Here's to all your hopes and dreams for 2013 being within reach! We share many of the same aspirations. So thankful to know you and to read these words. Peace.


Thanks, Katie! I'm glad you liked it. I was thinking of this post as my own aspirations, but also what I hope for everyone, especially for people in the U.S.

I should have asked readers to share their "more of... / less of..." aspirations in the comments! I'd love to hear yours!

Happy New Year!


More feeling the riches of a very blessed life and less defining the future what more there is to gain. Also, I'd like to second your "dirt paths and less paved roads." Also, more dinner dates with cool parent friends in the greater Providence area and less of not doing that! ;)


More excellence, less perfection. More dancing, less driving. More food from the earth, less things from a box. More laughing at myself, less criticizing others. More paper books, less keypads. More love, less worry.


Thanks for getting me thinking about this Jenn! Here are some of mine: More in the moment and less in my head. More honesty and less fear. More trust and less control. More growth and less constriction.


Love these additions! Keep 'em coming! (This list isn't just for January 1, btw). :)
