As I sit here on New Years Eve, our Christmas tree now down, Calla napping and the house silent, I’m pondering my list of resolutions for 2013.
This list is compiled of the basic resolutions like; Drink more Water, Don’t eat so much sugar (unless it’s dark chocolate, of course), Exercise more, Try not to spend all your money on food props, etc, etc.
It also has a few projects that have been on my to do list for far too long, and some friends can attest to that, like completing photo albums long overdue.
I’d like to start, and finish, either a Project 365 or Project 52 (because I simply do not have enough photos, and would love to watch the progression over the year).
And I’d also like to compile a food list of the meals I would like to try, cooking methods to learn or ingredients to use. Learning some basics like how to make a pie crust or even homemade vegetable stock would be very handy and practical.
Looking back at 2012, it has been another amazing year. Calla is growing fast and becoming more vibrant and beautiful and fun and incredibly amazing everyday. Before I had her I swore I wouldn’t be a parent who only ever talked about her child, but now I do, and I can’t stop gushing about her and completely understand why those parents talk about their children. They’re truly incredible little beings.
This food blog has been a great venture for myself, a great hobby to have both for photography and for cooking and baking. I am truly addicted and know Scotty thinks I have a serious problem when I start baking at 8pm or am constantly looking for new recipes and at other food blogs. Thank you so very much for visiting, reading, following and commenting. I love and appreciate the support.
As always this year as passed by in a blur. We went on a lot of walks, did some boating, saw my sisters (but nowhere near as much as I would have liked to), and continue to do the never ending laundry duty. We read “Go dog Go” over a million times and Calla still chases Cliff around the house but she’s much faster now.
I truly wish this next year would slow down just a little. So another resolution I’d like to make would be to take more time for the important things. Stay in contact with friends and family near and especially far, take more photos, but also put the camera down to enjoy the moment as well.
Have a wonderful evening, and I’ll see you in the New Year.
