3) Job - I'm looking forward to really settling into my new job that I started mid-November. I started at an exciting time for the organization, and I can't wait to keep shaping this "ball of clay." It's a huge relief to feel that way, because I spent most of this year feeling completely overwhelmed by my past job. I often described it like filling your cupped hands with water and watching it all pour through the tiny cracks in your fingers, no matter how hard you try to keep them together.
4) Cooking - I've been cooking up a storm, and can't wait to keep trying new recipes in the kitchen. I asked for (and received) a bunch of cookbooks for Christmas, and I'm having so much fun leafing through them to find recipes.
5) Continuing to explore Charlotte - we're not newbies anymore, but we've kind of settled into a rut and go to all the same places over and over again. So, I'm making a goal of visiting at least one new place (restaurant, museum, attraction) per month. We got a few gift cards to restaurants we've never been to in Charlotte, so that will force us to branch out a little bit!
