Happy New Year, all! I took a break from the blog at the end of November and December due to the busyness of the holidays. However, with a new year comes new year’s resolutions, so I figured I would tell you some of mine! I have to admit that they are not particularly original, but it will hold me accountable to share them. Plus, I think it will give you a preview of what’s to come on the blog in 2020!
#1: Write at least one blog post per month in 2020
When I started writing this blog I was in between jobs, and I had some extra time on my hands. Now, I am working full time, and the blog posts have been coming out slower and slower. I realized that I missed writing my blog last month, so starting now, I want to commit to writing a post here at least once a month.
#2: Build garden boxes in the backyard with Josh
Last summer, Josh and I moved into a house with a big backyard. There are a lot of ornamental trees along the fence line including a large redwood. There is also a decent amount of open lawn space. I have been keeping a container garden in the meantime, but come springtime, I would like to install some raised garden beds over a section of the lawn. Right now, the garden boxes are in the research phase, but I think when the weather warms up, Josh and I will make it into a weekend construction project. And then I’ll probably write about it!
#3: Meal prep more consistently
Our meal prepping isn’t perfect, but it is a habit Josh and I are working on. In addition to saving time on weeknights, meal prepping also helps with spending less money on food out. By preparing the food ourselves, we get to choose what goes in our meals instead of letting a restaurant or a food manufacturer decide that for us. Depending on what we cook, it is probably healthier for us than a meal out, too! We try to do our grocery shopping either Saturday or Sunday, and then we meal prep on Sundays and Monday nights. This doesn’t always work out 100% of the time because, well-life, but when it does work out, it sure makes our lives easier for the week!
What are some of your resolutions, goals, dreams, etc for 2020? If you have some you’d like to share, feel free to comment or send me a message!
