14 for 2014

I am not one to make resolutions. I know myself well enough to know that when I do make resolutions I don't keep them. Not for lack of trying, mind you, simply more so because of how life interrupts even the best of my intentions. That is why I choose a word for the year. This year I've chosen Breathe. In past years I've chosen embrace, grow, and simplify.  These words give me a framework upon which to focus my ideas, endeavors, attitude, etc.  This year, in addition to my word, I've been inspired by Kim to write up a list of 14 intentions for 2014.  I 'm not making any promises to myself to keep all of these as this list is not set in stone nor is it exhaustive.  It's just a list of 14 ideas I wrote down as they popped into my mind; things that I'd like to see happen for myself this year.

1.  Blog more often
2.  Update the look of my blog
3.  Finish 3 projects in the house: family room wall, re-upholster my fav chair, and the dining room to work space conversion
4.  Get outside more often: snowshoeing, hiking, biking, etc.
5.  Journal more
6.  Read more 
7.  Take control of my health 
8.  Be intentional about my photography
9.  Work on a 365 project and FINISH it
10. Collaborate on a photography project (akin to 3191 miles)
11. De-clutter my closet
12. Make time for me...guilt-free
13. Be intentional in my relationships with others
14. Be grateful everyday and actually write it down in a gratitude list (I do have one but I can go for days and days, months even,  without actually writing anything down)


  1. Great list Laura. I love #12 and think we all need to practice that one! Can't wait to connect with you more this year. xo

    1. Thanks, Kristina! And I think I could have filled my WHOLE list with #12...it really shouldn't be so hard to do. Here's to a fab 2014!
