I’m always excited about the start of a new year. For me, it’s like a fresh notebook, a hot bath, and a triple scoop of ice cream all in one: sweet, inviting, and so ripe with delicious possibility. 2011 was a banner year for me and my Dream of becoming a yarn shop owner. How delicious it is to see one’s dream grow from a seed to seedling! It has been a lot of work and meant an immeasurable amount of change for our little family, but bit by bit we are adjusting and creating a new normal.
For 2012 I hope to find a little more breathing room and balance as we continue to find our way. I also have a slew of new dreams, both large and small that need tending this year: Find our dream family home. Get regular haircuts. Tend chickens. Buy better bras. Go on a vacation. Knit through my sock yarn stash. Make more food from scratch. Read all the books on my nightstand. Create a mobile yarn shop.
I’m a dreamer, always have been, and one dream coming to fruition only stokes the other little dreams into bigger flames!
What are your dreams for 2012?
