The new twist on New Year’s resolutions is choosing a word of the year instead. I welcomed this new idea since I’ve never been really big on New Year’s resolutions. I quickly realized that quite often I didn’t keep them and would find myself feeling disappointed and letdown because I didn’t. I didn’t like that feeling so I decided years ago to stop making resolutions.
My word for 2012 is resolute (sort of funny since I don’t set resolutions!)
Yep, I’m determined to stay the course and stake my claim in the world this year. One way I’m doing that is stepping out of my comfort zone and believe me, starting this blog is stepping out of my comfort zone! This year, I’m no longer content to allow all the creative ideas in my head to keep floating around unshared.
Here you’ll not only find posts about event planning and design, you’ll also find my adventures as a wife, mother, friend, self-imposed local restaurant critic and faux interior designer. You’ll find that people and love are always the focus of “A Southern Flair”, whether it’s a post about a husband showing love by throwing his beautiful wife a 10th wedding anniversary party; a gorgeous, family-centered wedding or a post about the fun, new dish I made for my family last night!
What are challenging yourself to do this year?
Yes, my journey has started, I’m a blogger. Thank y’all for visiting and check back often for more updates!
