17 Goals for 2017

New year, new goals! I can't believe that it is already 2017, I feel like this last year flew by. I'm hoping for good things in this upcoming year and am trying to keep an upbeat positive attitude! I love the feeling of a fresh new start and there's something very special about the first day of a new year. Just breathe it in.

I'm trying to keep this years goals a little more realistic, since I think I overshot last year. But then again, visiting the ocean is a pretty lofty goal...

1. Read 12 books
2. Renovate basement
3. Run my fifth 5k
4. Set up a nursery
5. Blog at least twice a month
6. Take a pottery class with Dan
7. Visit the ocean
8. Go on a weekend camping trip
9. Clear backyard and bring in fill
10. Make a budget
11. Go on a date once a month with Dan
12. Buy new windows for the basement
13. Start a couples infertility support group
14. Colour more often
15. Start organizing photos on the computer
16. Attend a dance workshop
17. Do bookkeeping at least once a month

How are my fellow goal setters doing with their yearly goals?Anyone else making any? Feel free to share, I love hearing what other people are up to!


  1. I get really overwhelmed trying to set goals for a great chunk of time. I'm setting a daily goal for now. Once I get my routine established, I'll go to bigger bits of time. So much spinning, knitting, quilting and painting to do!

    1. Big goals can be overwhelming. I think it's great that you are working on daily goals and working your way up from there, knowing your limits is always a good thing.

  2. Haven't quite got mine organized yet, but they're developing. They do include three big trips. But can't you make it once a week? And make sure you get to the ocean. You'll never regret little things around home you didn't do, but if you don't do the big things you may not get a chance later. Don't wait for retirement!

    1. Three big trips? I love it! Getting away is hard for us, with Dan owning his own business and all our extra money going towards adoption. But I am working really hard on getting a trip planned to the ocean, it's not that far away.
