2017 Mid-Year Goals Review

Each year I’ve blogged, I’ve set out yearly goals. At first I did quarterly reviews, but last year I completely fell off the bandwagon and didn’t do any goal reviews at all. My process for setting and evaluating goals is a very personal one that tends to change from year to year — while I love goals and I think writing them down helps me stay motivated and focused, I’ve also learned that the best way to make God laugh is to tell him your plans.

The ‘Burgh

Last weekend I indulged my husband and went on a short trip to Pittsburgh to watch baseball. He comes to all my horse shows, so a few times a year we travel to see his favorite team (the Atlanta Braves) play.

Cabin Getaway

This past weekend our little family escaped the city and headed to nearby Hocking Hills for some much needed and well deserved R&R.

Late to the Party: 2017 Goals

It’s halfway through February, and while I typically like to set goals much earlier in the year, I struggled with a list of what I wanted to accomplish this year. In part, I think it’s because last year was such a roller coaster both in terms of my equestrian life and the rest of my life. The other issue I faced was putting into words what I really wanted this year to look like. Ever since I bought Miles, I’ve had big goals I wanted to cross off my list. But now I find myself in the (wonderfully!) unique position of having accomplished them all. So where do I go from here?
