It’s 2011! I have a good feeling about this year. It’s already making me very happy!
“I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you’ll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you’ll make something that didn’t exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and to like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness and more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind.” Neil Gaiman
While I do like sitting down and making resolutions it can sometimes make me feel like I’m beating myself over the head with “you didn’t do this”, “you should have done this”, “you should have done this”, “you should have done more of…” You get the picture. So when Erin, Anne, Crystal and Bri made their lists of “non-goals” I decided to do the same and make a list of things I do well and don’t really want to change.
I jumped at new opportunities like assisting Rachel at a wedding and spent 10 days in France to name a few.
I blogged (a lot). That may sound silly but I feel like I’ve connected and met some of the most amazing people through blogging. I hope for more of the same this year.
I drank a lot more water and cut out a lot of sugar.
I took a lot of pictures.
I wore dresses.
I kept trying with my family.
I read my scriptures every single day.
I wore red lipstick.
I made my bed every single day. (This is a big one guys!)
I started taking salsa classes.
I gave in to the fact that I’m completely obsessed with this sweet thing.
Happy New Year friends! May 2011 bring you sweetness, inspiration and joy. xo
Is it bad this was a tough list to write? Why do I find it so easy to kick my own butt? Maybe I’ll make cutting myself some slack a new resolution.

There's just something about slipping into a freshly made bed that makes me feel like I'm on vacation, in a hotel. I love that feeling.
And red lipstick, you brave girl! I almost went for a tube of pink lipstick the other day but I chickened out.
Harlow is totally adorable and I loved this list, can't wait to see what you've accomplished in 2011!
happy new year to you too… very inspiring stuff! xx
oh your past year is so inspiring! I want to live more like that:)
