We can all agree that twenty twelve is here. Can't we? Let's graciously open the door and let it in!
If not now, then when? This question has prompted me to ask myself the very same question. I'm not much of a list maker however I know that when you write something down you're more apt to stick to it. When will I write down that list that I've been meaning to put into an actual list? The time has come and I would love to share with you my little list. These are a few things that came to mind that I would love to make an effort in changing this year.

Rachel's 2012 life list.
  1. Add more creativity to my life. Start encouraging my love for doodling, design and craftiness.
  2. Take better care of myself. Be a more strict vegan.
  3. Give more. Donate, volunteer and just give it all away.
  4. Do what I say, say what I do.
  5. Learn that it is okay and healthy to unplug from technology for a bit and do it.
  6. Spend more time with my son. More time at the park, walks, play dates and art projects.
  7. Grow some of my own vegetables and fruit.
  8. Exercise.
  9. Choose something that I'd like to spend more time working on and just do it.
  10. Take my business idea to the next level and produce our product.
  11. Have more fun. Let loose, unwind, relax and smile.
  12. Don't take life so seriously.
  13. Laugh alot. The belly ache laughing a good 3 times per month.
  14. Take date nights at least 2x per month with my adorable husband.
  15. Get better at photography. Take a class and a minimum of 2,000 pictures this year.
  16. Show the love. This ties in with No. 3. When making choices, really think about them. Choose love.

    What are your goals/plans/changes that you'd like for 2012? I'd love to hear them!

    2. Such a beautiful list... isn't funny how the things that bring us the most joy are sometimes the things we most easily over look? I am also of the same mind set and plan on spending A LOT more quality time with my hubby! Good luck in the new year!

    3. @Sophie- Thanks for your nice comment! Wishing you a wonderful 2012 as well.

    4. @Jessa Belle-Isn't that the truth! We take for granted sometimes that our significant other is just another piece to the puzzle. It's important to never lose sight of why you chose them. :) Best wishes for a splendid new year as well!
