New Years Dreams...



Hey you lovely lot! I hope you're doing well and had a lovely Christmas! Perhaps you're even sitting there with a cup of tea and what's left of the Christmas chocs? or all snuggled up in your onesie catching up on your unread blog posts? For me, the week between Christmas and New Year's is a chance to relax and de-stress from the panic buying and frantic posting of orders from the weeks before, and start looking forward to a brand new, fresh year. 

For me, the New Year always bring's excitement. A sense of anything could happen, that I can make anything happen if I just put my mind to it. It's like a blank page. I've never been able to just live and enjoy the present, and even though i've tried to change this, I have come to realise that constantly wondering what the future hold's is just a part of who I am. Always waiting and hoping for the next exciting thing to come along and then I'm on to something else.

When I look back over this year, 2012 has been full of happy memories for me, and a hell of a lot better than the year that came before! Me and Rikki celebrated 5 years together! moved into our very first house and did plenty of exciting thing's that filled the year with happiness and memories that I will treasure forever!

But I also think it could have been packed with so much more, I could have said yes to more thing's and taken opportunities that I let slide when life was feeling just a bit too manic! But, as I sit here now writing this, i'm determined to make 2013 even bigger and better! 

I thought i'd create a list of thing's i'd like to do and achieve in 2013 (and i'm trying so hard not to use the word resolution in this post... oops). So instead of just making a list in my head, it's there to read and refer to whenever I'm feeling a little jaded by life. And of course you can remind me to get on and do these thing's too, y'know.... if you feel like it? I also thought i'd throw in some photos that will help inspire me (and hopefully you) too!

What's on YOUR to do list for 2013? is there anything that you're dreaming of doing next year?

  1. I really love this post Kate! :D I totally agree with you, just knowing that 2013 is a fresh start and that anything could happen just makes me feel so excited! Your to do list is pretty much most things I have on mine but I think definitely being happy is the most important to me!

    'Always waiting and hoping for the next exciting thing to come along and then I'm on to something else' - that is so similar to me haha.

  44. What a good idea! I've made a mental list of things I'd like to achieve in 2013, but I think writing it down definitely provides more motivation and encouragement. I'm not putting ridiculously high expectations onto myself this year - I just want to be happy and healthy, and if I can maintain that then it's good enough for me!
    Happy New Year! :)

  46. I only found out today that you had a blog! I subscribed to your YouTube a few weeks ago and I love your videos! I loved this blog post because the things you want to achieve are actually realistic! I was quite happy to see that you want to come to Ireland! I live in Ireland so it's quite cool that people want to come here :) If you have the time, I would love if you would check out my blog that I started last week. http://rawrimniamh.blogspot.ie/ :)
