buenos aires.

Tango cannot be written without
 Buenos Aires streets or sunsets.”
–Jorge Luis Borges
I’m not one for new years’ resolutions,
but one goal husband and I share is to
travel to somewhere new each year .
This year, one of those cities will be Buenos Aires.
Husband is half Argentinian and
I have yet to step foot in South America before so
this is an especially big trip for the both of us.
With a new year starting and re-newed vacation {yes!}
it is the perfect time to start getting excited for it.
What travel plans do you have this year?

43 things.

Am I the only person who wasn’t aware of the
fantastic website, 43 Things?

I stumbled upon an article on it 
via zen habits (of course)
and immediately was inspired to make
 my own list of 43 things.
I haven’t been brave enough
to publicly challenge myself yet..
but I will.
You’ll hold me to it right?  🙂

A snapshot of some of the things 
on my list:

write a book
take my mom to the pyramids
be present
explore Italy with my husband
finish my English degree
play violin again
read to those less fortunate
be the kind of mother to my children my mom is to us
practice Yoga and Zen
drink more water
buy only what I need (I’m working on that husband!)

What are some of the things on your lists?

You can become blind by seeing each day as a similar one.  Each day is a different one, each day brings a miracle of it’s own.  It’s just a matter of paying attention to this miracle.”
-Paulo Coelho
I’ll be the first to admit that from time to time
I fall into a little slump. 
I get bored easily, especially by routine.
When you think about it, it’s a bit ridiculous right?
There are so many amazing things
 at our disposal to get lost in.
I’m making an early New Year’s resolution –
to write down just one “miracle”
that I’ve seen or felt, each day.
I have a feeling there will be more than just one 🙂
