with the new year sneaking up on me and being just around the corner, i thought i would take a few moments to share some of my resolutions with you. the new year always feels like a fresh start and a new beginning and a great time for change.
cooking - i need to spend more time in the kitchen. i am embarrassed to admit how much we have been eating out/ordering in over the past six months. we just started to do it more and more because it was easy but it is really such a giant waste of money and so impersonal. i got a few new cookbooks over the holidays and they have me really excited to jump back into the kitchen and do some meal planning.
family walks - i miss getting outside each evening with the whole family. it's a time to reflect on the day with no distractions and to get some fresh air. there just hasn't been a whole lot of time but it is a family tradition that i love and that i want to start again.
adventure - i want to be more spontaneous with family outings and road trips. we had so much fun with the last minute drive me made to nashville and it was fully of adventure and memories. i want to do this more often.
sewing - i have not sewn much this past year. another thing that i just cannot seem to find time for. i miss my sewing machine and plan on spending more time with her this year.
baking - sunday's cake was a lovely tradition that i am excited to start up again.
giving - i want to give more. i want to volunteer my time to help people and show my children the importance of giving back.
doing something for myself - maybe i will take a cooking class, a knitting class or a dance class this year.
those are just a few of the things on my list. i am really excited about them. what are some of your resolutions?
