Happy New Year! I hope you all had as much fun celebrating the arrival of 2019 as we did. We are feeling so excited and happy about what’s in store for us in 2019. As we sit and reflect on the things that we’ve accomplished in 2018, the steps we’ve taken to be together on this journey make us even more excited to see what lies ahead of us this next year. It’s crazy when you see what a difference one year can make. We know that 2019 is going to be absolutely exciting and fantastic for us as a couple. You won’t want to miss our adventures.
How many of us start each New Year’s with grandiose ideas called Resolutions? We so often hear people ask what’s your new years’ resolution? We make resolutions, like lose weight, stop smoking, start working out or make a financial budget and stick to it. Most of us start out with good intentions but seem to fall short on keeping those resolutions. In fact, typically most people quit within 3 to 6 weeks if they make it past the first few days.
As a couple, we decided to take the idea of resolution in a slightly different direction for 2019. We took a look at some of the things we desire to experience over the next 12 months and made a list of those things. Some are easier but for whatever just never did them and some are much larger and take planning. Together we are going to set out to accomplish all of the things on our list before the ball drops in 2020.
I guess some would call it a bucket list…..a collection of goals, dreams, and aspirations we wish to accomplish in our life.
Our list is personal to us. They are meaningful to us as a couple. These are the things that make us greet each day and the planning of our blog with excitement.
I encourage you to set your own “Amazing Experiences to be had List” and see how much excitement it can cause you in 2019
This will be an ongoing blog post throughout the year. We will update as we accomplish things on our list, and even add pictures of some of these fun adventures.
