A look back at 2014

When 2014 rolled in, I decided to have a little fun with my goals. I don’t like labeling them as resolutions. I wanted something that I was excited about; something to look forward to completing. I think I did a good job in picking my 2014 goals.

My 2014 goals were:

Pie in my kids faces
Random act of kindness
Visit a new place
Begin running again
Try a new cookie recipe
Try a new hairstyle

In March I checked up on my goals, and then didn’t check up anymore. Oops. It is only fair, that as 2014 is winding down, I give you a final checkup on my 2014 goals and a look back at some of this year’s highlights – at least the ones I blogged about.

Pie in my kids faces – I got Kaia and Aybra. I am a little hesitant to get Losh.
Random act of kindness – Meh. I did many random acts, but none felt very powerful. I would love to give back in a big way.
Visit a new place – No. Just No. Didn’t really get to anywhere new. Unless you count Moss Mountain Farm.
Begin running again – Meh. I am halfway there.
Try a new cookie recipe – Done. It was a fail.
Try a new hairstyle – Done. This was semi a fail. I didn’t get the cut I wanted and ended up being unhappy, even though the haircut looked nice.

January: We learned that one of our favorite parks had been the victim of arson.
February: Kaia gave a talk on Community Service and got BAPTIZED!!
March: We moved into a new house – just me and the kids <3. Aybra had an awesome Mermaid party.
April: Losh witnessed a wheelchair basketball game.
May: Losh turned 9 aka Half-way-to-eighteen.
June: Losh got baptized and decannulated!
July: I became a mom of a 10 year old.
August: We began a new homeschool year and started off by answering some Frequently Asked Questions.
September: I learned that people in the US are pretty darn spoiled.
October: I had a guest post on my blog and my sister revealed a new book cover (All Falls Down).
November: The road to being debt-free began! Our vlog turned one year old!
December: We celebrated Christmas and I finally narrowed down my blog’s niche (It only took the entire year!)

Overall, I would say 2014 was a fantastic year. 2015 can only get better!

Thank you for experiencing 2014 with us.

    Sounds like you had a busy year. I didn’t set any specific goals last year and won’t this year, but I will take whatever life throws at me :)

    What fun goals. I love the pie in the faces. My kids would think that was the best thing ever. But then I would be in for it! Hope 2015 is great for you!

    I think most of us would say we had successes and failures, just like you. Here’s to 2015!

      I don’t have much money either, but I figure for some things I can sacrifice a little to do some good. I can’t do it as much as I would like.
