Hello 2014!

1/06/2014

Oh 2013 where do I even begin... 
you were a year filled with lots of highs and lots of lows! In 2013 we took our first couples vacation to Chicago, celebrated Valentine's DayEaster and my 22nd birthday! AND took a family trip to Nashville for the CMT Award Show {not on the blog.} We also found out that we were expecting our first child in May and that we lost our first child in June

If I had to describe 2013 in one word it would be, "emotional" {both good and bad!} The good times were great but the hard times were really, really hard. I am however very thankful for this year for making me a stronger person and even more thankful for all of my blessings! I'm SO excited for this year and I just know it's going to be a great one! I can feel it! :)

SO... with that being said I have set some New Year resolutions and goals that I would love to share with you guys!

1. Become closer to God- I really want spend more time praying for others, building back a great relationship and spending more time in His word. 

2. Become a better wife- I want to cook more, dedicate more time to my husband, be more interested in his "hobbies/sports" and respect him even more.

3. Get organized- I say this every year but this year I truly want to be more organized in every aspect of my life! I want to declutter, simplify and stay on task! 

4. Expand my photography business- My photography business has seriously taken flight out of nowhere! In the last few weeks I have already booked 3 weddings, 1 engagement session, 1 senior session and 4+ Valentine's Day shoots! HOLY COW! I would love to eventually make this into a full time career so I can stay home full time with my babies and make my own hours/schedule!

5. Pay off remaining debt- We are on our way to becoming completely DEBT free and I can't wait for that glorious day!! 

6. Travel- I want to at least travel to three or more new locations! Already planning two!!! :)

7. Finish ALL renovations- I want to finish our house completely this year and build our deck before spring! Fingers crossed! 

8. Eat healthier- I want to drop pounds and inches but by doing it the RIGHT way! 

9. Blog- MORE!

10. Become a mommy- God willing!! :) 

What are some of your goals this year?!! I love reading them!!

  4. 1 & 2 are definitely on my list! It's hard though being "a good wife" when you work full-time and have a toddler! Now, to add to the mix, another baby?! Sheesh! I only hope that I can accomplish all the goals and resolutions that I set for myself this year! Good luck to you, pretty girl!
