my dear acquaintance, a happy new year.

i've been thinking a lot about the new year lately, mostly because i feel like 2009 was a package of days that was pretty crappy for a lot of people (myself included). sorry to be so negative--i'm actually a very, very glass-half-full person, and i would be remiss in complaining like this without saying there were some definite life-highlights over the past 365 days--but honestly, i just cannot wait for january 1st. i have a really good feeling about next year.

so in the spirit of the holidays, here are some things i pledge to do in 2010. these aren't my official resolutions, just things i'd like to accomplish at some point:

+ wear prettier underwear. fact.
+ take more risks in every area of my life.
+ go jet-skiing in the bay (never done) and kayak with dolphins (again).
+ evolve my look. more j.crew, less college student, please.
+ write--really write--more.
+ take a vacation to somewhere i've never been. (california, maybe?)
+ run a 5K, and then a 10K.
+ bake a lot.
+ be more loving. (i had a long talk with a friend about this recently.)
+ volunteer with an organization i'm passionate about (this is actually in the works, and i'm so excited).

how about you--any preliminary new year's resolutions you'd like to share? xoxo!

    i'm constantly inspired by the style of my co-workers... they are the best! and i most definitely see my own style evolving (dare i say improving?) because of it!
