Cheers to a New Year

December 30, 2011

It’s hard to believe this year is coming to an end. I say that every year, but it is a little more true for 2011. So much has happened to me this year – good and bad – and that makes it hard to imagine what 2012 will bring.

One of my favorite quotes of all time is: “Remember yesterday, dream about tomorrow, but live for today.” I always try to remind myself of this because it can sometimes be hard to appreciate the little moments of everyday life.  


Remembering Yesterday – Looking Back at 2011





  • Found my sister’s, Erica, wedding dress – which got me thinking about my wedding even though I wasn’t engaged




  • This post was Freshly Pressed (my first and only claim to fame)






  • I gave in bought a China set – for $25
















Dreaming About Tomorrow – Looking Forward to 2012


I’m really bad about keeping New Year’s resolutions (isn’t everyone?), so I try to make resolutions I can stick with for life – life resolutions that happen to be made at the New Year. (ok, it’s probably the same)

My new life resolution? To make more lists. Boring, but necessary – my memory is fading fast and I truly think it’s because I try to remember everything I’m supposed to do rather than just write it down. Now, I’m going to start writing it down. It’ll help me become more organized and focused – which are always goals I try to achieve.

I’m not sure what 2012 has in store for me – but 2011 has taught me to cherish every minute, because it all goes by so fast.

Have a happy and safe New Year’s. See you 2012!
