Ring in the New Year!

I'm ringing in the New Year with bare feet and tulle…I can't think of anything better! 

But really, I cannot believe 2015 has snuck up on me so quickly! This last year sped by and drug on all at the same time. Which I realize sounds impossible but I'm sure you know what I'm talking about. 
This time last year we weren't even engaged…we hadn't even said "I love you" yet. Now we are happily married and more in love than ever. This time last year I was still new to the blogging scene and Utah scene. Now I don't get lost every time I leave my house and I have grown leaps and bounds along side this blog of mine. It is beyond crazy to me what can change in a year!

That being said. I am totally one for making plans and goals and needing a fresh start sort of push in the right direction. Some people are haters of New Years resolutions because they say they never work. For me I have seen so much change in myself and in my life over the last four years and it really does have a lot to do with making New Years resolutions. I LOVE the idea of the opportunity to start fresh. To look back and see what worked out the previous 365 days, and what didn't. Then to CHANGE those things that didn't. For some I suppose it just simply doesn't work. However, in my opinion, I don't see a better way to improve and make positive changes than to evaluate life and see where improvements need to be made, then settings goals to do so! 

So for me this upcoming year will be all about PRIORITIES. Yup, that's my official word of the year. I have definitely improved this over the years but I still am human and tend to let important people and important things fall by the way side. When I took the time to evaluate this and look back on the last year I was proud of myself in a lot of departments. Priorities however wasn't one of them. I tend to get so focused on working hard at one thing that the really important things can take a back seat. NO GOOD. So I guess my other word this year will be BALANCE. 

I am excited to work on these two goals/words over the next year and see how I can improve in these areas of life a bit more! I am excited to continue to work hard at my last years goals but also excited to learn to say no more often so I can really put what/who is important first!

2014 was one of my best years yet! Thanks to a lot of hard work paying off, a lot of unconditional love, a lot of adventures, and A LOT of courage.

2015 will bring even more of all of those things and I personally cannot wait to see it all unfold!
