The List: 8 Things I’m looking forward to in 2012

harlem loves 2012

Only 3 days in and 2012 has been pretty awesome already, I can’t even put into words. And yet there’s still so many things that I’m looking forward to…

It’s actually quite a long list and involves dreams and ambitions not just for myself but for the friends and family who surround me. That said, I’ve pulled out 8 of the fun and fabulous things I’m anticipating this year.

1: The launch of Love Harlem. I’ve been working on this with my family for a while and it’s very nearly time for its grand unveiling. Cannot wait.

2: Becoming an honorary aunt as a childhood friend and her husband have their first baby! This is the second of my close friends to have a baby and I’m so excited to meet the little one.

3: The spring wedding of another childhood friend. It’s going to be as beautiful as she is.

4: Attending more blogger meet-ups. I tend to miss these things as they’re often on Friday nights or Saturdays when I’m at church but who knows, maybe this year I’ll organise one of my own and finally get to meet some of the fab faces behind these blogs.

5: Going to Paris. I’ve still yet to go *hangs head in shame* This year it has got to happen.

6: The return of The Good Wife, Suits and Parenthood. My top 3 programmes, closely followed by Mad Men and So You Think You Can Dance.

7: Matt Damon in The Bourne Legacy. Are there any other films out next year? UPDATE: To answer my own question. Yes there is! Red Tails. FURTHER UPDATE: Matt Damon actually isn’t in this year’s Bourne Legacy!?! *flops* FURTHER FURTHER UPDATE: Forget both, Avengers has been the film of the year so far.

8: Alexandra Burke’s new album. I can’t help it. I’m still hoping that we’re going to see some glimmer of the talent she showed on X Factor and we can just sweep her first album under the rug.

In all seriousness though, this year, with God’s blessing I plan to live a more fulfilled life. There are 366 days this year (it’s a leap year) and I have started as I mean to go on, spending every day praying, growing, loving, dreaming, achieving, blessing and being blessed.

It’s going to be awesome!

What about you though? What are you looking forward to in 2012?

Amongst many other things, I'm a 30-something contemplative Londoner making the daily commute between contentment and ambition.When not blogging, I'm using my talents for good as communications director at Gingerland and co-founder of Love Harlem.

    You look you have a fun year ahead of you. Cooool! I thought I was the only person in love with The Good Wife and Parenthood, absolutely NONE of my friends had ever heard of them before. Happy Watching 1

      Hey Danah, honestly both those shows are so good. The script writing, characters, story lines. Just great TV!

    Heyy :) Thank you so much for your comment on my blog :)

    Looks like you have a lovely year ahead of you! I got really into the Good Wife myself when I was bored one holiday although unfortunately haven’t really had time to watch it lately. Maybe with the stark of a new series I may just settle in to watch!

    Paris will be incredible! If you’re feeling adventurous (and don’t mind a hefty price tag) I would seriously encourage you to try Steak tartar on the Champs Elysée at George VI restaurant I think – it’s got read banners and you can sit outside – honestly the best food I’ve eaten. <3
