For those of you new to my blog, promise me is an exciting year long adventure created by Jessica from Pen n' Paperflowers. She has challenged her readers to create some promises to themselves. Every month Jessica updates us on her progress. Her honesty is refreshing and motivating.
It's a personal journey,
only I will know if I fail,
but I choose to share my progress here,
in the hopes of getting others to make some goals
and some promises as well...
I am so excited to learn today that sweet Jessica is sending all of us "promise peeps" a little gift. Such a fantastic reminder to have around the house of our journey.
It's check in time. So what have I done this month?
My personal goals for February 2010- February 2011
I promise to...
- learn more settings on my camera
- buy a fedora
- wear a fedora out in public
- say one meaningful compliment to my husband each day -- I have noticed a huge difference when I do thank him for something he has done or take the time to notice how nice he looks
- buy clothing in colors outside my comfort zone
- start wearing heels, I'd like to start with these-- I wore heels to a baby shower Saturday and felt younger and cuter!
- pamper myself once a month
- organize and de-clutter my house- one room at a time here. Tackling the kids clothes right now.

- buy flowers
- find a church and attend regularly
- do letter of the day lessons again with the kids
