2016 + Goals

4:00:00 AM

Hello everyone! I am so happy to be back after a short hiatus from blogging! Hope everyone had such a beautiful Christmas and a fabulous New Years! I am so excited for 2016, because 16 is my favorite number and I really want to have a great year. 2015 was filled with amazing memories, but there were a few downsides to the year. I am determined to make 2016 the best year yet. I figure if I lay out my goals, then I would be held accountable for finishing them!

My most important goal of 2016 is to....

Launch my business

I have been working on this idea for a while and I am almost ready to launch it! It is so exciting, terrifying, fun, exhausting, challenging, thrilling, and all other amazing feelings! I literally can hardly contain my excitement for the project! 

Blogging Goals

Go to a blogging convention

Blog more consistently

Take a blogging class

Reach 1,000 followers on Instagram

Celebrate my first anniversary of the blog

Personal Goals

Keep a calendar

Finally get the sweet dog we've been waiting for

Be in a wedding

Take a trip to Europe 

Stop drinking all caffeine

Read 10 books this year

Join Junior League

Be more joyful and less pessimistic

Give myself a break (I'm doing the best I can) 

Make our bed everyday

These are just a few of my goals for the year. There are, of course, more, but these are some of my favorite ones. So, here's to a wonderfully perfect year and CHEERS to 2016!
