My main goal for 2018 was to complete a Project 365 since I was sad about the lack of pictures I took in 2017. Well, I was going strong on this until mid-June and then it all fell apart :( You can see my posts here. I am going to try to do another one in 2019. As with last year, my goal is to take more pictures.
June 9. 2018 -- Since we didn't celebrate Father's Day last year, and Rachel's birthday was on Father's Day this year, I surprised Dave with an early Father's Day celebration this day. Dave loves breakfast so I made this delicious frittata. Yum!
This was my last photo a day post for this year :(
(Can I just add that I LOVE that when I Googled "slump image" this was the first thing which came up!!! Don't tell me it's a freaky Google algorithm reading my computer usage, tell me the whole world means "reading slump" when they Google "slump image" because, really, what other kind of slump is there?!?! Ha!)
For 2019 I am setting four big goals and then I am going to commit myself to smaller monthly goals. I find life is more manageable that way.
My four big goals are:
1) Complete a Project 365. See above...
2) Read through my whole Bible in one year. I have set this as a goal and never completed it. This year I want the Bible to be one of the books I read this year. I am especially excited about this because I have my grandma's old Bible and it is neat to run across verses she underlined and to feel connected to her that way.
3) Write more book reviews on the blog. I have posted every book I've read since October 2016 over on Instagram, and before that I was doing mini-reviews on Fridays for the previous year. You can see them all here. However, Instagram isn't a great platform for reviewing books in depth.
My friends Emily and Allena (you can see their blogs in my links on the right) post reviews of every book they read on their blogs and, while I don't think I will do that, I get so many great reading ideas from their reviews. And don't get me started on all the other people's reviews who also influence my reading! I want to give back to the book community by reciprocating. And no, I don't want to go down the Goodreads rabbit hole, so publishing more reviews on the blog feels like a good compromise.
The last book I reviewed on the blog.
Thank you to Kimberly, Andi, Tamara, and Tanya for this #AMonthofFaves linkup. Have I said yet how much I will miss it in January???
