December 31, 2013


Oh, those annual pesky resolutions.

But it is refreshing to have an imaginary blank slate on which to
write our goals and dreams.  I usually create a list that includes
eating healthier, exercising more, spending less, blah, blah, blah.

This year my goals are a little less generic -

♥  I'll strive to retain the energy to spread the Beauty of Thrift
through ad-free fleaChic .  

♥  Now that The Big Move is behind us I'll try to relax
and enjoy the Simple Blessings of Life.
  
♥  Continue to encourage and uplift family and friends in a less bossy
way!  (Note to self:  listen more, not everyone is seeking advice.)

Here's the last darling idea of 2013 that I'd like to share with you:

"Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365 page
book.  Write a good one." -- Brad Paisley

  3. I just think you have a great list...I had to laugh with your "not every seeking advice"....my dearest is such a solution person, that I have to preface some of my remarks to "Honey, I don't want a solution, I just want you listen....." But I'm sure you and my hubby have very good advice.

    The jar idea is darling, and reminds me of my 1000 gift journal I did in 2013.
    Relaxing more is always a good goal.
    Love and Hugs

    1. I'm a dedicated problem solver and that's a hard button to turn off but I'm going to try very hard to be more patient and less bossy. I love the jar idea, too. We get so busy in day-to-day life that we "forget to remember" the little funnies and dear things that happen. I hope you and yours have a blessed New Year, Jan

    1. It is cute, isn't it? My daughter was given a similar jar when the twins were born - there was a decoupaged jar for each of the babies and she still continues to add funny little stories on snippets of paper and the twins are almost 3 yrs old. I hope you have many blessings to write down this next year! -- Jan
