I learned a new term this year--evidently "NYE" is short for New Year's Eve? I thought people were talking about some fancy club or event in New York when I kept seeing it on Twitter.
Anyway, I hope you all have exciting plans for New Year's Eve. I'm happy to be hanging out with family including a sister-in-law who's home from school for the holiday, and we're going to a party and then probably just catching up after! Nothing too crazy. I get tired early. ;)
But the beginning of a new year does make you think. This is a good time for reflecting back, and making changes and goals for the future. And, thinking back on my year, I remember how grateful I am to have all of you out there, readers. I wanted to take this time to say thank you all so much for reading my blog. (!!!!) It truly means so much to me that you want to read the stories and posts I publish, and I am so happy to hear your comments and read your emails every day.
A lot happened in my life in 2011, but I'll spare you the details. The high points: got a "real" job, moved, got married, honeymooned, and started house-hunting!
As for the stuff you care about? Some blog changes and improvements, for sure. I started tweeting more, had the blog slightly redesigned, and started my How to Wear DIY series that I'm so excited about. I love sharing how I incorporate homemade pieces into my everyday wardrobe and style. And I really I hope you all enjoy reading about how my DIY attitude influences my outfits.
My goals for 2012 include keeping up the blog and getting better at it! A year from now, I want to have an even better blog, and I hope you stick around and spread the word so that I'm able to get there!
What are your New Year's resolutions or goals for 2012? Maybe you want to sew for yourself more often, or make more home-cooked meals, or clean out your closet!, or whatever it is... I'd love to hear it!
