It’s February, which means that we’re officially into the second month of the new year! I have a few goals that I’m hoping to accomplish this year and a couple of things I’ve been planning behind-the-scenes, that I cannot wait to share with you, today.


  • Exercising: My husband and I got a gym membership, recently, so that we can both develop a more healthier lifestyle. I’ve been getting sick so easily and I am hoping that exercising will not only help my health, but help me feel better about myself as well.
  • Photoshoots: It’s been too cold for me to even think about heading outside to shoot photography, but I’m hoping to get a couple of shots in for a few posts I’m planning.
  • Quiet time: One of my goals for this year is to grow deeper in my relationship with God. I want to try to work on having a new scheduled quiet time that works with my teaching schedule.
  • Posts: I’m thinking of increasing the number of times I post per week. Once a week works well with my teaching schedule, but I’m not sure the frequency you would prefer more.
  • Giveaways: I haven’t done nor participated in giveaways in a while, but I have some coming up soon that you’ll be able to enter in! When I can afford it, I love to be able to hold giveaways as a thank you to those of you who consistently support my blog!
  • Newsletters: I’ve been working on developing a more consistent newsletter schedule. I feel like before I would write newsletters one month and then forget about it for the next two. However, I really enjoy connecting with others and I’ve actually shared some really honest and private news in my newsletters that I have not shared on the blog! It’s something that I’m learning to love because I feel that I am getting to connect more than I am normally able to on my blog. I actually look forward to planning out and scheduling content for my newsletters!

  • Podcasts: I know that you can’t watch podcasts, but that’s really been most of what my husband and I have been enjoying, lately. One we were really engulfed by is “Dirty John” – a podcast that I would definitely recommend for those of you who enjoy mysteries.
  • Holes: This is primarily because it’s one of the books I’ve read this past semester with my students, but I forgot how good the book and the movie was. Perhaps it’s because my students are so into it, but we’re re-watching the movie and I find that I’m enjoying it more than I did when it first came out. I thought it was cheesy honestly when it first premiered.
  • America’s Next Top Model: I don’t know why, but I’ve really gotten into this season’s show. I used to watch ANTM a lot during high school and lately, I’ve found myself wanting to watch the recent episodes more and more. In fact, I’m watching an episode even as I’m writing this!



  • Trusting God’s Plan in Our Lives: I loved this post by Erica! It shares some of the struggles I’ve had in this area and shares some good reminders about God’s faithfulness and character!
  • Are You Too Easily Pleased? Kristin makes a lot of really good points in this post and really calls into question whether or not we’re more pleased with God or with worldly things such as money!
  • The Tortilla That Changed My Everything: Meal planning is something that I’ve honestly struggled with since being married. I was so used to making whatever I wanted without thought that when we got married, it was even harder to try to figure out how to plan out meals more.
