Call me crazy but January tends to be one of my favourite months. AND I can tell you right now, it has absolutely nothing to do with our cold Canadian winters (damn you frigid temperatures). But it has everything to do with the new year and a fresh start!
First off, I’m super excited to toss my used and abused 2013 planner away and swap it for a brand spanking new 2014, fresh smelling, crisp page planner. New book, new smell—don’t act like you don’t know what I’m talking about :S
Secondly, after 12 months of writing “2013” in the date line, I love the fact that we get to switch up one digit. Just a wee-bit of a “fluxophilia” (the need for constant change), can you tell?
Third, it’s the best time of year to set my goals (in a non-committal kind of way). Whatever works, right?! It’s just my way of setting a long list of goals without the overwhelming pressure to perform everything at a specific time (which… could sometimes result in discouragement if not completed. We don’t want that!). I learned over the years that your goals have to change and evolve with you—just go with the flow. Majority of the time I usually follow through and complete many of my goals. Other times I just strike them out because I’m sick of seeing them on the list. I guess my system works for the most part.
So what will this year bring me? Er..well I’m not quite sure yet. I haven’t had the time to sit down and make my long list of goals for the year. BUT. I can tell you one thing. While I was sick during the holidays—watching everyone have fun—sitting in the corner with my tissue box—I had a lot of time to think. Okay I lie. I only thought about the month of January until I fell fast asleep.
But so far, here’s what I got! I’m starting off the new year with a big bang.
Update Number 1: I have a new PARA blog crew project on the way.
I’m helping my big bro & sister-in-law create a master bedroom retreat. Frustrated with the look of their current room, they came to me for some help. With the cutest 2 1/2 year old princess (she literally dresses like one, no joke) and another one on the way (woo-hoo for Auntie Sabby!), they are looking for a room they can unwind at the end of the night, a cozy place that whispers relaxation.
Buh bye builder beige, hello Silver Touch (PARA Paints, P5247-51)
The princess makes her appearance!
Update Number 2: Pink Little Notebook has a new face!
When I started this blog, I didn’t really put much thought into the look and feel of my website. I wasn’t really sure anyone would even look at it. Since PLN is about to hit a year old next month, I thought it would be the perfect time to design a new look and feel for this blog. I will be relaunching my website design next week (hopefully). I would love to hear all your thoughts on PLN’s new look.
Until next week!
