  1. I love how you have everything categorized...it keeps things organized and realistic! I was actually just looking at Cursed Child tickets yesterday, trying to decide if it's possible! Happy New Year!

    1. Yes. I like to sort goals through a S.M.A.R.T. goal process, so the organization definitely helps with that.

      Good luck with the Cursed Child tickets - I haven't been able to get chosen for the lottery yet. :(

  2. Great goals! I love New York and want to visit at Christmas time but not sure how many trips we will take this year. Chuck wants to check out Seattle and that sounds fun to me! Happy New Year friend!

    1. I always love hearing about your trips, so I hope you all are able to make some travel plans for the year with the new babe.

      Happy new year to you and yours! :D
