Happy new year! Since 2013 ended with a bang–I mean baby–I can guarantee 2014 is going to be a busy one. Here’s what I’m hoping to accomplish this year:
1) Enjoy being a family of three. No doubt having a kid will change up our former DINK lifestyle. But, I’m looking forward to it–especially showing our little one all the cool things in life and the hobbies we love.
2) Garden more. Of course. This year, though, I want to track how much we spend on supplies and how much we harvest. While growing produce will always be a hobby, it’s a dream to make it more about being self-sufficient–relying less on the grocery store. And, I’d like to have some level of efficiency.
3) Write more. For myself. This is always easier said than done. I write as my day job and write as a volunteer gig. This in itself is a dream come true. I have essays half-started in my head, though, that I want to get out. We’ll see where this one goes.
Best wishes to you all for the new year!
