So I'm not one for resolutions… always seems to feel like I'm setting myself up for failure somehow.  I just rather prefer to surprise myself with new & unexpected ventures, or something of the sort.  But when I stumbled upon this about midway through last year… well, it was just too much fun!

and I've been waiting to see if she would put out a 2012 version,
and well… she did!!  It's time to do somthing different.  And what better way to come up with some suggestions for your TwentyTwelve Resolutions?
here's a few I love…
 four posts in the last four days… I'm thinking, good start.

and snap a few photos of course…

yes please!!  still so many places I need to go
before we have to leave this beautiful country.

 okay, this takes me back & is actually a funny story… you see, my sister & I used to sneak all the ingredients up to our bedroom during the middle of the night (including the kitchenaid mixer) just so we could eat all the cookie dough!

which could be interesting… you see alot of people spell my name "Nilou."
so in my mad search look what I discovered… this facebook page and this website.
such a novelty for me, 
because you don't just run into Nelous every day, you know… 

 so many of us just go through the motions… with all the technology these days, things get lost in translation, or we don't fully commit our attention to a conversation.  time for a change.  eye contact, people.

 pretty sure my hubby will LOVE this one.

ummm yes please!  loved doing this as a kid…

 so. very. important.

So what are your New Year Resolutions?

  1. i love the "find a friend with the same name on facebook" idea. that would probably be a little tough with my name. i've only heard of about two other people having my same name!

    happy 2012 to ya! (:
