A Fresh Start

So with the new year inevitably comes the obligatory “New Years Resolutions”.  I typically try to steer clear of this type of “commitment” but I do like to commemorate the day somehow.  This year to prevent myself from feeling upset by the cards I’ve been dealt and from forgetting the wonderful little joys that happen through the year, I am stealing an idea from the internet.  I am going to put a jar in my house, alongside it will be pen and paper, when soemthing good happens I will write it down and deposite it in the jar.  Then at the end of the year my husband and I will recount our good moments together (my husband will contribute to the jar too).  To me that is amazing, to be able to recount a year only in good moments!

I am also beginning a project that will last the whole year.  This will be my second attempt to suceed in this adventure.  It is the 365 days project.  For 365 days I will take a picture of myself.  I found the idea years ago and failed at my first attempt and it has been living on my bucket list ever since.  I present to you my first picture of 2014:
