Happy 2012

Happy New Year and Happy Anniversary!  It has been 1 whole year since I started this here blog and I am proud to say that I have 107 posts, been viewed 3112 times and made some fabulous new blogging friends!  How amazing!  I cannot wait for this year to get under way and to continue with such great success.

Today is the day to make goals for this new exciting year.

Blog:  Post 10+ times a month.

Literature: Read 30 books this year.

Cuisine: Cook 4 new gluten-free recipes each month.

Photography: Obviously keep taking pictures.  Learn how to use my fancy new software.  PRINT and FRAME my photos.  Take a photography class!  Have wedding disposable camera pictures developed.

Athletics: Train and run two 5k races and one 10k race.  Go hiking!

Life:  Purge the things I don’t need.  Aka. get rid of excess “stuff”.  Be more organized!!!  Be a more active Kiwanian.  Nip laxidasical-ness in the rear I’ve been resting on.  If at all possible, visit a different country.

Education: Get my CDA (child development associates degree).

Wow! Quite a list!  I’ll be keeping track of my progress in my Phoenix’s Ambitious List throughout the year.  I can’t wait to start accomplishing this years goals 🙂

Welcome to 2012, it’s going to be a BIG year!

    Hahahaha– that is the funniest picture I’ve ever seen! 🙂
    Good luck conquering your ambitious list in 2012! I hope you do posts on your new GF recipe adventures. I always like your food posts.
    I still haven’t decided whether I’m going to make any resolutions or set any lofty goals. For now, I’m content sitting on the couch and watching movies. I’ll get there eventually…

    • You have such a busy summer every year, I don’t blame you one bit! I think all my work would be done after 15 hour days all summer! Take your time and relax!
      I am excited to get on track. It has been a busy winter already so im looking at this as a clean slate to begin a new chapter. I usually do cook 4 or more new gluten-free things each month I just don’t always blog about it, this’ll be a good reason 🙂

  2. That! I have to try! Happy NYear 2012!
