it’s 2013.

It’s officially been 1 year and 3 weeks since the greatest wedding of all time (proven here) and our lives couldn’t be happier or fuller. Us Morgan’s have literally had so much change in these 386 days…we bought a house, gave it a face lift, trained and ran a half marathon, adopted 2 babies dogs, bought a car, started selling Norwex… Although JoMo might argue, we crave a busy, can’t-sit-still life.

Which brings me to what I hope to accomplish in 2013. JoMo and I made a list of goals on our honeymoon last year and I’m pleased to say we came out on top of almost every single one. And here are some of our family goals, as well as some of my own:

  1. Less TV, More Words (personal). Last summer, JoMo and I decided to give up cable. So far, I’ve only been able to fray (not cut) the cord of my TV obsession. This year, I need to continue to cut down on all the hours of mindless TV watching and get more words in my life. Words meaning books, blogs, articles, ANYTHING. With my new iPad Mini, I’ve already read half a book in these first few weeks.
  2. Be more creative (personal). This one is huge. The combination of buying a house, being on a tight decor budget and Pinterest have forced me to go DIY and become more creative. While DIY is a must in 2013, my big creative goals are starting continuing this blog and getting back into photography. It’s been several years since I took my first photo class and my sister-in-law (who’s stayed with her photo ed) is becoming an amazing photographer and frankly I’m jealous. It’s on the list.
  3. Continue to get healthy (family). 2012 meant training for and running our first marathon, JoMo becoming obsessed with CrossFit and us “going Paleo” for the first time. We made huge strides in our health and really enjoyed accomplishing such big goals together. We weren’t perfect all year and have fallen off the running and Paleo trains over the past few months, not to mention adding two active dogs to our pack – we’ve got to get back on the saddle.
  4. Simplify (family). In every sense of the word. One, we have a lot of stuff. Two, we continually try to organize and streamline our lives. Three, I have started selling amazing Norwex products that inherently simplify our lives. Four, we have a lot of stuff.

So here’s to 2013. Making goals. Three weeks into the year. Does it count that I wrote an Evernote about my goals on day 2 of 2013?
