Today I have been dreaming about all that this year could hold.
At the tip top of the list is expanding our family. As we hit 9 months of actively waiting (cue cricket chirps) I have renewed hope that God still has huge plans for us and I'm excited to see those play out.
We are sooooo very pumped to being close to being debt free. In our nearly 9 year marriage, we've always had debt. After we pay that last loan payment, I want to start an "international adoption" savings account STAT. I'd also like to go back to cash envelopes (Dave Ramsey style) to be better stewards of what we make.
My photography business really took off last year. What an unexpected blessing! Photography is my fun hobby so for it to be a profitable side business, it's a huge bonus. I put most my proceeds toward equipment or debt payoff so, in 2012, we want to set this money aside for DISNEY. Late Fall maybe? Of course Disney with a newborn won't be happening so we'll just have to see where this goes.
Last year was the start of me finally taking control of my health. Weight loss feels like it will be a forever battle but this year I want to push myself to continue to invest in a healthy lifestyle. I'm on a post Vegas detox (super restricted eating) but I plan on transitioning to a more balanced way of eating next week because I start training for the Lincoln Half Marathon. I got bit by the crazy-you-have-no-idea-what-you're-getting-in-to bug and signed up for it and have regretted it ever since. BUT, it's a new huuuge challenge that I'm up for. I think. Maybe.
I have so many more goals and dreams floating around in my head. Doesn't 2012 just feel like it's going to be a good one?
