Looking Forward

Our list of planned adventures for
this year feels endless, in the
most beautiful way. We’re going to
and that is just for starters.

We’ll spend time at the zoo.
We’ll visit dusty, old dinosaur bones.
And venture out to the mountains.

Maybe even a dog sled tour.
(You think the 3-year-old will last?)

Favourite little mountain towns await us,
And I know how it’ll go.
We’ll plan all our weekend adventures,
And 2012 will go by too fast.

But that’s what life is about.


I haven’t participated in Six Word Friday for a while and when I saw this week’s theme (“looking forward”) I thought it was a great chance to share my excitement over the things we have planned for the year. 

P.S. Thanks for your ideas and inspiration on yesterday’s one word post. I think my word has found me. I’m going to let it sit for a bit, but I think I’ve got it, and it’s very relevant to the above and all the things we want to do and explore in our new ‘hood.



  1. I can’t wait for you to do all these things.

    And hear what your one word is.

  2. Didn’t do much of anything last year because I was so sick and out of work, but this year we already have a sunny destination vacation planned. So can’t wait.

  3. I can’t wait to hear the one word, either! I hope you enjoy every moment.

  4. Could it possibly be “fun.” Because all those things sound like fun :)

  5. lovely ideas for the new year… I wish I were the planning type!

  6. It sounds like you are going to have a blast!

  7. That all looks so exciting!
    Save a spot for me on that dog sled.

  8. Sounds like an amazing year!

  9. I love the sense of adventure coming, and of course can’t wait to learn what your word is!

  10. Great plans. I wish we could come along!

  11. It’s going to be a great year! You have so much to look forward to. :)

  12. That sounds delightful. There’s tons of exploration my husband and I want to do with the boys this year as well. Seeing Chicago through a tourist’s eyes!


  1. […] wrote a post just about exactly one year ago about all the things I wanted to do in 2012. It was part of wanting to live in a vibrant way and I was totally excited. And then about a week […]
