On New Year’s eve, we made a list. Last year, Andy and I made a list, too. Saturday night, we opened the sheet of paper marked with 2011′s goals and reflected on what we had and had not accomplished. Then we made a plan of our hopes for 2012. It included building a savings and paying off debt, two goals on our list last year. But it also included moving in together and saying “I do.”
Making goals together, not necessarily personal resolutions, is something I’m looking forward to doing every year with him. Yes, it’s disappointing when we don’t accomplish something. But it’s also rewarding when we can cross something off the list. Writing the list together means we’re holding each other to what we write.
What’s a tradition that you have with your significant other? Did you make goals together for 2012?
