6. Pick up photography again
7. Blog more frequently...with pictures
8. Go on a picnic at least 4 times
9. Read/finish 25 books
10. Do something creative/artsy once a week
11. Organize my closet and maintain it
12. Throw a party and deck it out
13. Go on a vacation with Neal
14. Refinish at least one piece of furniture

What's on your list?

the letter A

Welcome to the Anthony family blog!

For the most part, I (Jess) will be the narrator of our little family's stories but hopefully we can persuade Neal to hop in every once in a while.

A is for Anthony, a new last name I love (& really enjoy signing)

I have/had another blog (here), but as I wrote down a list of things I wanted to accomplish this year (look for this soon), having a family blog was one of them. So, here we go!

My other (unwritten) goal is to keep shorter blogs.

The end.
