Begin a true prayer life.This one is highly personal, but I feel good about where I am.
So, I didn’t finish them all. Womp. I think the thing I regret most is not reading more. Number 7 and Number 24 were affected by that, so that is a bummer. I also do wish we could have gotten the house painted, but I didnt realize what an undertaking it was. Im happy with how much we got done, thanks in large part to Jared’s parents helping! I think running a 5k, and knitting a scarf were unrealistic goals… I hate running and I have tried to love knitting. You know how you see other people love things and do them with gusto and you think you should too? Totally guilty of that with those two items! I will ride in a plane one day though. When the funds and destination are just right, I know I will be up in the air! I dont have any excuse for the photography series goal… I just didnt put any effort into it. I think its because Im scared to, but thats another blog post for another day.
So that’s that! I was going to share all the new recipes I tried, but they were on the Notes App on my phone and one day they were all gone. Even syncing my phone didn’t help. I can remember a few, but definitely not all of them. Oh, and of course our kitchen. Its really pretty, there are just two small projects left and then it will 100% complete!
Totally random picture of Chief, but it makes me giggle.
