New Years Rulin’s & Resolutions

This time of year is big on introspection. I like to spend time thinking about the past year focusing on the highlights and, without being too hard on myself, thinking about where there was room for improvement and allowing that to inform my New Years Resolutions.

While coming up with a list of my own, I stumbled across this charming New Years Rulin’s list from 1941 written by American folk legend Woody Guthrie. I loved reading through his full list on a great blog called Lists of Note, which you can check out here.

The results of my own brainstorming session lack illustration, but I think they will carry me into 2013 with motivation, great to keep in mind both professionally and personally. Would you like to hear them?

My 2013 Resolutions are:

Be Healthy

Be Optimistic

Stay Focused

Remember What’s Important!

Happy New Year to all of you, our wonderful supporters. We love and appreciate each and every one of you. Stay tuned for big things in 2013!

Hoosiers helping Hoosiers

As many of you know, Linnea’s Lights is proudly based in Indiana and with last week’s terrible tornado, we’re grateful to have made it through the storm. It’s been humbling to see Hoosiers helping Hoosiers here in our great state.

We thought we’d take a moment to encourage people to donate via the American Red Cross tornado relief fund if you can. The people in the southern part of the state need all the help, support and prayers they can get:

Thank you for all of your support! Sending love and keeping those affected in our thoughts.
