Hello 2017


Hello, 2017!
I feel like I'm already really going to like you.
We rang in the New Year with friends and family by our side and I couldn't have asked for a better way to say farewell to 2016.
I want to write this post today so I have something to look back on a year from now.
2017 is going to be a big year - I can just feel it.
I feel like 2016 was a big year of growth.
Growth of my little space here on the web and growth of me as a person.
I stepped outside my comfort zone many times this year and an amazing thing happened as a result -I gained a lot of confidence this year.
Confidence in who I am and the ability to not give a shit what anybody else thinks.
I ignored all the nay sayers and did my own thing and I couldn't be happier.
 2017 for me is going to be the year of being intentional.
I'm very impulsive by nature, which can be really amazing but I also know the negative effects of that {hello Amex bill}
This year I want to slow down and be very intentional in everything that I do.
I want to focus on relationships and make them stronger than ever.
I want to continue to clear clutter from my world and only allow the things that I love or need into my home.
I have spent the past two years de-cluttering and I am almost at a point where I love everything in my home which feels amazing and I want to continue down that path.
I want to be more intentional with spending.
I want to have weekly money meetings where I discuss our household budget with my husband so we can pay off our debts and create wealth.
I want to make lists before I do any kind of shopping - whether that be grocery shopping, shopping for the home or my wardrobe - which will not only result in saving money but also only allowing things I really need or love into our home.
I want to be intentional with what I put into my body.
I want to eat foods that are better for me.
I want to exercise more for my body and my sanity!
I want to make sure that this year I make myself a priority.
I've spent the last 8 years putting myself last and I was starting to feel pretty burnt out - so this year mama comes first so I can care better for those around me.
I want to Travel.
With less stuff and less spending this should be easier to do.
Eventually, a few years from now I would love to be able to do three trips a year.
One with my hubby, one as a family and one with my girlfriends. 
 I'm so excited for a whole new year of endless possibilities.
Happy New Year!
