What are your New Year traditions? 

Do you make resolutions? Set goals? Choose a word of the year? 

Each year, for as long as I can remember, I’ve chosen a word to define my goals or mindset for the new year. This year the word is Notice. It’s something I’ve been thinking about for awhile and intend to make it a continuing focal point in 2020. “Notice” has many definitions and should make for a year of interesting discoveries! My hope is to not only notice but to appreciate the things that color my life.


verb:  observe, see, perceive, note, become aware of 

noun: mindfulness, attention, awareness, consciousness, watchfulness, regard, scrutiny, interest, thought, attentiveness, announcement, apprisal, communication

Wishing you a New Year filled with wonderful sights, sounds, and adventures!
