Happy Thursday friends! Amidst being super busy with work, feeling sick and not getting nearly enough sleep, I decided to take the morning off yesterday for some much-needed Rocky Mountain therapy with my bestie.

Don’t get me wrong- I’m definitely happy about all of the things that I did do, and moving across the country and finding a new job certainly took a bit of effort.

Others (like make sauerkraut or go fly-fishing) could easily be accomplished in one day.
For this year’s list, I’ve decided to make it a combination of simple goals and other things that are a bit more complex (that I really hope to accomplish. Some are repeats of last year (and even the year before), but are things that I want to do again. Here goes:
