2017 Goals

Hey there friends, happy Friday and happy 2017! I hope the first week of the new year has been all kinds of fresh and magical so far! In an attempt to keep things real around here, I have to confess that I had no intention of blogging anymore. 2016's theme in my life seemed to be "overwhelmingly busy all the time". Naturally I made a ton of goals to slow down this year, learn to say no, etc etc. So when it came time to thinking about renewing my domain name and keeping this blog, I initially thought it was time to shut it down. I had every intention of doing that, until I started to think about how much I used to love taking pictures and blogging. How much joy it brought me to make new friends online and share my life with totally cool strangers who were so supportive (some who even became real life friends), and how much I've been missing this little hobby of mine! I'm not 100% sure what I want to do with this site just yet, but for now it will continue to be my happy place where I share my goals and fun pictures of things I'm up to.

If you've been here for a while, you know that I love making lists and writing out goals. I'm actually really good at that! What I really suck at is following through, ha! I think that huge flaw of mine is a big reason why I spent so much time last year feeling like everything was so out of control and time was slipping out of my hands. This year I've decided I'm going to take a different approach. Instead of making goals for the whole year that I'll likely forget about by February, I'm going to focus on a few goals and check in/change them up at the start of every quarter this year. SO, here are my 2017 first quarter goals (January, February, March):

1. Go to yoga 3 times a week
2. Read 6 books (that's 2 per month. Totally doable)
3. Develop a peaceful (and realistic) morning routine.
4. Limit eating out and buying coffee to once a week.
5. Mail friends and family birthday cards instead of sending them a text.
6. Take 1 photo a day!

Easy enough, yeah? :)

Your turn! What are your goals for 2017? I'd love to hear them! 


  1. I also want to take one photo a day. I don't think I remembering to do it enough!


  2. It's something so simple but so hard to remember for some reason! Good luck with your goals this year Lauren! :)
