Europe, Teaching, and Crocheting!

Welcome my loves!

Today I am going to be sharing my New Year Resolutions with you all. I have decided to list my top 6. Knowing that they are out there, I will be more likely to stick to them. Granted, I am not one of these people to make crazy resolutions that I know I cannot and will not keep. Thus, this is more of a vision board than anything else. Full of hopes for the year 2017.

First of all! I hope to do more traveling this year. Hopefully abroad to Europe, but even a change of scenery here in the states would be welcomed.

Secondly, I am going to land a teaching job this year. This ties into traveling more, because I am trying to get a job teaching abroad in Europe. So far no leads, but main hiring season has not started yet. So fingers crossed!

Third, in response to mental health awareness I have a BIG crochet project planned. I will be crocheting an afghan, where I will be chronicling my daily moods and overall mental health by the color of the yarn. (Red- bad, yellow- happy, blue- calm… etc) I will be doing this to hopefully raise awareness for mental health. I expect it to look similar to the afghan below.

Fourth, I have a goal to take more steps. Everyone makes a healthy life choice goal. Mine is to get in more steps. I am not crazy, I do not intend to lose a crazy amount of weight. However, I have been sedentary over the holidays and would like to break that with taking in more steps each day.

Fifth, I am going to save more money this year! I have always been tight with my money. However, while in my relationship I ended up blowing all of my savings (3,000 and upwards) to care for my significant other. Sadly, leaving me broke. But, I have already started to save my spare change in a beautiful jar I may share with you all to help get my savings back up to where they were.

Finally, I plan on working on volunteering more in my community and otherwise. I used to donate a great portion of my time to helping others. Although, with everything lately (past year) that has affected me mentally, emotionally, and physically I have not had the time, nor motivation to help. I plan to break that cycle and help as much as I can. If you know of any charities that are in need link them in the comments!

Well, that is all folks! Those are my main goals/resolutions for the year 2017. If you have any resolutions you would like to share you can post them in the comments or link me to your resolution post. I get inspiration from you guys after-all!

I hope you all have a lovely New Year celebration and stay safe!

I will see you in 2017!

 

Find of The Day

Hey there gorgeous!

Today, I went out to dinner with my main squeeze. I’m eyeballing you MR. Anyway, while out eating I was looking around at the shop and found these adorable little containers. 


Aren’t they pretty?! I may be biased, considering yellow and pearls are just a few of my favourite things. They look almost vintage as well which is another win in my book! 

What do you think about these guys? 

Like, share, and comment! 

See you soon!
