I'm not one to quote country music stars…but this quote hit me like a ton of bricks on New Year's day "Tomorrow is the first blank page of a 365 page book. Write a good one"…damn Brad Paisley, you led me to ponder what makes a good read? If something interesting isn't happening on every page of a book then usually you just get bored and stop reading. Why isn't life more like that? Why have I not been treating every day as if it were a blank page that I needed to fill with at least ONE interesting or new thing? Well you bet your ass this year is going to be different. I'm trying one new thing EVERY single day….be it a new recipe, a new shape or silhouette in my clothes or just going to a new place. Its going to be documented right here to make sure I'm following through…….its going to be one good year :)

Day 1: tried new Blackeyed Pea chili recipe

Day 2: tested out the wrapping ankle straps around pants thing…..kinda lurve it & tried Goat Cheese Caprese Salad (instead of with the usual mozzarella…..nom to the nom


  1. That is a great idea Brooke! wish I could try it with you but it seems to draining for me to have to think of something new every pathetic right? But I am inspired..thank you. I am also reading this snowed in and stir crazy so my mind frame could have a lot to do with it. Anyway, very cool and different rocker look for look sooooooooooo skinny!
