Remember when I told you that during my 3-hour car ride on New Year's Eve, I spent a lot of time thinking about my goals for the year? 2011 was a good year in terms of getting my confidence back, figuring out what I wanted to do with my life and making a game plan for change.

2012 is the year I act on it. At the end of 2011, nothing in my life was working for me. So 2012 is the year I fix what I can and go for all the plans and dreams and thoughts I sowed in 2011.

First up: I was promoted. Already told you about that. A combination of hard work, shifting staff and several conversations with my boss and I was positioned into a job that I really, really love. I feel like a flower that has bloomed. And it shows.

Next up: paid off my car. Mailed the check on Friday. Feels pretty good. Now if I could get people to stop breaking into it....

Enter step 3! I am moving. No, not to Alabama, though someone's big blue eyes are making it hard to stay away.

I found a place 10 miles closer that direction though, south of town and in a great, safe area and my favorite part: it is SO CLOSE to many of my friends. I wouldn't go so far as to say that I miss having my bed in a room with three other women, but I do miss the community of the dorms, especially as a single woman. I can't wait to be walking distance to at least three of my girlfriends. I also will be very near all kinds of shopping, restaurants, and other conveniences not found downtown (or at least on my current commute).

I am SO excited. This new place also has a SECOND BEDROOM, so ANYONE who wants to come and visit, or is passing through town, or needs a place to stay for any reason at all, is more than welcome to! It also has a pool... so if you need me, that's where I will be.

Generous friends are giving me some great handmedowns but I also have my eye on some things to save for. Who wants to read some humble little decor posts?

YAY for change! I don't think I have ever celebrated change before, I usually hate it. But in this case, I COULDN'T BE HAPPIER!
