A New Year!

Brian Ness

I hope 2015 is starting off right!

I'm not much for resolutions, but last year, I did make a few goals for myself: 

     Read More Books -  I finished 8 of them, but my most notable was this absolutely bizarre book   called Swamplandia!

     See More Live Theater - We made it to 10. I was so glad we made it to see Once when it toured, and The Heidi Chronicles at the Guthrie was a surprise joy.

     Travel - We had a nice trip to Florida, and I made it out to New York with my dear friend Casey

     Learn New Skills - I took classes in Adobe Illustrator, cake decorating, and embroidery

     Start an Etsy Site

I hadn't known that starting up an etsy site would be so rewarding, and would morph into a bunch of new projects! It has been so great turning Loch Ness MPLS into something much more than a little idea in my head. Thank you for being a part of it!

For 2015, I think my goals are pretty similar, but 2015 is also a big year. We are getting married, we have a great trip planned, so I also want to be sure I am stopping, enjoying, and being grateful for all I have.

Have a fantastic New Year's Day, (hopefully, like me, you are catching the Tournament of Roses parade!) And lets have a really great year!
