Here is a list of 50 things I wanted to do as of last February. I'm pretty excited to be marking things off the list or at least feel like they are in progress.
After reading through my list I'm also kind of sad that I can't say that some of these are accomplished. This is a new year with big things a head of me. I'm looking forward to checking more off my list!
These are some that I feel are done or in the works.
3. I have become a wife and I'll be a mommy in seven months!
5. I do feel like my relationship is better so I'll count this as in progress!
7. I took some nature shots this past year because of the beauty of Gods creation, can't wait to continue this one!
8. The words "I love you" are so sweet. I'm working not to over use love or throw it around such as I love that shirt. No, I don't love that shirt, I LOVE my husband.
10. I'm definitely getting better about cooking from scratch. Looking at some new recipes lately!
20. I feel like I am still learning what this one really means but I hope I'm making progress
23. I have learned a lot in the last year through marriage, relationships, work and many other things. But I will continue to learn so much more!
27. I'm kind of using my blog as my journal. Finally sticking with it a bit.
29. Did this last week! I may make another one tonight.
30. I did this for my wedding. But it's already back, for a good cause though!
50. I'm definitely happy. God continues to bless and provide for our growing little family!
