2015 To-Do List

Well, we're officially three days into 2015 y'all! I hope your year has gotten off to a great start. I mean, with all ten seasons of Friends now on Netflix how could it not?! I feel so lucky to have gotten to spend the start of 2015 surrounded by my good friends and sweet boyfriend. It's such a blessing to have people in my life that make me feel happy and loved. :) 

Since I'm the kind of person who works best from a list (#typeA) I've decided to write another "yearly to do" post. I made a similar post at the beginning of last year and am pleasantly pleased and happy to report that I pretty much completed all my goals! These aren't 'resolutions' per say, but rather things, both big and small, I hope to accomplish by the end of the year. Ready or not, here we go! 

1. Find a "home church" here in Charleston to attend regularly // continue to grow in my faith

2. Join a gym and get back into my group fitness groove // keep my overall health a priority

3. Continue to learn and push myself at work // take chances, be assertive, and try new things 

4. Keep in touch with long-distance friends more intentionally // write letters + skype + phone calls

5. Manage my finances + be adult with my spending habits // responsibility > frivolity 

6. Save up enough money to travel someplace(s) new // be adventurous 

7. Get back into running + train to do the Bridge Run 10k // a long-time goal!

8. Unplug every night and read // focus on slowing down and giving my brain a break from electronics 

9. Explore Charleston and take advantage of living in this amazing city // try new places weekly

10. Make new friends and put myself out there // introvert tendencies can hold me back in this area

11. Grow this blog + get a professional redesign (stay turned!) // create unique and authentic content

12. Learn how to truly use my new dslr (!) // post original photos on the blog each week

What are you 2015 "to-do's"? Here's to a healthy, happy, productive new year! xoxo

  1. Unplug every night and read is one of my goals too! I'm searching for some good new books so let me know if you have any recommendations!

    1. I just finished "Yes Please" by Amy Poehler and it was SO GOOD. Taking on the daunting task of Gone With The Wind now! haha I'd love your recommendations as well! :)

  2. Have you checked out Seacoast? The main campus is in Mount Pleasant and it is an incredible church! They always have such a great message. When did you move to Charleston? One of the best cities, in my opinion! :)

    1. Hi Chloe! No, I haven't but I've heard great things. I'm definitely going to check it out! And I moved (officially) to Charleston in the beginning of December! I was born here and lived here until I was 6 and then moved here again for my freshman year of college before transferring to Clemson. I just can't stop moving back to this beautiful place! :)


I love hearing from my readers!
