New Year, New Goals

Hello! It is good to be back :) These past two weeks were a much needed break! My husband and I spent the time mostly lazying about and visiting locally with friends and family. 

2015 is going to be quite the year. There is a lot of uncertainty in my life this year. I don't know where my husband will get a job, or how my business will look in 6 months time. But I am excited, change is hard but so necessary to keep life interesting.

I decided to write up my goals and place them into 5 categories:

Health + Wellness

  • Start doing yoga
  • Take better care of my health, schedule dr. appointments etc.
  • Pursue mindfulness + work to find strategies to relieve anxiety
  • Eat healthy, cook at home more
  • Drink lots more water
  • Work to remove or relieve things that cause stress
  • Make time to travel and relax


  • Plan more fun & romantic dates with Josh
  • Be better at listening and carving out little romantic moments with Josh
  • Keep better in touch with family and friends
  • Reach out to more local friends for get-togethers
  • Have more dinner parties
  • Continue searching for more local freelance friends


  • Work on improving my home
  • organize all our stuff and upgrade furniture
  • get rid of old and unused things
  • host more events
  • Pursue more dog training, and work to relieve Jack's separation anxiety

Art + Business 

  • Take on fewer but more high paying clients
  • Continue to develop my skills and offerings
  • Work on delegating tasks, bringing on helping hands
  • Get more organized, continue working to better my system
  • Think of new and interesting ways to grow and change my blog
  • Make time for pursuing my own artistic side projects
  • Work on creating side income
  • Work to not be all consumed by work

Give Back

  • Volunteer in my community
  • Support causes I believe in
  • Be there for friends and family in need

I tried to create goals that I could actually pursue - but we will see! What are some of your goals for 2015? 

So happy to be back :)

Xo, Jess
