Well, it’s here! The last day of the year has arrived and sweet readers, I do hope your year was filled with sweet memories and many blessings. As 2018 approaches, I have been thinking much about being more intentional and living with more focus to create a fuller life. That my friends will be revealed through this little blog and I’m excited to share it all with you. Suffice to say, I’ve working on goals, words, ideas, projects, etc. The box begins to unwrap soon so I do hope you’ll stay tuned. But since today is it to finish the books on 2017, I wanted to share a few favorites with you. Here goes…
I started the year off reading this little devotional. It was a perfect read and I may jut have to pull it back out again to start 2018.
These were a few of my favorite looks. Classic style all the way. Why do venture away from it? I’m never as comfortable when I’m trying to dress like someone else. Maybe I’ll remember this lesson in 2018 and dress like me…like my momma taught me.
Whitney and I did a Create28 again. These were my favorite looks.
I participated in the #thefierce50 campaign with bloggers over 50.
I wrote a 10 day devotional. It was something I always wanted to do. I think I’ll do it again…at least that’s the plan.
I also tried bangs and I decided I have a love/hate relationship with them. Not sure if I’m going back or forward with them.
I participated in the Fierce 50 Follow Friday with a bunch of lovely blogging ladies who are in that age bracket of 50+.
I also did a lot of Beachbody workouts and drank my weight in Shakeology.
It wa a slow month for blogging. I was struggling but a Mother’s Day Brunch was good for my heart.
Another slow and hard month for me. We were trying to close on one house and get our down payment back on another. I was mentally exhausted. Turns out while I was out of the office closing on our house all of our upper management was out on administrative leave. My heart was heavy.
Moving day…we did all ourselves. My hubby said I was a tough old broad. That’s a compliment in my family. Took a toll on me though. I’ve never been so exhausted!
Took a mini life assessment in July. Was trying to get my mojo back after a couple of difficult months of stress.
A month of workouts…everyday and sometimes twice a day. Proved to myself I could do it!
These looks were well received on the blog.
I also participated in the Common Threads Challenge.
This lovely daughter of mine turned 30! Wow, just WOW! How did that happen?!
Went on my first wine tasting. It is definitely a taste I’ll have to learn to love but I’m willing to try.
I definitely blogged more about life, which is what I truly enjoy.
I tried this awesome skin care from Saraghae. Really a fab 5-Step Routine that I’m still using everyday.
Shared about my trip home in Septebmer and this house. Grandma’s house that holds so many memories for my family.
Finally was able to bust out the winter coat. This was my favorite look of the month.
That’s the wrap on 2017 from the blog. Hope you enjoyed the trip down memory lane with me. Oh, I think it’s so fun to look back and be reminded of the year.
Now for looking ahead. There’s one little change I want to incorporate into 2018:
I would like to be more intentional is connecting with people. I truly enjoy writing little notes and encouraging people espcially when they are down. Do you want to receive a snail mail note from me? Send me an email at email@example.com with your address and sometime this year you’ll receive that note from me. That’s one way to start being intentional!
Be blessed ~ Carrie
