yesterday, as the brand-spankin-new year was ushered in enthusiastically, i pulled out my phone & quickly tapped out a list of resolutions. when the list was complete, i realized i had - indeed - dreamed up exactly thirteen extremely specific goals for the coming three-hundred-sixty-something-odd days. i know, it sounds ultimately contrived - thirteen goals for two thousand thirteen? but, really, i am a sucker for things like that. so i went along with it.
i'm choosing to keep my goals quiet & private this year, if only for the notion that sharing them might jinx them. they are lofty, & personal, & exciting. and i fully intend to reveal them, as they - hopefully - come to fruition.
until then, i'm sure to be found scribbling away in the may designs planner in the photo above. justin surprised me with it on christmas eve, & it's - dare i say - perfect. there really is something to be said for a beautiful notebook, or planner, or binder, or notepad. and well, this one is right up my alley. thank you, justin.
there was so much excitement & fun over this year's holidays, which i can't wait to share in this space - christmas with my family, whirlwind trips to shreveport, a dear friend's engagement, another road trip to wilmington [this time in a moving truck], etc. not only that, but i am anticipating the writing of a 2012 refection post. i'll admit, it all feels a bit overwhelming, what with all that happened in this past year. but i am going to put something together, & soon - you know, before the new year isn't quite so new anymore.
here's hoping that 2013 proves to be everything good we have all ever dared to hope for.
