One More Candle and a Trip Around the Sun

Today I woke to celebrate the 1st anniversary of my 29th Birthday. While I love New Years, it never really truly seems like a new year for me until the 5th of January. A time to start again.

Now, I know I've mentioned I don't really like resolutions.... but the right side of my brain (or is it the left?) really likes to make lists of things to do. I like lists. I like them a lot. So here is a list for this year. I've actually done this every year for quite a while, but this year I'll share. They aren't resolutions, just ideas. If they don't all get done...that's fine by me. Ok, Ok, deep inside... I really like to see them crossed off. Speaking of crossing off... #21 is already done!


1. Move
2. Visit a new country
3. See a new state
4. Go to Elmo (the town)
5. Dance on a rooftop
6. photograph something beautiful by moonlight
7. Master knitting ..and pearling.
8. Sew a garment
9. Publish something
10. Paint something hangable
11. Build something with wood.
12. ice skate
13. cook something extraordinary
14. help someone in need.
15. produce something from recycled materials.
16. Read three classics
17. Read three new authors.
18. photograph something extraordinary
19. Go to a "You pick" besides a pumpkin patch
20. Watch 2 classic movies I've never seen.
21. Let someone else take my photo.
22. Join a new club/group
23. Rollerskate
24. Get a library card and use it.
25. Make a quilt
26. Do something that makes my family proud.
27. See a field of flowers
28. Ski uneventfully
29. Sleep under the stars.

Hey Stacey! I hope you had a good birthday! Just so you know I have a library card and I never use it, so maybe we can do that together! :)

Hi Stacey, Happy Birthday!! Don't worry, I'll always be older than you, I just turned the big 3-0 a few weeks ago. I'm just glad it's over with. Love your blog, and I'll try to keep in touch.

I think you've already done more of these than you think you have(like photographing something extraordinary...) . I know this is late, but happy birthday! I am glad you were born so that you could one day grow up and inspire me!
