20 Wishes

I've never done a "linkup" before, but when I saw this one come up in my daily blog feed, I figured I'd try it out.  I love making to-do lists!

Being extremely busy at work and planning a wedding from a distance leaves my brain fried by the end of the night.  I feel like I have been constantly on the go lately. Life is short and I need to stop and smell the roses more often. I've never really sat down and thought about the things I would like to accomplish in one year. Things that I really want to do. Things that I look forward to doing.  New things. Fun things. Or, just happy things. Not necessarily things that I have to or need to or should do, but things that I WANT to do. So, today I am linking up with Truly Lovely to share my "1 year, 20 wishes" to do just that, write down 20 things I WANT to do in the year 2013.  

I know 2013 is already going to be a BIG year for us, but here goes my list (in no particular order)...

1.    Marry my best friend.
2.    Have a place that we can call our own.
3.    Spend some time at the beach.
4.    Have more family time.
5.    Visit some place new.
6.    Create our own family traditions.
7.    Disconnect myself from my phone and computer more often.
8.    Complete at least one DIY project I've pinned on Pinterest.
9.    Take more photographs.
10.  Become a better people picture taker.
11.  Become a better photographer in general.
12.  Grow my hair out.
13.  Find a new hobby and stick with it.
14.  Be a supportive fiancee/wife and number one fan.
15.  Bake more often.
16.  Go on more winter hikes.
17.  Curl my hair more often.
18.  Continue blogging.
19.  Go scuba diving.
20.  Have many more "I love Alaska" moments.

So, I challenge you to create your own list and share...  

What are some things that you would like to accomplish in 2013?



  1. Love this list. I haven't made a to-do list for myself in a long time, and I think 2013 is the time to make a comeback. :)

  2. Yay! I am so glad that you linked up! I am with you on #6, #7, #11, and #14

  3. WHOOT! So glad you linked up with us! Especially for your first link up! ;)
    So I am all about becoming a better photographer and taking more photos... sometimes they're all you have to remember fun times, you know!!! Excited to watch you mark all these fun ideas off!
