My How Times Flies

1 Dec

Today is December 1st…wow!¬† In 24 days we will be celebrating Christmas, and in 30 days New Years Eve.¬† This year has been a whirlwind of events, travel, friends, family, and blessings.¬† I’m sad to see this¬† so quickly, but I’m definitely looking forward to 2012.¬† In a few weeks Dr. B and I will sit down and review our goals that we made during the beginning of the year.¬† We knocked a few out of the park, and others we fell somewhat short.¬† Which I can live with because the real lesson comes from the actual planning, and the process of striving towards the goal.

Screenshot of our 2011 goal spreadsheet

One milestone I’m happy to say that I’ve completed is starting my business, NataMari Designs.¬† I’ve been busy working on my designs, adding content to my new blog, and getting my online store setup.¬† It’s required tons of hard work but I love every minute of it.¬† So please when you get a chance check out my new blog and shop and tell me what you think!
