Ringing in 2014

Hello 2014! I am happy to see you! 2013 was not my favorite year, so I’m not too sad to see it go. While we had a lot of really incredible experiences and learned a lot, 2013 was a bit of a sad year for the Allens.

Neither Alex or I have ever been much of a New Years resolution setter. We don’t really have any specific goals, per se, but I’ve identified some hopes and things that we’re looking forward to in the new year and thought I’d share them.

*We are counting down the days to our 4-week trip to Europe this year {…which we need to get planned!}

*Several family members have trips planned to come visit us over the next few months

*My fingers are crossed that we will “finish” decorating our house this year – at least our bedroom, office and guest bedroom

*This year we will be focusing on saving money and planning for our upcoming expenses and our future

*We have four weddings to attend this summer that we are very much looking forward to

*Alex just joined a new gym and has some fitness goals, while I am planning on starting Pilates shortly

*I always look forward to trying new foods and learning more about cooking – if only I could keep up with Pinterest!

I am really looking forward to 2014. I think it’s going to be a great year!

Cheers!
