Goodbye, 2018

a closeup of the 31st on a wall calendar

Whoops...it looks like I skipped out on lots of blog posts in November and December! Writing has been taking up a huge chunk of my time--as it should--and I've been enjoying the holidays in both Colorado and Florida. Now that my workload has calmed down just a bit, I wanted to take a look back on this whirlwind of a year, in one of my favorite formats: lists.

Favorite Books I Read (My goal was 24 books in my Goodreads Reading Challenge. I read 39!)

  • Poser: My Life in 23 Yoga Poses by Claire Dederer

  • Scrappy Little Nobody by Anna Kendrick

  • Sourdough by Robin Sloan

Best New Experiences (how's that for a vague category)

  • concert at Red Rocks (Kaleo!!)

  • DSLR photography (not technically new, but hadn't used a camera in years)

  • reaching out to potential clients through cold emails (SCARY. But it worked!)

Favorite Moments

  • horseback riding through Garden of the Gods

  • visiting family in Florida and North Carolina--and getting to see my baby niece again

  • quitting my job to be a full-time freelance writer

I haven't yet thought about my goals for 2019. I know I'll be visiting Florida again for wedding, family and friends will probably visit in the spring and fall, and I definitely want to do some traveling. Plus, I clearly need to up my reading goal for the 2019 Goodreads Reading Challenge.

What were your favorite moments of this past year? Your goals for 2019?
