2016 Resolutions: Goal Setting

Happy 2016! I spent the holiday weekend re-organizing our apartment and decluttering. I cleaned out bags of stuff to donate-- it feels good to get rid of stuff I've been meaning to clean out. With that out of the way, I have a few more things I want to accomplish this year both for this blog and in my personal life.


I'm always working to make this blog better- post quality, new content, and better photography and images. When I look back on old posts, I can definitely see an improvement and it makes me proud, but there's still so much I can be doing better. There always will be, that's just how I am.

I have also been experimenting with video and would like to keep this up. While I have no problem taking photos, I get so nervous in front of video cameras! If I'm not talking it's fine, but I have an aversion to speaking on camera that I'm trying to overcome :P

Any blog post or video suggestions are more than welcome, please share your ideas below in the comments!


Travel more... and not just for work but for pleasure. I have quite a few places on my "list" and some aren't even that far away (um, Grand Canyon! Practically in my backyard). I need to try to get Steve on a plane, can you believe he's never been??

Move to a bigger place- I feel we've outgrown our current apartment and we'd like to find a bigger place, preferably even a house to rent. Luckily we're in suburbia so rent isn't too crazy high, hopefully something great will come along... and soon!

Learn a new skill. I've always yearned for knowledge and am constantly learning, but I'd like to put my mind to one specific thing-- such as learning a new language (French, maybe?) or take a photography class to really learn how to use my camera and develop my photography skills. I need to toy around with some ideas-- I'll happily take your suggestions!

What are your 2016 resolutions/goals?

PS- Be sure to stop by tomorrow for my new Good HUES-Day weekly linkup!


  1. Happy New Year! I love doing a good purge...what a great way to start the new year. :)

    This year I'm not making resolutions but I chose a word "completion". I have a ton of projects that I want to finish: finish writing my novel and then editing it, finally climb the hurdle of my fitness goal, and finally make our rental house feel like "home".

    I hope you're able to meet all of your resolutions for this year.

  2. Happy New Year! Hoping to have more fun in 2016 :)

  3. I too, love learning and never think you get too old to do so. Happy New Year to you!
