A goal

As you are all highly aware, a new year is often coupled with a few resolutions or goals. I too have made some of these goals.

1. Have my own fabric line.
      --This will continue to be a goal for at least this decade. I hope it doesn't take that long, but if it does I will probably be the most grateful fabric designer you would ever care to meet.

2. Lose the last of the baby weight
     --My mother-in-law is giving me a great gift. The gift of a month with a personal trainer. If I can't lose the baby weight after that....well than I am a pretty sad thing.

3. Post on the blog every. single. day. for ONE year
     --I remember my sister, Annie, telling me about a blog that did just such a thing. Two sisters made a deal with each other that they would post something everyday no matter what.

Now this my not be a big deal to blogs that have sponsors or multiple posters, but it will be quite the feat for me. In my dream of dreams this will be a really BIG year for me. Regardless of whether it is or not,  I want every last emotion documented. Well, maybe not all my emotions. I'm not perfect you know. I'm not sure how much of my lack of patience I want documented for my children to remember. I'm kind of hoping to have that all worked out by the time they are a bit older so that they only remember a super patient mom. It's another goal.

So that's the deal. A post every day. They won't always be long, or interesting, or even have pictures, but they will be about me and my family. We aren't super exciting, but we sure love each other a whole lot.

'til tomorrow.

Love it, love it, love it! I just might be a copy cat and try the posting everyday. Because I want to be more like you when I grow up. :)

I think you should! Then we could encourage each other :)

Done. I even put it on my blog so now there is that commitment floating out into the universe. :)

I love your goals! I am excited to read your blog everyday. I have always wanted to attempt maybe next year. Good luck on the baby weight!
