No Expectations. A year ahead....

Welcome to 2012! 

Holy crap.  Did I just say that?  I mean, weren't we just celebrating the millennium?  I think I'm still trying to work out the kinks from all that Y2K mess.  365 days came and went. And you know what I got out of it? 1400 Twitter followers, a 30th birthday, a love of writing and a crap-load of debt.  Let's just say that 2011 was a roller coaster of a year. One that I'm glad to put away in a drawer, covered in moth balls, for me to forget about until that one time where I decide to move a dresser and it falls out of it's carefully conceived hiding place.  I think that the majority of you know what I'm talking about, and if you're self-employed you know triply so.   Say it with me....

2012 is my year.

Louder!  Ok... too loud.  I'm still nursing my 2011 hangover so let's keep it to a growl ok?

Usually about this time of year we all start talking about our resolutions, those little promises that we start making that usually last until oh.. maybe mid January, February if you're really dedicated.  Let me just say that I don't believe in resolutions.  I don't claim to go to the gym every other day in search of my missing set of abs.  I don't resolve to quit a vice or two (sorry, gimlets are too much fun and I still LOVE to drive fast...).  I think my body would go into shock if I went cold turkey on a long list.  I gave up on perfectionism the day I sold my soul to Louis Vuitton.  (actually I resold it to Hermes, but that is a different matter).

There is only one thing that you can expect from me in this new year.  *putting my left hand on a copy of Vogue, right hand in the air* I resolve to continue to better myself in the new year. To take every opportunity to enrich my life.  And to further my dedication to the design world through my projects, through my blogging, and my travels. That's a good resolution right?

So just what can you expect to come of that resolution?  The TV show that Candy and I have been tirelessly working on.  A bunch of new blogs not only here but also my second blog, "Boy and his Camera". More photography (I'm finding I'm in love with my cameras). Collaborations with some of my favorite Twitter friends. And travels.  Lots of travels. This year you'll find us back in Oregon revisiting old projects, New York for new projects, and of course, Paris (and hopefully Belgium) for something awesome.

Of course, you'll see me adding another 12,000 tweets to my count as I continue to enhance my life by interacting with all of you!

2012 really will be MY year.
