Bird and Belle's Adventures in Marriage

31 in 365


Last year a former colleague of mine started a 38 in 365 Project. Here she sets 38 goals to accomplish in 2010 and then documents each as it is completed. Inspired by her work, and fueled by my embarrassing love for lists, I decided to create my own 31 in 365. Why only 32 and not 38? Why not a more ambitious 50? Honestly, I could not think of more nor do I want to overwhelm myself as 2011 is my great year of learning to live in the present and enjoy life! I chose goals that were realistic, will stretch my creativity, enliven my spirit and bolster both my career and my relationship with Bird. So here they are, in no particular order. I’ll be sure to keep you posted on how the list is progressing over the coming year.

  3. Uncle L has been out every weekend on the pond with the snowblower…Pond Hockey is a once or twice a week occurance around here these days..hasn’t stopped to thaw all winter. Perhaps a quick trip up to learn from the country folk how to skate is a possibility! That would take care of 20 and 23! Whoo Whee!!
