2014 Goals

20131229-131342.jpg

    With 2013 coming to a close I am setting 2014 goals. Not resolutions for the New Year but goals. I think if I set goals for myself I will accomplish them instead of giving up on them. I’m looking forward to the New Year and what possibility it holds. Do you have any New Year resolutions or goals? If so let me know! I’d love to hear them. 

 

 1. Do the 365 Self- Portrait Challenge. 

 2. Devote more time to this blog and grow with it.

 3. Read 40 books (no picture books!).

 4. Train for my half-marathon.

 5. Grow in my food and still life photography.

 6. Juice often.

 7. Do 24 crafts throughout the whole year. (that’s two every month)

 8. Eat whole, clean foods.

 9. Try to do more yoga.

 10. Learn to love my body. 

So there you have it, my goals for 2014 set and done. I hope everyone had a fantastic year and that you’ll have a great 2014! Much love, Brianna.

Snow Days in December

So last Thursday, the 5th of December the weather decided to sleet. School was cancelled due to possible bad road conditions. On Friday the weather made up it’s mind and decided to snow 4 inches. School was cancelled of course. I jumped for joy as I thought that I had a four day break that was completely unexpected. Then Monday came; so did Tuesday, and Wednesday. School was cancelled. I was going a bit stir crazy by the end of our snow days I’d have to admit. BUT I loved every minute of it. I got to stay home, watch movies, sleep in late, cook and bake, and make Christmas gifts. I hope your December has been going great! One more week of school for me then I’m at for another two weeks. So pictured below are my snow days in a glance. You can click on the pictures for the recipe!
