  1. Hey Meg!
    Thanks for hosting! My resolution this year is to do a better job at reviewing my goals and aligning my life with them!

    xo, Laura

  2. I don't do resolutions anymore. Instead I choose one word which is my focus for the year. My word this year is Seek


  3. Liv @ Healthy LivJanuary 05, 2015

    I still haven't decided if I'm going to make any New Years' Resolutions. I usually don't, but I'm tempted to this year!

  4. Sarah EmilyJanuary 05, 2015

    My New Year's resolutions are to: keep blogging, learn a bit more about Photography and perfect my skills, and to accomplish my fitness/weight loss goals!


  5. My resolution this year is basically to do more. I want to blog more, cook more, move more...

  6. I'm still working on exactly WHAT I want to work on for the new year. I have two fitness goals I'm toying with and I want to get better at granting grace and bettering myself.

    My new years resolution is to keep trying to get a 4.0 again, I got a 3.8 for fall semester so I need to go back to a 4.0--had it for a year then fall semester was one hard semester! :) Happy New Years!

  8. You're very welcome - thanks for stopping by! I think you are such an inspriation. It is so easy to verbally make goals and then fall off the wagon with no accountability or reassessment. Good for you for having a plan and keeping up with it!! Happy New Year, Laura! :)

  9. Hey Beckey! I have a few other friends that do this too and I love it. What a great thing, to have a word to center your focus and push your efforts toward in the New year! :)

  10. Hi Meg! I'm having trouble linking up with your blog because it only allows 15 characters for the blog name. Other linkups usually allow 35-50 characters, could you adjust this please? Because I'd love to join :) Thanks


  11. Hello Chioma! Thanks for your message. Mine is actually a set template, but feel free to abbreviate your blog name so you can join! :)

  12. Yay! Thanks Jess :) I'm already to relocate to Hawaii!

  13. Gail HarrisJanuary 05, 2015

    I'm striving for excellence, not perfection in 2015! That's my 'resolution'! :)

  14. I can't wait to see pictures from your tropical getaway!! My resolution is to have more patience:)

  15. I've got a goal to run 12 races in the next 12 months.

  16. I plan to be more organized, make healthier choices, and be more intentional in my day to day life. Just discovered your blog and link-up; thanks for hosting!

  17. Diane AdamoJanuary 06, 2015

    I will be posting an entire list of mom's new years resolutions, but in particular, I need to become much clearer about my goals going forward. I have a tendency to take on way too much so narrowing things down and making them more doable would be a great start for me!

  18. Thanks for hosting this link-up! It's my first one so I hope I'm doing it right! I'm not really one for resolutions, instead I create a list of "hopes" for the year. I hope to continue to explore my creative side and travel to new places as often as possible!
