I figured this would be a good place to put this list since then all you people stopping by can hold me accountable. right? DO IT!  You might notice these aren't all goals. Some of them are just things that I want to do! Do you have any goals you've set for yourself or any particular things you hope to do this coming year? 


quick note: my list isn't in any particular order. i just wrote down things as they came to my mind. 

little moments

i love my family and these little moments we share // i am blessed.


we bought a pool!

charlie gets hot so easily now that it's warming up outside, it's a bulldog thing. so jake and i thought she could use a little pool to lounge in. turns out she is pretty sporty! the best part is watching her ears as she dives in... she looks like she could fly away. 

yes, we spoil her.
