A new year: 13 in 2013

Today is a new day and a new year. I have a feeling that this year will be a good one filled with life changes and so many opportunities! Last night was spent with a big group of family and friends. We played all sorts of games and even lit some fireworks. I have been fighting a cold for the past few days and yesterday it got the best of me and I lost my voice!!! I still had a blast though. 
I love goals and list that get completed. So when I saw a blog post from Ashlyn over at Triple Thread called 12 in 2012, which is her 12 favorite photographs from 2012. But to me it sounded like a bucket list so....I knew I wanted to make a bucket list for 2013 with 13 things to do, try, or accomplish. Writing goals down and reviewing them later really helps me stick to my goals, maybe it is because once you write them down and publish them to a blog there is no turning back. We will see how it goes though. At the end of 2013 I will revisit my list and also share my 13 favorite photos with you! 

1. Complete my sophomore year at UW with a 3.5+ GPA. 
2. Do a 365 photography project. I am going take a photo at a certain time everyday. Between 12:00 and 1:00pm
3. Start my own Etsy business
4. Continue to eat healthy and exercise regularly
5. Visit Clark a couple of more times in Georgia and continue to support him in his military career.
6. Develop my photography skills farther.
7. Learn some of my moms homemade recipes, such as cinnamon rolls and bread.
8. See more of USA or the world.
9. Develop my style and add some staple pieces to my closet.
10. Spend good quality time with my family, especially my little brothers. 
11. Continue to blog regularly and grow my internet community.
12. Appreciate the simple and little things.
13. Be happy. 

We will see how this list looks at the end of the year! I think I am just going to making this list instead of a new years resolution! Have a great first day of 2013.
love, Carlee

  3. Such a lovely post, Carlee. I wish you the best of luck trying to achieve these goals, I'm sure you'll do great! I hope we'll see some result of number 2, that would be nice. Like a weekly feature or something? I'd love to see your photography evolve. :-) Have a wonderful new year, darling, good luck! xoxo


  4. Looks like a fun celebration to welcome 2013! Your 13 in 2013 is full of achievable and beautiful goals! Happy New Year!
