While we’re not big believers in New Year’s resolutions, we do like to have some goals (lofty or not!) that we would like to reach during the year…  We think these are definitely achievable, don’t you?

    I love the list! How fitting the 1st and last mentioned are truly the full circle to a warm feeling deep down inside 🙂 Simple, classy, applicable and to the point, just might be the best list I’ve read thus far! XO Kelly

    We should all aspire to such lovely goals, full of grace and beauty! Will there also be time for coffee breaks? I was given a card to a local coffee house and the one thing that I would never allow myself for was a decadent cup of java during the day, but now it is a welcome treat and makes me feel all revved up!
    Happy New Year, full of strong wills. My Father says, “All it takes is one strong woman….and you know your Mother will have the last word!” Where there is a will, there is a way!

    I love reading people’s resolutions! Dunes and I started writing down a whole bunch of resolutions on New Year’s Eve and then it just boiled down to one—Slow Down. We hope to sip, savor, smell, linger, and wonder a little more this year.
    Happy New Year to you!

    What a wonderful list – I think it’s all very gracious and attainable! And, you might even inspire me to finish my one little needlepoint project. I won’t tell you how long I’ve had it!! 🙂

    Great thoughts for a fresh new year! Some of these are on my list as well – especially the first, because otherwise what’s the point?!

    Great list and doable! Ummmm, except the vegetable garden. I have given up fighting the deer off and happily now hit local farm stands. xo Cathy

    Love your list! I want to make plans and see them through with my blogging friends…a type of friendship I never anticipated in my life, yet one that is so sweetly welcomed!

    What a lovely list…I need to add a few of those to mine!

    Great list…for me the meal/celebration one would be the hardest…but I know you ladies can do it with flair (and flowers!)
