Learn // Macramé. This is going to be the year I finally teach myself! I want to get some of my plants off the windowsills and make some macramé hangers for them.
Make // Make a woven wall hanging for my living room. Last year I started to teach myself how to weave and I fell in love with it. This year I'm going to step up my skills and create a wall hanging. Super excited about the possibilities.
Do // Send more mailed letters and postcard to friends/family. I am lucky to have friends and family all over the country that are awesome pen pals. Life can get pretty hectic and I don't keep up with it as much as I'd like.
Explore // Visit the Cheekwood Botanical Garden in Nashville, Tennessee. My husband and I are planning a trip to Nashville this year to see family. We are both huge nature lovers. Whenever we travel, we always make it a point to explore at least one garden, state/national park, or lake. See what your city has to offer!
Learn // To be more patient and revel in the moment. I have a habit of always thinking five (ten, twenty, one hundred) steps ahead. Consequently, I forget to appreciate "the now" and overlook what is already in front of me. This year, I will try harder to slow down and enjoy the act of just being.
Make // A new dining table using repurposed wood and scrap lumber. I'm only mildly handy with a set of tools so we'll see how this one goes. But I've been daydreaming about the dinner parties I can throw and that is inspiration enough to see this project through!
Do // Volunteer my time and talents to something bigger than me. I love what this organization is doing and I can't wait to get involved!
Explore // Chicago! I've called this darling city home for nearly 8 years and there is still so much I have yet to see and experience.
