It still hasn't hit me that it's January. I'm not sure if I'm actually ready to start a new year, I'm still hung up on the old one. 2012 was pretty fun with our travels, so I'm hoping 2013 will be filled with road trips and adventures as well.
So, what's going on in our neck of the woods? Well, we haven't taken our Christmas tree down yet. I'm still slightly attached to its awesomeness. I have to get my ass in gear and do some more baking. I made red velvet cupcakes for the family at Christmas and they're clamoring for more. As well my macaron mat finally made its journey overseas so I'm itching to try my hand at making those treats. Has anyone else out there attempted to make macarons? I'm a wee bit intimated and worried they'll come out looking like crap.
A resolution I have this year, although I don't really believe in the whole resolution thing, is to get back into snail mail. I started penpalling when I was 13 and have been enamored with mail ever since. I have a few penpals that I'm hoping to start back up writing with again, and in all honesty I'm pretty stoked about it. I recently re-activated my account on this penpal site again, but all I keep getting are creepy messages from foreign dudes. (I actually have a Tumblr account with screen shots of the weirdo messages I've gotten, I can link you if you need a laugh. ;)
This year I want to kinda sorta focus on myself a bit more. I feel almost selfish for writing that, but it's true! I get too wrapped up with worrying about how everyone around me is doing, both at work and at home, that I sometimes forget to take time out for myself to just sit back and relax. So basically what I'm saying is I want more time for bubble baths and wandering around Edmonton.
This is what I've been thinking about this past week, what the heck has been on your mind lately?
