YAY for 2013!! New Year’s Eve is my favorite holiday. I love celebrating new beginnings and gearing up for the start of a new year. Since I can remember, I have made a resolutions list ~ and yes, I actually accomplish most of my goals. Usually there are a few stragglers that linger to the next year’s list, but the important thing is to have goals.
“A man without a goal is like a ship without a rudder.” Thomas Carlyle
I am so excited to be blogging this year because there is so much going on. Things you can expect to see on the blog this year…
Building my business ~ My business launched in September and so far it has been going really well. I have been working with some amazing clients and fabulous events. I will be blogging about some of the things I am working on and the business lessons I am learning along the way.
Lovely Ladies ~ As I build my business, I am inspired by gals who have taken steps to launch a new business or project. I have been chatting with some wonderful woman who are sharing their stories with me. These ladies have found their calling in life and are using their God given talents and gifts in pursuing their dreams. Exciting stuff!!
Venture 52 – Keeping with the New Year’s resolution spirit ~ and pursuit of forward positive thinking, becoming a better person, helping others, making a difference in the world, finding balance, etc. ~ there will be 52 projects featured that are inspiring me to do all the above.
Also, we are expecting a very important arrival any day now. As I type this post, I am 38 weeks pregnant and ready to be a mama.
Did you set any resolutions this year? Please share
The start of a lovely venture…
I have roughly two years before the big 3-0. While two years seems like a long time, I know it is going to be gone fast. What can I accomplish in the next two years?
I have always longed to have the home with the white picket fence, a wrap-around porch and a kitchen table topped with a big pitcher of lemonade next to a plate of homemade chocolate chip cookies. In reality, I am living in a small studio apartment in the city – no picket fence, no porch.
I live with my amazing husband (I call him Sweets) and my two dogs, Giada and Apple. While I never pictured my life where it has ended up, I couldn’t be happier. Being a military wife has brought me to the east coast. Far from where I grew up in California, this is our home. As I have struggled to finish my degree while working full-time, my desire to create the perfect home and wonderful home-cooked meals has haunted me for the last few years. Normally, I have only had a few moments to heat up anything in my freezer that didn’t have freezer burn. And that is all about to change…
I left my full-time job to launch my new business and focus on finishing school before the arrival of my first baby. I will graduate right before he gets here. Yes, a boy My goals before the next five months…
I welcome you to join me on this lovely venture as I work to accomplish my goals, build my business and have fun along the way.
