Resolutions: 14 for 2014

Looks like I'm a little late to the New Year's Resolution party, but what's a few days in the course of a year, right?

You may remember me sharing that I'm not a huge fan of "resolutions" because such broad, open-ended goals seem like set-ups for failure. Instead I have found that a few specific "to-do" type resolutions are much more achievable, and who doesn't love a good list? I decided to come up with 14 goals to focus on for 2014:

Even with such a promising list of goals, one of my problems is that I tend to forget about them as the year draws on. This year, I decided to add a touch of design to my resolutions. Now I have them printed out, hanging right next to the coffee pot at home so I will see them every morning and take note. Read a book! Wash your face! Sew that baby a dress! Enjoy some cream with that coffee, but let's keep it to a tablespoon!

You may notice some repeats from the goals of years past... I am bound and determined to write more letters! Friends, help keep me accountable on this one (and send me your address, please.) In general, I really hope to create more this year. With a new baby, sometimes it seems that I barely have a chance to shower... but I am not going to let me down. 2014 will be a great year!

What a great list!! The only goal I could squeak out was not to get pregnant....but after eating 5 chocolate chip cookies last night, I think I need to try harder to figure something out. :-)

That is a fantastic list! I love it. I think number 2 will have to be on my list...sometimes you get through the day and just forget. What a beautiful way to start your 2014!
