Happiness

Life has a way of getting in the way of blogging. I’ve been decidedly absent from the computer since moving to Austin. I suppose that could have to do with all the fun changes and goings-on in my life here.

To recap:

I moved to Austin in June 2009

Bought a house in November 2009

Got my first puppy in December 2009

Planted my first garden in February 2010

Got my second puppy in October 2010

Planted my second garden in February 2011

I recently read Gretchen Rubin’s Happiness Project  and was totally inspired.  She focuses on making small changes each month, with each month being devoted to a particular theme.  It struck a chord with me, because I do my own version of this.  3 times a year, I map out the upcoming 4 months and set goals to accomplish each trimester. Some goals continue all year and some are one time wishes. For instance- my continuing goals are: work out 4 times a week, read a book every two weeks, try one new recipe per week, clean the house once a week, treat myself once a week, do something social once a week. Then specific type goals are take a spanish class, get new tires for the car, plan a weekend trip, etc.

So I wanted to check back into word press and make sure my account was still active.  I’m not sure how much I’ll still talk about crafting, cooking, and reading probably a lot, since those are my passions, but I hope to keep track of my own happiness and goals and wishes and interests, so I can look back every so often and remember what matters and what I love.

onward my friends
