I Wish I May, I Wish I Might….Now it’s a Tradition

Last year, I decided to kick off 2016, not with a traditional New Year’s resolution, but with a “To-Do” list instead.  It included things I’d said I wanted to do in recent years….but hadn’t followed through on….and also some things I wanted to continue to make time for in the New Year.  I wrote about the idea and my original list in a post entitled, I Wish I May, I Wish I Might.

Now its kind of a thing….in my world anyway….so I’ve decided to make another list for 2017.  A few activities are things I didn’t get to last year, but would like to aim to accomplish in 2017, along with a few new endeavors I’m excited to explore in the new year.

  1. Teach my son to ski
  2. Trail Run
