Ok kids, January 1st, 2018 is almost over (gah!) but I wanted to pop in with an update and a hello! Did you have a fun holiday?! Are you still full from all of the good eats? I will be on an austerity program pronto, lemme tell you 😉
It’s been almost 2 months since I’ve written (!) but it’s been with good reason – we were trying to sell our current home! Are we insane for doing this before Christmas? Yes. Did it work out? No. So we’ll be still living at our current address for now but we are forever grateful for the support (including that of our awesome realtors) while we were in the process. Here are a few shots of our home courtesy of Andy & Paddy:
Now that we’re staying put, I have plans people! A few bathroom re-dos, some organizing projects, a basement re-org…2018 is going to be BUSY!!!
But in thinking of 2018, I thought I’d revisit the post that I wrote welcoming 2017. I was surprised to see that I actually did a few things that I set out to do! I still get on the anxiety train from time-to-time (probably more than I should admit!) BUT, with my blog I wanted to:
- Reach more people (I just reached 400 instagram followers – yay!)
- Collaborate with other bloggers (Check out my contributor posts as a member of the DIY Passion Creative Team!)
- Participate in an ORC (Here’s my finished powder room!)
Reading that post made me feel really accomplished – which brings me to my word of the year for 2018, “ACCOMPLISH”! Things that I keep putting off until later or projects that I keep mulling over but never do – my goal it to accomplish them all (well, as many as humanly possible).
I’m right now creating a massive list of things to do (and in a fit of organizing frustration, my make-up drawer is getting an overhaul as we speak) so I hope that with that, I can keep up my first goal of writing to you every week. I had a hard time doing that last year but I’m determined to deliver to you a new post, every Monday morning, that you can mull over as you sip your coffee, tea or cocktail (time zones people!)
Another goal of mine this year is to hear more from YOU! Is there anything you’d like to see more or less of? Are you a fan of my shopping posts? Do you prefer massive room overhauls? Or is organizing more your jam? I’d love it if you let me know!
Until then, Happy New Year! (and see you next Monday!) ♥
