This year has had it’s share of ups and downs, and I am very thankful for every minute of it. I thought I’d share with you some of my favorite things of the year.
I’m shocked that I managed to read 75 books this year. I set a goal of 50, and was happy just to hit that number. I don’t plan on setting a higher goal next year, because I don’t want the pressure. Reading is supposed to be relaxing, and I’m not going to stress myself out anymore over meeting a certain number/goal of books read each year.
I am fortunate to have made some friends in the blogging world. Here are just a few I love to follow each week.

Noteworthy Moments of 2014
My daughter turned 4! It’s crazy to me how fast she’s growing. She is amazing, and my hubby and I are so blessed to be her parents.
Lost 63 lbs. And finally got my tattoo reward last weekend.
Got a new kitty. She is a complete pain in the ass sometimes, but I adore her.
Blogging and Book Goals for 2015
Review more books on my blog (I got lazy and burnt out towards the end of the year).
Re-read some of my favorite books.
Read a series I’ve had on my list for a long time.
Read all of the Sarah Jio books that I haven’t read, yet.
Personal Goals for 2015
Maintain my weight and start exercising. We will have a new workout facility at work, and I plan to utilize it.
Save money for a cabin getaway with my hubby for our anniversary, in September. We did this a few year ago, and I’m dying to go back!
Spend less time worrying and thinking about things that are out of my control. Live in the present and be grateful for every minute.
I wish everyone a safe and Happy New Year! May 2015 bring you lots of love, happiness, and more reading time.
