52 Things in 52 Weeks


Inspired by my friend and fellow blogger Whitley over at Simply Whit in a Sequined Life, I have decided to create and share a mini-bucket list of things I would like to accomplish this year. In addition to my resolutions that I shared yesterday of overall goals for the year, I have decided to write out a “to-do” list of all the things I want to make happen this year. The goal is to do one item on the list every week for the entire year. As a listaholic, I couldn’t think of a better way to document my goals and to challenge myself to really focus on the things I want to make happen; plus, having it in black and white makes it more official than just daydreams floating in my head. I now have a reference to hold me accountable. So, here it is:
