Welcome to 2012!

Happy New Year!

I’ve become one of those people who just can’t believe how fast the world is spinning.  2012!

We don’t do resolutions.  Well, actually we do, but we don’t do them at the New Year.  When I decide a change needs to happen, I resolve to make it happen right then, if I can.  I don’t see the point of the “I’ll start on Monday” mindset since it implies that your goal isn’t important enough to start immediately.

Our most recent major resolution started sometime in early 2011 when we decided to start living in a way that would make big dreams come true. It took some difficult changes, and there were some nerve-wracking moments along the way, but it was the best decision we made in 2011.

As we look into the coming year, we are amazed that if all goes as planned, we will spend the entire year living that dream.  We still have to pinch ourselves on occasion, to make sure this is real!

We’re not exactly sure where the winds will take us in 2012, but we are sure it will be the adventure of our lives.

Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?

(Mary Oliver, ‘The Summer Day’)

    Well, since you used the line from my favorite poet, Mary Oliver, I’ll continue to think about that. I want to see the total solar eclipse. I want to finish one book. I want to live in Italy for three months of the year . . . and I want to mesmerize Neil so he will WANT to live there with me. Hahahahaha!

    I LOVE that you and Justin are living your dream, at least this one, and that from this one, many others will come. Happy 2012.
