2018 Goals

Hey friends! Last year I posted a bucket list/2017 goals post about halfway through the year, and I loved having the list to keep up with! I’ve been working on building a list of 2018 goals (which stemmed from this post) and wanted to post it now to start crossing things off.

2018 is going to be a big year for me and has already brought so many extra blessings and challenges. I’ll be celebrating some big milestones like graduating college and my 21st birthday in 2018, but I’m also focusing on making my prayer life a priority.

Thank you for all your support, I’m so excited for this year!
