My Hopes for 2020

My Hopes for 2020

It is hard to imagine that 2020 will be able to beat 2019, but I am excited to see what this year will bring. As we head into the new decade I hope I can continue to grow and learn about myself and the world around me. At the end of the day, I have no idea what this year will bring. All I can do is make goals for myself and do my best to meet them. Will I meet each goal one hundred percent? Probably not and that is okay.

Twenty-Ninteen.

Twenty-Ninteen.

Twenty-ninteen. What a year it has been. As with every year, there were highs and there were lows. Even with the lows, I can honestly say this has been the best year of my life. So many milestones were a part of my 2019. While it felt overwhelming at times to have them all happen at what felt like once, I am entering into 2020 feeling more content than any time I can remember.

The Best Day Ever. So Far.

The Best Day Ever. So Far.

October 6, 2018. The best day ever, well so far. It was a wonderful and busy and amazing and exciting day. But let’s go back a couple of days before.

The weekend we got engaged my parents were coming into town, so the whole week before I was running around trying to make sure our apartment was perfect for when they arrived. This was the first time my parents were visiting me in Seattle and the first time they were visiting Riley and I in our home together. There were many loads of laundry, vacuuming, mopping and oven cleaning (why did I think my mom would look INSIDE the oven?!). My parents are by no means critical, but I always feel this pressure when they come to visit.

Life Lately

Life Lately

I realize that I have not posted in the past couple of months, but I would like to think it was for good reason. I decided at the beginning of this year that I wanted to make the blog a priority, but I also wanted to give myself the grace to not post when the situation warranted. Well, the situation warranted about three months ago. So lets time travel back to February of 2019 and talk about the past few months.

Travel Goals.

Travel Goals.

I talk a lot about the places I have been and the places that I plan to go in a period of time, but I have never talked about what my ultimate travel goals are. I love traveling the United States and seeing all that our country has to offer. I talked more about this in this post (check it out here!). In fact a goal of mine is to visit all 50 states by the time I am 35 (that was originally 30, but life). But, I obviously also want to see countries and cultures outside of my own. I have another goal to visit five new countries in five years!

New Year, New Me?

New Year, New Me?

Hello again, friends. 2019 is set to be a pretty big year for me. I am getting married. It is the first full year in my job. An exciting trip to the east coast (full disclosure its my honeymoon).  And, I am guessing, many fun surprises along the way. Over all, my hope for 2019 is to make small changes that help enhance the things I love in my life and love to do, while decreasing the things that are not good for me and hurting me in the long term. So, lets talk about the goals that will hopefully help make that happen.

Life Updates

Life Updates

I love writing and blogging, but I will admit that I am not the best at doing it consistently. I want to, I want to post a couple times a week, but it just doesn’t happen. Things get busy and this gets put on the back burner. I prioritize dinner with friends, travel, sleep, watching Netflix over this. As I think about it more and more, I realize that this is something that means a lot to me and should probably be prioritize over others.
