Welcoming 2014



We are just hours away from a new year. We will be saying good bye to 2013 and ringing in the New year 2014 in many different ways.

As we reflect over the past year it was full of great blessings, tragic loss, new life, memories, and lots of struggles. As we move forward into a new year, here is to new ideas, new life changes, new challenges, new struggles, new memories, and good times with family and friends.

We are not a family that makes New Years resolutions because we never keep them. We do however sit down together, as husband and wife, and create a list of goals, plans, and dreams for the New Year. We do not do this New Years eve but during the month of December as we move towards the beginning of the new year. Last year we set three goals, we have achieved two of the three goals and have added the third goal back to the list for 2014.

So what are we looking to achieve in 2014:

* Making changes to our home/life to reduce power consumption (this was one of our goals from last year, that we think we can still change)

* Moving towards a healthy lifestyle

* Paying down student loan debt

* Living on one income, as I make the journey to being a stay-at-home mom

* Getting our home more organized

In the year 2013, I was inspired to start this blog. I was told by a friend that I should share some of my ideas and that a blog would be a great way to do that. So for the year of 2014 I have a personal goal of getting 1000 page views monthly on this blog, lovelifesimplified.com.

We are looking forward to the up coming new year and all that it holds for us. Happy New Year everyone!!

What are your goals for 2014?
