Goals for 2019


My thoughts for this blog is to share my ideas about topics I enjoy, but I also want to share things that are more on the personal side. I want to be able to look back and see where we were in life and look back on everything we have been through. I don’t normally write down goals for the new year, mostly because I never follow through with them. But, if I post them online, maybe it will serve as a better reminder to make these goals happen. Overall, our goals are focused around paying off debt and sharing new experiences as a family. These are my/our goals for 2019.
