Last year, in place of resolutions (but not goals, I love me some goals) I decided to set a word that would guide my year. In case you have not run across this practice before, there are a number of great essays on the reasons for it, including this one from Elise, and this one from Rachel (and a recap). There’s also a workshop done by Ali Edwards, which I sort-of took part in over the last year. (Eventually I realized it wasn’t the route for me, but your mileage may vary.)
My word for 2014 was build. And so, I built. I continued building my role at A Practical Wedding, Ivana and I relaunched Good Dogs & Co. in February and worked hard to get a solid foundation in our first year.
