This is my fourth year making a list of goals for the year and I still love doing it. If you want to see previous lists, click on any of these years: 2012, 2013, 2014. I find that each year I am better at writing more specific and realistic goals.

What about you? Did you make any goals or resolutions for this coming year? I'd love to hear some of them!


  1. I actually did them this year! And I am going to write them down here in case I lose the random piece of paper I wrote them down on, ha ha.

    4. Start RRSP for Mike
    5. Renovate downstairs bathroom
