For the last couple years I've been making a list on New Year's Day – not resolutions, exactly, but things I'm looking forward to. When I re-read last year's list, I happily realized that it turned out to be a pretty accurate summary of the year. I hope the same thing is true for this list. This year I'm looking forward to...
Buying a house... we hope!
Taking up gardening, if we do buy a house.
Getting more serious about novel writing. (My big dreamy goal is to write one before I turn 30, which is not happening this year but is nonetheless creeping up on me.)
Reading a lot. (If you're on Good Reads, let's be friends!)
And lastly, baking my way through the huge gorgeous Bouchon Bakery cookbook.
Today I'm making pad thai from scratch (using this recipe). Last year I decided to make it my New Year's tradition. I wouldn't say that two years in a row quite counts as a bona fide tradition, but you have to start somewhere, right?
Hope you have a splendid day.
