new year ~ new word

Happy 2015, friends!
I don't really make 
"resolutions" each year - because they inevitably
get broken within a week or two!  But,
I do think about goals I'd like
to accomplish or work toward in the new year
and things in my life that I'd like to take in a new
direction.  I also pick a Word Of The Year -
to inspire my work and give me something
to focus on when I have big decisions to 

So... I decided my Word for 2015 would be FLOURISH!  And
I guess it was meant to be - because a couple days
later Monica Lee of Smart Creative Women announced
she had designed this new planner!!  Well... of course

I LOVE that it's full-size, so you have LOTS of room to 
write a bunch on each days' block - plus you can use it
as your artist's workbook, notepad, idea keeper,
appointment minder...
anything you need to write down!  I LOVE it!
Just have to switch over to my bigger purse - so I can
carry it with me wherever I go!!  I want
to fill every page!  Maybe I'll be able to limit myself
to just this one planner/notebook this year!!  Instead
of a bunch of little ones!  ha.

#onmywalk - Day 2
As for my goals, I started writing them down a couple days
ago, and I'm still working on refining and
organizing them into doable chunks!  But, I did start one
of my goals - which is a daily walk!  It doesn't matter
how far, or how long -- just get my butt out there in
the fresh air and walk!  365 days!  That's my goal.  
And ~ I decided to take a picture every 
day!  Something I see on my walks.  I'll be 
labeling them #onmywalk and
you can show me your pics too, just use the same
hashtag!  Come walk with me!  And follow 
me on Instagram to see my daily photos!

Pointsettia tree,
#onmywalk - Day 1
These are the first 2 photos for the first 2 days of 
January!  I also signed up for the MapMyWalk app - 
so I can keep track of how many miles I
have "moved my rear" this year!  If you don't
have a smartphone - you can keep track on
your computer!!

So let's get MOVIN' peeps!!  Lets be healthy and strong -
so we can take on the world!

I'll be back tomorrow with the completed list of my
goals for 2015!  What goals are YOU trying to
