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. 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.
Over the past couple of weeks (read months), I have talked a lot about our sweet love story. From our not so cute “meet cute,” to our falling in love, to each of us figuring out the other was their one, to the day he got down on one knee. I love our love story, it is my favorite one by far and I cannot wait to spend the rest of my life with my sweet man. But before I can do that, we have to plan that wedding thing. Lol.
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.
The beginning of our relationship and a light in my life for a while. I talked about this in my 2018 post, but the beginning of 2018 (and really into the middle of the year) was rough for me. I talked about our Not So Meet Cute. Now I am going to tell you about how this new relationship was always something I could count on to be good. It was something that made the hard times just a little better.
To be honest, I was a bit nervous about posting this. I do try to be open, but also still want parts of my life to be private. However, this is a story that is just so close to my heart that I want to share.
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!
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.
2018. What a year it was. Full of ups and downs. Some of the happiest times in my life but also some of the saddest. It is a year I can say I will honestly never forget. It was the year I fell in love. The year I lost someone dear to me. The year I found the job I always wanted. It was a big year. A huge year.
Happy Election Day friends! I just wanted to hop on here and remind everyone to vote! I will admit that I used to be one of those people that would say, “I don’t care about politics.” The reality is that is total BS. Politics effect everyone. Politics effect our daily lives. If you have any other excuses, just listen to President Obama on why those aren’t exactly excuses.
