4, 3, 2, 1…Haaaaaappy New Year!
The ball has dropped and it is officially 2014 here in Ohio! Wahooo!
What exciting things do you have planned for 2014? Are you a resolution setter? Generally I am kind of a year-round resolution setter. I resolve, I try, I fail, I try again less emphatically, I get inspired and I resolve, and we do this dance over and over again. *lopsided grin*
It’s called goals and aspirations, and it is definitely not a sprint to the finish! This month I’m going to share my resolutions and how to take two steps forward even though you might take one step back. *wink*
My Ongoing Resolutions (in no particular order):
- Save even more on my grocery bill and squeeze the most out my budget.
- Improve my guitar & piano skills and help my kids do the same
- Organize at least one thing per week, even if it is a little thing!
- Get fit, and eat less sweets.
- Make learning a great experience for my kids!
My Favorite Projects & Posts
I. Can’t. Choose! I guess if I had to choose, a few of my favorite projects would be my menu planner, my chore system, the pin & magnet board + dresser update, and my DIY rugs. The first two made a big impact in the function of our home and in simplifying our lives, and the last two…well the last two were just loads of fun and pretty to look at!
I guess these must have been reader favorites as well, because these projects seemed to be featured most across the blogosphere, for which I say a great big thank you! You guys make me feel special!
I’d also like to give a big thanks to IHeart Organizing, Apartment Therapy, Buzzfeed, Roadkill Rescue, and Knock Off Decor for featuring other projects I did this year!
So many neat things are going on in 2014! Just to drop a hint or two, there are magazine features (I can’t WAIT to share!!), podcasts, interviews, and contributor articles in the near future!
I will be contributing at SheKnows! I’m very excited to share my “expertise” (do I have any of that?…well I suppose trial and error have taught me waaaay more than I’d like!).
January 12th – 17th I have the privilege of joining with some fantastic bloggers, a few who are as new as I am to the blogging world, but have made a big splash! We will be sharing our confessions of what it means to be a blogger. We’ll also be hosting a Blogging Resources link party on the 17th, and a live chat from 3-5pm via Facebook & Twitter!
Mark your calendar, you won’t want to miss this! You’ll laugh your socks off at some of these confessions, and hopefully we won’t shock you too much!
Have a lovely New Year!!
