"Out of clutter, find simplicity..." Albert Einstein rocks.

"We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day." ~Edith Lovejoy Pierce

Ahhh. It's amazing how time flies these days! (We must be having a laugh riot at Good Taste Events!) Another year is already coming to a close, and a new year is about to begin. This time of year is always one of reflection and resolutions. This year I am making some simple resolutions that I believe will ultimately reap big rewards. I've mentioned being more proficient at writing hand written, thoughtful thank you cards (or any type of cards!). We have some exciting new announcements that you'll hear of soon at Good Taste, and keeping all of those projects moving forward is another goal for 2009.

One of my recurring resolutions is to continue to improve my organizational and efficiency skills. In the wedding and event planning business, if you don't list 'extremely organized - able to juggle hundreds of balls at once, while gracefully hopping through flaming hoops' as one of your talents, you should probably consider another career path. Beyond all the high tech gadgets that help us stay on track, I always find a good old journal and pen or pencil priceless.

I thought I'd give this set of monthly journals from Pottery Barn a try. I love the fun colors, the price is right (now on sale!), and rather than end up with three or four ratty journals at the end of the year, it may be nice to have this organized set of notes to refer back to.

Stay tuned for those announcements that I mentioned, and I'll keep you posted on the cute journals and how they help my juggling skills.

Happy New Years Eve!

Organization and efficiency are always something I'm looking for, and these books from Pottery Barn look great.
