Sixteen Goals for Twenty-Sixteen

In order for there to be highlights each year, there need to be goals, right? I’ve put a lot of thought into how I want this year to be different than the previous. We should always strive to make it better, more adventure-filled, more magical and that’s exactly what I intend to do. I’m excited to put these things onto my To-Dos for two thousand sixteen.

  1. More Pictures
    goal01
    • Who doesn’t love pictures?! I mean, my mom for one. She hates being in them, but she LOVES taking them, so, still counts in my mind! I want more photo ops and my hubby has come up with a super fun idea I’m so excited to get started working on.
  2. ATTEND MORE CASTELLO DI AMOROSA EVENTSgoal02
    • We have only had the pleasure of attending Castello’s Back to the Futures event and have not gotten the chance to make it to another quite yet. I’m hoping that we can change that this year. Even if we can’t make it to the earlier ones, but maybe the summer ones and New Year’s Eve.
  3. EXPLORE MORE OF NAPAgoal03
    • There is soooo much within and around the Napa Valley that we really haven’t tried to venture into. Air Ballooning is just one of the many things that come to mind…
  4. SAFARI WESTgoal04
    • Wine. Safari. Need I say more?
  5. BUILD UP MY DESIGN PORTFOLIOgoal05
    • My hubby is always commenting on how I should really turn my invites and party details into a lucrative business. I’m almost on board, but I think the best way about that would be to first create a portfolio from my results when collaborating with what others wanted.
  6. FIND MORE LOCAL WINE BARS WITH DELICIOUS APPETIZERSgoal06
    • I was hooked after my first wine bar experience at a place my sister had invited my family to near her work in Palo Alto. Their apps were AMAZING, but I hate driving in Palo Alto. I need to find some just as good closer to home. But man….that baked goat cheese….might be a challenging quest. 😉
  7. DESIGN/PRODUCE WINE-RELATED JEWELRY, ACCESSORIES & CLOTHING LINEgoal07
    • I really really really had so much fun creating my wardrobe for my birthday weekend in Napa. And everything received so many compliments and inquiries into where I got my hands on it all. It made me really consider giving a shot at seeing how much I could push my creative juices to expand beyond what I made and find a way to mass produce or at least easily produce multiple things in a short span of time. I’m pretty confident I would have a market for it too.
  8. HAVE A GHOSTBUSTERS PARTY FOR THE REBOOT RELEASEgoal08
    • Duh, obviously. So this is more of a shout out to my friends to keep an open eye for a headline invite and look into their best ‘buster threads.
  9. IMPROVE GYM ATTENDANCE FOR THAT BLACK CANARY BODView More: http://lisastonephotography.pass.us/chelsea-bridal-shower
    • Ok, prolly not for BC, but yeah. My hubby has been such an inspiration and although I hate gyming, I do have things I could have fixed this year when I look at myself in photos.
  10. DEMONSTRATE BETTER PATIENCE AS A TEACHER/LEADER OF A CLASSROOMgoal10
    • Everyone has their off days, but I feel like I had more than my fair share and I feel that it reflected in my classroom,in the students, and in the other teachers. I want to be a positive influence on my class and it will have to start with changing that quick-fire temper I tend to carry around.
  11. ASSESS OUR FINANCESgoal11
    • We want to be adults. Like…get a house. Have a baby. Get some pets. Own a zoo. To do that, we have to figure some money stuff out. Grown up stuff, but I think getting some helpful advice will really get us on track with our goals. As you might have guessed, we need a little guidance. We like spending money.
  12. BE HAPPYgoal12
    • I get….a bit too enthused and involved in things and it causes me to get a little too attached and a little too affected by what happens. My passion, and in turn, my temper, tend to cause me to put a damper on what could have helped avoid an energy-draining experience. Internally and around my hubby, I get too excited and spiral in anger and frustration. It’s definitely going to be learning how to adapt a “Let it go” perspective.
  13. MORE VIDEO PROJECTSgoal13
    • I love doing editing stuff and I LOVE being in front of a camera and acting silly. I need to do more of this.
  14. PURCHASE A BOTTLE OF MARISOLI-BoRGeS FROM CASTELLO DI AMOROSA.goal14
    • Last year, I felt like we joined the ranks of Castello’s elite with the acquisition of their prized jewel, Sinalunga. We own three bottles of this precious nectar, but there are other crown gems in the castle’s cellars we have discovered and love without relying on the waiting game that comes with the ownership of a Sinalunga.
  15. CONTINUE THE ADVENTURES WITH A SMILE.goal15
    • My photo adventures last year were just too much of a blast and I am, of course, already jumping in with smiles. That’s my theme I’m working in, so let me know if you spot what the focal point of my adventures this year is! ;D
  16. SMILE!goal16
