While I’m not a resolution-making kind of girl, I do like to think about where I’ve been and where I want to go.
Five years ago tonight, my now-husband proposed to me as fireworks went off over the ocean in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. I, naturally, smacked him in the arm and called him a jackass before saying yes.
Last year in my personal blog I wrote, “But I do hope that this will finally be the year we move like we have been planning for what seems like forever. The rest of the year sort of hinges on that major step.”
And we did! It was a big change, but it’s a good thing for my husband’s career, an opportunity for me, and definitely sets the tone for my goals moving into 2010. The year was full of ups (some great work experiences) and downs (my grandma passing away in the spring).
And, of course, I started blogging here!
The top five posts this year (by popularity):
My blogging goals for 2010:
- Use more recipes from my cookbooks
- Take better food photos
- Improve my photography by doing a scheduled photo project or challenge
- Post more comments on blogs I enjoy
- Finally get my blogroll up on the site
- Reorganize my categories and links to make recipes easier to find
As for personal goals, I would like to actually meet some people and make connections in San Diego. If that means getting another job (I’m staying on at my part-time work-from-home gig but that could be sporadic at times), volunteering or interning somewhere, or taking a class, I want to get more involved in our new community. Another area I would like to explore is the state of California. I had never been here before, so now I want to visit San Francisco, some of the national parks, maybe Napa Valley, and other sights that California has to offer. Plus, they need my tax money. I’m enjoying my subscription to Sunset magazine which is all about living in the West.
Do you set resolutions or goals? Are you glad to see 2009 go? What are you looking forward to this year?
