two thousand seventeen

IMG_8875.JPGIt’s become a bit of a New Year’s tradition for me to make just one resolution.  While of course I’d love to learn to knit and drink more water in 2017, each year I like to take the first few days of January to contemplate which area of my life could use a bit more intention.  This year, it’s things.

Oh, things.  I’ve got a lot of them.  They come and go, some passing through my home in a matter of days, others taking up residence for years, only to be unceremoniously hauled back out eventually.  I recently conducted my annual apartment clean out, and was left wondering how I could still have a furnished apartment with all of the things that got donated or tossed.  Where does all that extra hide?  While I recognize my maximalist tendencies, in the coming months I’d like to keep a better handle on all of it; bringing only things into my home and life that solicit joy and/or function.  And there’s my resolution.

SO!  Since we all know I can’t resist a list, in the tradition of shifting said annual list from resolutions to reflections, a few of my favorite moments from 2016…
