wishing for 2013

13 December 2012

I think it is about time that I take a second and have a really good think about what I want from 2013.
What I want to change, what I want to keep the same, what I have loved and what I have hated.
And it's always good to make a wish or two...
I wish for clarity. I wish for more weekends with my family. I wish for a lifetime with Ben. I wish for simple evenings with a good book & a tasty hot chocolate. I wish for a hot summer. I wish for more cuddles with Goblin. I wish for warm toes and warm fingers. I wish for an income from a job that I really love. I wish for snow this Christmas. I wish for creativity. I wish for longer nails. I wish for deeper friendships.  I wish for a visit to see my blogging friends in the US. I wish for more sleep.   wish for glowing confidence. I wish for a trip around the world. I wish for financial security. I wish for a red velvet cupcake. I wish for a quaint little house in the countryside. I wish for spoken expectations. I wish for silence. I wish for a night under the stars.
I wish for an ever loving heart.
Sometimes I forget that life is about the journey, not the destination, that happiness is a choice and at the end of the day being present is all we can really do.
Here is to being present in 2013.


  1. Lovely post! You have a lovely way with words (I could do with a hot chocolate right now!)

  2. Ooh this is such a wonderful post and you've inspired me to really think about what my wishes for the upcoming year are. <3

  3. Come visit me! If you come in the summer, I'm sure it'll be hot and we can enjoy some cool cocktails. If you come in the winter, I'll have hot chocolate ready. Either way, there will be red velvet cupcakes.

    OR I can come visit you!

    2013 will be a good year...I just know it.

  4. such nice wishes for the new year. being present is most definitely on my list, too. you're right...that's all we can really do!

  5. I love of all of this. I can echo so many of the things you said. You come to the US, then Alissa and I will go to England. Deal?

  6. Aw, this is a great list, and something I should probably do myself for 2013, although I tend to write these lists more in line with my birthday then the new year!

  7. oh please come out to the US!


Go on... stalk me a little..
