New Year’s Plans

December 30, 2015

I’ve always been one of those people who totally loses track of what day it is while on vacation, so when I realized that tomorrow is the last day of 2015 I was a little shocked. This year has been filled with big changes for me and I feel incredibly blessed that although there have been lows, that most of 2015 was filled with smiles and laughter.

To be honest, I haven’t really come up with any concrete new year’s resolutions for 2016 yet. Obviously I’ll try to eat cleaner and keep going to the gym, but I also have bigger and more personal aspirations for myself for the coming year. I want to learn more, travel more, give back to the community, meet new people… So not anything too concrete but I’m going to spend 2016 creating a better version of myself and see how I can positively affect the world that we live in today.

On another note, I’m leaving for Los Angeles tomorrow to spend New Year’s Eve with my boyfriend and his family! I haven’t been out to California for a couple of years (even though I was born in LA), so I’m super excited to be back on the west coast at least for a couple of days!

What do you guys have planned for New Year’s Eve? And do y’all have goals in mind for 2016?

      My mom has been asking me about all of my resolutions and plans for 2016 and I’m getting so excited talking about them!

  • NYE snuck up on me as well! Hope you enjoyed the holiday in CA – so jealous of the beautiful weather there!


    • Courtney

      I ended up having some travel difficulties so I spent NYE in Charleston, SC which actually ended up being a ton of fun too! I’m excited to see what 2016 has in store for all of us!

  • I hope you had an amazing New Year in CA! I feel completely the same as you, I want 2016 to be the year I become more rounded and become the person I want to be! 🙂 I hope you have an amazing 2016 lovely!

      I love that your resolutions for 2016 have to do with bettering yourself, which is something I feel like more people should be focused on doing! I hope that you’ve had a wonderful first few days of 2016 as well!

  • I think it’s great to keep resolutions fairly loose so they can adapt and change throughout the year. Good luck with yours and have a wonderful trip! Happy 2016!
