I’m a huge fan of New Years — and for more reasons than tossing confetti and clinking flutes with loved ones (not to say those things aren’t fully amazing). I love the act of reflecting on the year (complete with top 40 countdowns and google most-searched lists) and switching gears to focus on what we want to get out of the year ahead.
I’m so lucky to say that 2014 was the best year of my life, full of exciting changes and major life moments. I got engaged to my favorite guy in the world, started a new job at T.J.Maxx and bought a wonderful little home that we’re slowly setting up. So for me, 2015 has a lot to live up to — but I have full faith it’ll be the best year yet, and I’m taking my NYE fortune cookie as a good omen.
My year ahead will be filled with wedding-planning festivities (we’ve officially entered 6-months territory), continuing to make our condo truly feel like ours, fun and challenging work at TJs and hopefully lots of time with friends and family.
I’ve read that writing down your intentions helps solidify them to yourself and to the universe, if you believe in that kind of thing (which I do). I have a bazillion resolutions but the one I want to call out is to get back into my personal blog. I’m hoping to post a few times a week about the topics that are inspiring me at the moment: wedding DIY, recipe reviews (cooking more is also on the resolution list), decorating ideas, style stories, Boston happenings… Fingers crossed I keep it up!
Thanks for checking in and hope 2015 is off to a good start!
