The new year is about hope and taking the opportunity to evaluate and plan. I've been overwhelming myself with all the things I want to change & do but mainly I'm excited about what 2012 will bring. To some, 2012 just another year but for others it is the dawn of a new physical and spiritual transformation for the world. I'm in need of some transformation for sure so I am definitely claiming that for myself!
As a general rule, I believe that if you want to change something there's no time like today, but I do think a new year is a pretty perfect time to set goals. So in no particular order here are a few of the tangible things that I'd like to tick off this year;
- Consistent exercise (3 times per week)
- Learn a new skill every month (contenders include web page building & sewing)
- Go to Europe once a quarter and France at least twice
- Get a bike
- Improve my photography
- Play my piano
- Blog, blog and more blogging :)
I actually have a kazillion things I'd like to do, some deep and meaningful (like find inner peace) & others less so (do more piping icing), but I don't want to bore you. Instead I will talk a bit about the tasty cupcakes on display here. They are Chocolate and Nutella flavoured, (click here for a link to the recipe) and being that I love all things chocolate, these cuties are no exception. They are tasty and perfect for bringing to New Years Eve parties to wow your host!
Have fun, however you choose to bring in the New Year, and let me know what your resolutions are. Also don't forget to enter the giveaway for a chance to win some cake pops! Click here for more details.
