Happy New Year, Y’all!
Did you make any resolutions? Reflect on what you are most grateful for in 2011? Or maybe you just ate WAY. TOO. MUCH. BRIE?
Wherever you were on the last night of 2011, you were also in the Potamus house. Well, a stick figure of you, prominently displayed on our white board under “Why 2011 ROCKED” and “People I have ridiculously awesome things planned for in 2012.”
Yummy recipes with photos that make you want to jump through your computer screen and stuff your face? Check.
Interviews with THE birth photographer (whose National Geographic entry ingnited a wildfire of comments) plus experts on:
- What REALLY causes morning sickness
- Why orthodontics can be a bad idea (and what you can instead)?
- And more?
Triple check. Giveaways like this handmade market tote made from recycled coffee sacks?
Oh yeah. I’m telling you, seriously good stuff will be happening here in 2012. But what is this leap I speak of? Well, that’s a little more personal . . .
A Glimpse Into Our Supersecret NYE Strategy Session
About that whiteboard: Daddypotamus and I like to wind down New Years Eve with a hunk of brie, a glass of wine and a frenzied session in which we draw circles furiously, erase, cross out letters and make fun of each other’s handwriting, and (hopefully) come up with a PLAN
Numero uno on the list this year has been in the works for some time:
We. Are. Moving.
For the past three years Daniel and I have struggled to figure out where we fit – we LOVE the community in Texas but feel like some of the basic elements of our life vision (especially access to natural beauty) are missing. It may not be a forever thing, but we are going to venture out and see what unfolds. The small town we’ve picked has the most adorable historic Main Street and no less than EIGHT festivals a year. We’re talking Dickens-style Christmases with over 250 costumed characters milling around the courthouse, jazz and chili cookoffs, irish whiskey and bluegrass.
The timeline is sketchy, but it’s something we’re sure enough of now that we wanted to share with you. As things firm up we’ll share more about where we’re headed, but for now [raises glass of kefir] here’s to the new year! May your life be filled with LEAPS and bounds toward your biggest dreams, bright blessings and unexpected joys!
