2011 was a big year. I got married this summer and launched Love U Madly in September. I can’t wait to see what 2012 brings, but I have a few New Year’s Resolutions that I really hope I can keep. Yes, like everyone else, I hope to return to the gym (Physique 57 has sent me countless “where have you been?” emails) and I have a few privates ones that seem more like birthday wishes that I feel like I’ll ruin if I share them. But here are a few that you are now witness to…
1. Stop losing shit. I lose everything. You know you have a problem when you are shocked and excited to open your wallet and see that all of your credit cards and IDs are in their proper place. (This only happened once all year, by the way.) Most things I end up finding eventually, except for um…a particular very special diamond engagement ring. That seems to really have been lost.
2. Keep blogging and keep growing. I feel so fortunate that in four short months I have received such great feedback and a following. I hope to continue making a nice balance of really fattening delicious recipes and surprisingly healthy ones, challenging myself with DIY projects, and being braver with the style posts (I get a little nauseous over the photos of myself).
3. Don’t get hysterical. When I was in 2nd grade, my teacher wrote this down on an index card for me. I had the tendency to get emotional easily. I still have the index card which reminds me to take a deep breath and calm down.
