Cheers to the New Year!

This past year has been an amazing one.  Not only did I spend two months volunteering in Costa Rica but I also became engaged to the most loving, wonderful man while we were there.  On top of that, I’ve transitioned into a new position at work and spent time with family and friends making great memories.

Now, in the first days on 2011, I can’t help but think that it is going to be an amazing year.  I’ll be getting married, Todd and I will establish the first home that will truly be our own, many of my friends will be getting married and some will be expecting their first little ones.  So, in contemplating what this year will bring, I’ve been thinking about goals for the coming year.  Here are a few things that I hope to accomplish this year.

  • Get ready to be a wife (!)
  • Read at least 15 books
  • Eat healthier and exercise more in preparation for the wedding and then stick to it
  • Downsize and buy less
  • Reduce my credit card debt by a significant amount, at least 25%
  • Begin to learn French
  • Enjoy the beauty in the every day and remember that my glass is more than half full

I’m off to a good start.  Today I finished my first book of the year and bought materials for learning French and in a few weeks, Todd and I will being our pre-marital counseling which I am really looking forward to.  So, although I’m not one to make resolutions, I’m resolved to make the next year the best it can be.  Cheers!

  2. Let’s do it! I’m having trouble starting my second book but I know 15 is reasonable.
