I‘m working on refining my goals for 2013. I’m not so much thinking about all the specific home project ideas yet (although there are plenty of those running through my mind — I will definitely be sharing a list of those goals soon!), but I’m thinking right now about the way I want to live this year.
This Gather post features a bit of a ‘visual representation’ of some of the thoughts in my head and how they might ‘come to life’ once I take action! As a visual person, I love collages and inspiration boards! While these types of goals may not appear too lofty, being purposeful about them will definitely will improve the quality of our life at home. And living an intentional and authentic life matters a lot to me.
A few of my hopes and aspirations for 2013:
::slow down to enjoy more home cooked meals around the table with my family, now that I have my lovely new kitchen I’m kind of excited to use it!
::more puttering, cleaning, tidying and entertaining in my home, now that the distraction of remodeling is almost over, I want to go back to inviting people over and just enjoy the simple daily process of taking care of my home again!
::be more organized and creative with the little details in life (for instance, I have always loved carrying around pretty little notebooks in my purse to write things down so I will remember them later — yes, I have an iPhone but I still love the feel of a real paper notebook!).
::do better with consistent paperwork filing and business organization, so I feel more in control!
::add a new layer of functional and creative details to our home to inspire me and help me to organize our family with greater efficiency, such as strategically placed cute chalk boards and pretty pin boards!
What hopes and aspirations are you gathering for 2013?
