New year, new start.

It's that time again its the start of a new year, and a new beginning. I love the feeling a new year brings. ( Maybe not putting the christmas decorations away and taking the tree down. If I could leave them up till April I would.) With a new year comes those resolutions every body makes. And usually I give up and put it on next years list. Something seems different about this year, it feels like this year will be a really great year. I made a little list the other day, I am sure I will be adding to it through out the year. But this is what I have so far.


-Get fit and healthy.

Not just to loose weight. But that is a big part of that goal. I want to take care of myself by eating healthier and staying active.
Like staying more committed to the gym and going on as many hikes as possible.

-Spread some of my dads ashes on mt. hood.

One of the things he wanted to do before he died was climb mount hood. So me and my sister wanted to hike as far as we could and scatter just a little bit.

-Take up film photography again.

I used to take lots of film pictures. I have about nine rolls right now that are not developed (Which I need to develop so I am going to do that tomorrow. I have no idea what is on any of those rolls. So exciting. But this year I would like to do it more. I just happened to get this beauty for christmas that I am oh so excited to use.


-Get my etsy shop up and going again. And stay committed.
I had it up and constantly adding things. But then kind of just stopped. Granted I didn't promote it enough. So this year Id like to really go at it full force.


-Learn to knit
I have tried and tried again but always got so frustrated with it and gave up. Not this time I am going to be come a knitting machine. And maybe by Christmas next year I will be able to knit some presents :)

-Go on more road trips.
I went on a few last year and I loved them. Road trips are the best you get to bound, play good music and just have a good time.
I think my best road trip is still when my friend Lori and I drove to San Francisco and Los Angeles. I hope I can make it back this year. Maybe a summer road trip that would be the best.


-Have more girls night outs.
Lately I have been feeling so old. Using excuses like " I have to get up early for work" "I am tired" blah blah. I remember when I was 21 and I would go out till the sun came up get a few hours of sleep then go to work. I think I am out of that stage of my life. But I need to plan more girls nights out. Maybe a dinner, or a movie, craft night in or whatever but I think I need more of that in my life.

I think I have a good list going. I feel like its all obtainable I feel pretty good about this year. I am excited for the future to see where it leads.

Do you have any good goals for the new year?

I hope you all a fantastic new year.
