If you didn't already know, I am in love with Elsie and her cute blog! (She also just got engaged, CONGRATS!!!) She posted a challenge for her readers HERE - Join me in making 4 goals that you want to achieve before the end of the year. Goals that will enrich your life.
I am going to list mine here, and as I acheive each of them, I will blog about it. Ready, go!
1. Sew 1 thing before the end of the year. I just inherited my grandmother's vintage sewing machine and I have GOT to put it to good use :)
2. Journal more. My therapy has always been a candle, songs w/ awesome lyrics, a journal, and a pen.... a GOOD pen. I picked up a new journal on Saturday, sat in my red chair, and journaled for 20 minutes...it is SO good for my soul... writing is truly an outlet for me. I need to commit to doing this weekly. (if not more!)
3. Finish our wedding album. I have been thinking, rethinking, re-doing, our wedding album a zillion times... I need to just be decisive and click PURCHASE :)
4. Cook 1 new thing per month! I want to whip out the trusty cookbooks I have been given and try 1 new recipe a month... maybe even start some sort of supper club??? I dont know... I tried a recipe last night from Jen Smith and I am now more confident in my cooking skills...all you have to do is put yourself out there and try new things! I even substituted ingredients... I mean who has paprika!??! not this girl... so we googled substitutes and red pepper came up! Done and Done! I have that... then we didn't have crispy onion rings (the kind you buy in a can)...so I ground up Ritz crackers... why not!??! As for the cream of celery soup, the cream of mushroom soup in my pantry worked JUST fine. So I took some risks, and it ended up being yummy!
What are your 4 goals going to be?
