in mind along with my more specific resolutions (thanks to Sue for this idea). It was very difficult for me to settle on one word, but I finally decided on "intent." This year I'll be finishing school and looking for a new job, so it's the perfect time to think about where I want to go and to start figuring out how to get there. I want to live with intent. I want to think about my dreams and start making them come true.
Now, on to more specific (and less heavy) goals...
Learn tapestry crochet (so that I can make Cloister mittens)
Make a Butterscotch Cardigan
Create my own crochet designs
Take a knitting class
Bake bread on a regular basis
Eat more whole grains
Make at least one thing from each of my cookbooks
Take a yoga class
Host a tea party
Have more game nights with friends

Do you have any words or specific goals in mind?
