That time of year again

I cannot believe the year has gone by so fast. Turkey leftovers are in the fridge we went and cut down our tree yesterday and today it is covered in decorations and twinkle lights. Every time I have one of those moments where life feels like it is just flying by, I have to take a moment to take stock. What have I done in the last year? What difference have I made in the world? Am I a better person today than I was a year ago?

My friend Katie made a list of everything she wants do do before she turns 30 and has picked a few to work on in the coming months. While I missed the 'before I turn 30' boat (I had my own pretty successful pre-30 bucket list)I think it is time for a new goal setting strategy and she has motivated me to make my list and then pick a few to start with. I am excited, and hope that it can help me answer positively some of those pesky 'time flying' questions if the next time they arise.

Speaking of time passing by, I just had to get glasses. Genetically I was always going to be prone to less than perfect vision but I have made do until recently. Headaches from working at the computer for long periods of time for school has highlighted my need for some eye-help. And this was confirmed by my eye test. I actually have one eye which is struggling much more than the other but glasses are needed for both. So I now enter the ranks of spec wearer. I like my new glasses.

I'm off to make my list (which I can now see clearly with my new glasses!)


  1. what's on the list? maybe i can help! :-) love the new glasses, need to see them in person though! let's try and do panera this week? love you!

  2. What's on Katie's before 30 list? Maybe I should make one of those...I only have a little over 9 months until I turn 30 too! I guess my number one item is "get married!" :) Also, saw the pic with the glasses that you had posted on facebook the other day and I thought you looked super cute. Miss you--we need to hang out soon! Let me know when you're available!

  3. awesome Chrissie! so happy I could inspire you... when actually you and your blog have been inspiration to me! I can't wait to see your list!
