52 in 2012

So I got this wonderful idea from Ashley from After Nine To Five about her goals for 2012 and thought that it would be the absolute perfect way to get everything I want from 2012 and keep track of all the things I want to do in 2012.

This also coincides with my New Years resolution: to make the most of my life. Read about it here!

SO here are my 52 goals to be completed in 2012!!!!!

I will keep you informed of my progress throughout the year. And I think I will possibly give myself a reward if I complete it all.

Happy New Year to all.
XO Samantha

  1. I love the idea of a retro picnic! My list is full of tangible things as well, something I think will make it more real for both of us.

    Your blog redesign looks amazing. Can't say I know what it looked like before, but I really like it right now! I especially love the cursive font for the titles. I must learn how to do that!
