I am very excited for this year! Aaron and I have a lot of fun plans ahead and I look forward to sharing our plans with you all here. Here are my #goals for this year.

Listen to audio books and podcasts
Since graduating college, I've been slacking off in all things reading and learning. So I really need to step it up this year. But I'm just going to start off with listening to books. I've never been much of a reader but I'm hoping to get thru listening to the whole Harry Potter series this year. Seems like one of those books everyone needs to read right?

Aaron is really good at listening to podcasts when he's driving and I want to do the same. I've been listening to NPR on my way to work but I want to include podcasts like The Briefing, Ask Pastor John, Serial, and some other fun podcast during my commute.

Eat smart
Towards the end of 2015, Aaron and I have been getting sick. Unfortunately, one of my sickness was due to inhaling too much spray paint. Whatever the case, Aaron and I vowed less consumption of fast food and more acai bowls and salmon. Because they are both really tasty, why not eat something you love?

Finish furnishing and decorating
It's time to get control of our home. We've been moving very slowly in our home and we're tired of the slow pace. So we're speeding it up and getting our furnishing and decorating in order.

We don't need a lot and we're resolving to keep it that way and to live life simple. And a part of that is using the money God has blessed us with for others - whether it is through design and music, service, or monetary giving.

Since moving in, we've realized how much STUFF we collected. We just have way too much stuff. The good thing about this STUFF is that we can get rid of it with intention. A lot of the things I own are craft supplies that can be used and given away as gifts. You'll see more of those things on the blog.
