Bye Bye 2012, Hello 2013!

Dear Friends,

With some champagne and a healthy dose of fireworks 2012 came to an end and 2013 was ushered in. Amongst the best good news of course was the world did not in fact end, which I had really been banking on, and that we would all get to put our New Year’s Resolutions to the test starting today.

For me nothing grandiose… maybe a crack at solving a Rubik’s Cube or World Peace… not really sure yet :). I did spend a bit of time with my family to come up with a short list of some stuff that absolutely does need to get checked of the “2013 To Do List”. We made a mix of places to visit and self improvement items. I think it is healthy to start the year with a goal in mind… how will it shape up?… what do I want to accomplish?… where do I want to visit? It’s only 365 days after-all and as we all know they fly by FAST!

For us here is the list… do you have your’s ready :)?

Places to Visit:

  • Madeira: Off the coast of Portugal in the Atlantic.
  • Land’s End, England: Southernmost point in good old England.
  • John O’Groats & Dunnet Head, Scotland: WAY up there at the tippy top of Scotland.
  • Snowdonia National Park, Wales: Never been to Wales… figure this is a good way to start.
  • Istanbul, Turkey: I’ve got a billion places on my Woot’s! Global Hot Spots just for this one!
  • Venice, Italy: For my mum πŸ™‚
  • Bessies Diner, NH, USA: For Hannah :).

I’ve made a Foursquare list just for this if you want to join in, “2012, Famwee Must See!”… have any places you will ABSOLUTELY visit this year?

Things to Do:

  • Sky diving: I am so jumping out of a plane this year!
  • Some private “make myself look pretty/handsome” stuff… not telling you and will just have to guess next time I see you!
  • Workout at least three days per week, every week… and yes including when it is raining and miserable outside!
  • Take more time to volunteer to charities.
  • Post more to my blog :)!

That’s it… a nice little list to keep my eye on the ball as we barrel into 2013 :)! Here is hoping your New Year’s Eve went off with a bang but that your head doesn’t feel like it this morning :)! Β WOOT!
