2013 - The Year Of...

Happy New Year!
As you may have discovered by now, we pick a theme for every year. Jon and I were talking about this last night and we're pretty sure this started in 2009; it was the year of chocolate. 2010 was the year of awesome. 2011 was the year of creation. 2012 was the year of pictures.
Every year we have taken the theme a little more seriously and gotten a little more into it.
This year was Jon's turn to decide. Right after Christmas he put a gift bag filled with tissue paper on our bed and said I would have to wait until New Year's day to open it! *grumpy face* I am terribly impatient.
So last night we got home at about 1am and it was time to reveal the theme!
Inside the bag I found these:
2013 - The Year of Exploration!
The way it will work is this: each month we will plan to try something new that we have never done before, but have always wanted to try. To kick it off, Jon got these books for 99 cents each online :) He has always wanted to try making his own paper and getting more into book printing, so these books will help with that.
I told Jon that "the year of exploration" made me think of traveling or a scavenger hunt or cooking! He said it can encompass all of these ideas. Trying something new each month is just the beginning.
Can't wait to see where this year will take us :)
