52 Things To Do In 2010 (and 2011)


So, it's the time of year for new resolutions. Time to reflect, time to brush off the "failures", and time to try again.

Reflecting on my list of 52 Things from 2010. (Yes, 2010, not 2011.) The list is below but you can see the original post here. If I had done all those things in a year, I think I would have felt accomplished, but in reality, this list ended up being a 2-year list and I went backwards on some of it! Now that I have looked it over and celebrated what I did get done, it's time to move on. 

I will share my 52 Things for 2012 on January 1, 2012 with the hopes of total success!
