I know I am about a week late on this topic, but I wanted to talk about New Year’s Resolutions. Last year was probably the first year I ever actually made one; it was to get healthier. While I don’t restrict myself to the diet of a rabbit I have been more mindful of what I eat. Also I made more of a commitment to get in-shape. I don’t go to the gym 5 times a week, but I make it there 1-2 times, which is a huge improvement from the past, so I am going to chalk that up to a win! This year I am going to commit to doing things that make me happy. We all get sucked into doing things out of obligation of others, putting their needs before our own. This year I am going to work more towards doing the things that make me happy and fulfilled. What about you, are you turning over any new stones for the New Year?
It’s cold outside there ladies and gentleman. If you have to go and bear the cold weather make sure you are wrapped up. If not I hope you are wrapped up in a warm blanket, by the fire, with hot chocolate, and a good book!
HAPPY NEW YEAR!
2013 has been a year of ups and downs – aren’t they all? I don’t know about you, but I am happy and looking forward to a fresh start in 2014. As I get older I am much more sensitive about time, and I don’t want to waste any of it. What can I accomplish next year? What goals will I set for myself? Here are a few resolutions I have, what about you?
1) Read more. I am slowly killing my brain with reality tv and I need more enrichment.
2) Learn how to use my DSLR. I need to make the effort to figure out how to use all of the settings.
3) Do more outdoorsy things. Living in DC you forget that there are great parks and hikes close by.
4) Expand my cooking knowledge. Maybe this year I will tackle a new ethnic cuisine, Indian?
5) Be better about blog posts and follow through. The blog is a very fun hobby for Jessica and me, but sometimes it can be overwhelming. I need to stay organized.
6) And as always refocus my energy on getting lean and fit. Read this. Great tips on how to really get the results you want, and to be realistic about it.
We are looking forward to re-energizing our creative side with you all in 2014. Have a safe and Happy New Year’s!
This past month has been really crazy; I haven’t had the time to sit down to design and address 250 cards to everyone this year. However, I don’t think I can avoid it completely-there are a few family members (Grandma’s) and friends I know who would still appreciated getting a nice holiday note.
This year to avoid stress and save some money I opted to use Postable.com. Postable created a super easy way to write & mail, beautiful (100% green) Holiday Cards– simply choose from a selection of 250 cards, type up your message and Postable prints, stuffs stamps & mails them all directly to your friends and family for you. So easy! Postable is also a great way to send thank you and every day cards as well.
Don’t worry, it isn’t too late to send your cards-if you order Holiday cards by 12/18/13 they will still arrive to your loved ones by Christmas. Bonus- Use the code holiday13 you’ll get 20% off your order
The coffee enthusiast is probably the easiest person to shop for during the holiday season. There are always new flavors/types of coffees being introduced – and who can say no to a cute new mug!? Here are some items that cover all of the above.

Lately, I have needed to remind myself of this a lot, so I wanted to share.
