New Year's Goals

  Isn't it both terribly exciting and perhaps a touch intimidating to face a new year, a year that is completely clean and sure to be oozing with surprises and the potential to be the best year ever?! I definitely think it is and therefore I am viewing 2017 with much eagerness to embark on a potential adventure.

  I love to be organized though for the new year and because of that I wasted no time and immediately composed a list of goals for this year. Since I supposed you would appreciate seeing what my goals are (I know I would like to know what yours are) I made a list (I have an undying love for lists.)

New Year's Goals 2017
  • learn to temper chocolate
  • have a proper high tea party
  • complete my crochet afghan
  • start my own kitchen notebook (like Rachel Khoo)
  • blog much more frequently
  • have excessive berry-ings
  • read 52 books
  • finish writing my book
  • make a proper pâte à choux
  • make a proper pastry cream
  • broaden my french baking knowledge in general
  • break my bad habits (wouldn't you just love to know what they are)
  • have a real picnic
  • become fluent in French

  And I think that finishes my list. I am only slightly daunted, not overly much because I absolutely love challenges and my list makes a splendid one. Just so you know, I will try to let you know if I have completed any of my goals and shall strive to document each adventure regardless of whether or not they were completed throughout this year.

   Before I go, I want to wish all the best to you with completing all your goals.


  1. Lists are some of my favorite things too. :)

    Best of luck in getting to reach all your goals for the year.

  2. That's a lovely list. When I was younger I make New Year resolutions I never kept, but this year I have a few (personal goals) it goes get healthier strengthen my relationship with the Lord.
    3.laugh more. more.
    5.give more.
    6.loosen my grip on worldly things. more books

    Well....there it is. I pray you all a very Happy New Year! God bless! :)
