Bye-bye 2011.

I am beyond ecstatic that this year will be over in less than 48 hours!!!

I would recap the year, but I find it unnecessary since I am completely immersed in moving forward and 2011 kind of sucked, with the exception of my best friend asking me to marry him, that was awesome.

Remember when I decided I wasn't going to have goals anymore? Moving into 2012 I am sticking with it; never in my life have I been more productive. I highly recommend ditching your goals, and living your life (productively).

Plus, now I have a cool iPad so if I ever am feeling unproductive, I am sure there is an app to cure such madness.

I don't believe in resolutions; they have a bad wrap of never happening, and are easily forgotten so this year I have some aspirations:

I aspire to be more playful, inventive and in touch with my inner-child.
I aspire to start each day with intention, and end each day feeling accomplished.
I aspire to have healthy relationships with friends and family.
I aspire to have a healthy body, mind and soul.
I aspire to be a better, more giving partner and friend to R.
I aspire to live life with less barriers and an open heart.
I aspire to be the most compassionate & understanding version of myself 
and last but not least...

This year I aspire to find three things each day that I can do for someone else, even if it's just a small act of kindness.

On the blogfront this year you can expect a new look for TMBTP, more of my personal art work, the beginning stages of my etsy shop, R and I getting ready for Burning Man, a more adventurous version of the R&R you all know and love (or love to hate, Idk) and as always lots of pictures of my three cats doing very cute things.. :)

I hope everyone has a safe and celebratory weekend. Let this year be your best because according to the Mayan Calender this year is your last! (bahahahahahaha, don't actually believe that!) Also, don't forget to eat your black-eyed peas and collard greens on New Years Day!

xo, Namaste and see ya next year freaks and geeks!



  1. all great aspirations. I agree, call them aspirations, not goals, as that can be so daunting.

  2. I love this! Love! I don't believe in resolutions either. I believe in intent and simply getting it done :)

  3. Ah, Burning Man. A good friend of mine went there about 2 years ago, she said it was a very unique experience. I applauded her sense of adventure, I don't think I could ever be quite that bold.

    I agree with you about the New Year's Resolutions. They almost never last...I feel like the very notion of a NYR is a self-defeating prophecy. I have a few abstract goals in mind for the year, and I will pursue them. I hope you find everything you need to satisfy your aspirations! Happy '12!
