A few weeks ago I turned 33. It’s weird to write that. 33 seems like such an old number. I still feel like I’m in my early 20s! Every year my age feels more distant to me. Like…am I really 33? I just can’t believe it.

In honor of my new age…I’ve come up with 3 goals. (because there’s no way I could accomplish 33 goals!)

1. Eat 101 salads. I love Mark Bittman and I’m so inspired by this list of salads. Each salad takes 20 minutes or less and offers enough variety that I won’t get bored. It will help me to eat healthier, bring my lunch to work more, and sort of cook since I’ve pretty much stopped cooking since having Emma. I also want to try buying the ingredients for my salad at the local farmer’s market each week.

tomato, watermelon, basil, goat cheese, and vinaigrette

2. Start a Project Life scrapbook. Watching the video is probably easier than having me explain it. I’ve been reading a lot of bloggers who do Project Life and love it and it really got me excited. Especially this blogger. Her PL spreads are so amazing! I really wanted a way to capture photos for Emma. I remember flipping through my family’s photo albums and how fun it is to reminisce. So much better than looking at photos on the computer! And this method of scrapbooking seems very straightforward and not as time consuming as a typical scrapbook. I’ve already ordered my binder and pocket protectors. I’m actually going to do one focused on Emma’s first year and if I like it a lot I may start another one in January focused more on our whole family. I would love to do an album for every year but that may be too ambitious. Anyways, I can’t wait to start!

3. Open an etsy store. I’ve had a lot of ideas of what to sell but I’ve never actually gone and tried to sell anything. Even if it’s just one product and nobody buys it, I would like to open up an Etsy shop before I turn 34.

Aside from these physical goals…I also want to remind myself to try to better myself always. I need to be more patient. To enjoy each moment in the present. To love and cherish boyrobot and babybot to the fullest. To appreciate my parents who are aging way too fast. To become braver and make new friends. And to be more genuine and thoughtful towards all relationships in my life.

And because these pics made my day…random photos of Emma!

That’d be cool if you did an etsy store. I loved the napkins you made for Lynn. You have a lot of crafty ideas!!
