Goodbye 2010, Welcome 2011…

>I have returned to my home here in Winnipeg… after having a great time over the past 16 days in Ontario, in a few different towns and cities…!  I’m the type of person that packs a HUGE amount into my short visits… this trip was no different!  I did manage to pack in a lot of visiting, laughing, eating…mixing it up with family and friends! Although I didn’t get a chance to see everyone I wanted to see– I’m so happy I did get to see the people I did see!! 

I’ve been thinking all of today about what a difference a year makes. December 31, 2009 at 11:35pm I arrived in Winnipeg–not knowing anyone, starting a new job in 4 days(something I had never done before!), having to find an apartment, arrange to get my furniture from Toronto out of storage, buy a car for the first time..probably way more things to do than I can list there… I did manage to settle into life pretty fast!  Slowly finding my feet in this strange city I had decided to make my home…driving around today I realized that I totally own this city now!! (I know where to go and how to get there… wow what a difference a year makes!)

New Year’s Eve 2010 was pretty awesome!! My camera and iPhone stayed at home…(so no photos) but all I can say is that it was an awesome time…and involved 3 different places… and Emily and I have decided that our habit of spending every-other- NYE  together needs to happen…I’m looking forward to 2012! 

I’m not one for making “New Years Resolutions” or anything… but I’m so excited for 2011… This year is going to bring a lot of fun and adventure… I have a lot of dreams, and hopes and wishes… and I need to start making them happen. 

So what do I want from 2011? 

Here’s a list of a few things I’ll be working on this year…

  • to be the best sister, daughter, aunt and cousin that I can be… (even from a distance..) family is the most important thing you have…
  • to take time to create and be crafty… (finish maybe one of the million projects I have on the go!)…
  • to laugh until my belly aches, and I forget what I was laughing about….
  • to listen to friends, as they share their excitement or heart break…
  • to pay attention to the details…
  • to skype my nephews more regularly…
  • to have at least one road trip to somewhere this year!
  • to continue to learn, and be the best professional I can be at my job…
  • to reach my goal by my next birthday… (break the two by 32… then I’ll get my tattoo!)…
  • to be able to run 5km..without stopping…
  • to figure out what I should do, or shouldn’t do with my photography…
  • to continue to make roots, and making wherever I am and have that become my home! 
  • to continue to blog…and make it more regular!

I’m excited for what’s going on in my friends lives… there are a lot of exciting things happening their lives in 2011… new babies, engagements, new houses, new jobs etc… I can’t wait to be there, and celebrate in all of these great times!!!!  One of my best friends had a baby on 1-1-11! I can’t wait to meet him in person…

So that’s my story and I’m sticking to it… can’t wait for all the new exciting adventures that 2011 will bring…and I can’t wait to share them all with you!
