Do you make new year's resolutions?  I feel like it might be a dying art to make goals at the beginning of the year.  Hardly anyone I asked was making resolutions this year.  I make resolutions every year, some I keep, some I don't.  One year I remember making about seven resolutions!  For 2011 I wanted to be better at keeping in touch with people on the phone rather than email and texting.  I think I did a pretty good job for the first five months until my son was born in May.  Then emailing became much easier!  

This year, I have a few:  I want to learn to french braid, especially across the hairline to make it look like a headband.  I hope to wear SPF daily.  And not to sound cliche, but I want to eat healthier.

I think referring to them as goals instead of resolutions makes it a bit different.  Also, the key to success is attainable goals.  I live for a to-do list.  It's so satisfying to cross items off and be productive.  Goals are the same to me.  

I will let you know how this set of goals goes.  Hopefully soon I will be able to post a picture of me with some sort of french braid!  Here is my lame attempt a couple years ago on my birthday in New York.  You can barely see the braid.  (We were having dinner at the famous Serendipity; check out that Frozen Hot Chocolate!)
