it's 2015 and it has been for a few days now... but i've been feeling a little bit lost.
some years, i have HEAPS of ideas and plans for the new year, but this year, my plans and ideas have been a bit slower coming...

but i'm getting there!
i decided to play along with sophie and make a little list. not quite 30 things like her, but 21. because why not!

get my passport sorted.
green time. every day.
reduce my yarn stash.
sort out our bed linen.
try new recipes.
get preserving.
wear more dresses.
read one book a month.
get back to duolingo-ing. french!
keep growing my hair.
make some clothes.
eat alfresco more. it's fun!
keep up with my blogging.
learn to spin.
explore more.
watch a sunrise.
try and put something new in my shop every month.
keep saving (and maybe even buy a house!)
be more organised with gifts. handmade/homegrown all the way!
get baking. bread, biscuits, cakes, yum!
make time for friends and family.

and while i'm at it, this resolution thing, i've been thinking about a word for the year. yep, a nice big list of things to do AND one word to go with too...
bron has a list of words on her blog too...

anywho, the word that keeps popping up in my brain when i think of this year is CHANGE. and how it might happen this year, and how i want to be ok with it.
sometimes i get a little caught up when things CHANGE because i get nervous about not knowing how things are going to turn out but CHANGE is ok. CHANGE is good. and fun and natural.

what are your plans for the year ahead? have you made a list? or do you have a word? or both??

Change is really hard and being comfortable with it takes time, but if you want it, you'll get there, Nicole. You can start with small changes and go from there... Good luck achieving your lovely list too. x

My big change will come in June ... the last day of school and then freedom. Can't wait! And then I will have more time for all the things I want and need to do. My creativity has taken a nosedive since going back to school this past Sunday, so finding BALANCE and HARMONY isn't always easy. I want to maintain my blogging friendships so am happy to be in this space again. Though I also love Instagram. I also want to get more organized with my gift giving and stop procrastinating or thinking things have to be just right. Wishing you a great week, and year. :) Tammy

Change can be great. I hope the changes you seek make your 2015 awesome.

That all sounds like a lovely list of things to achieve for the year and change is definitely a good thing!

I've got lots of change this year too, new job, new home, new town to live in. It can be a little bit daunting but I really like having a fresh start.
