Happy 2018! I started this year off VERY slowly as you can tell if you follow on social media or here on the blog. I am back in cold Chicago after a long stay visiting family in Florida. I am getting settled back at home, unpacked and ready to start the new year fresh. Now that I am finally home, I am working on my sleep routine which is one of my big goals of 2018. Thank you for all of you who sent suggestions to make my sleep better. It will take a while to make this routine to stick but I am committed to making sleep a bigger priority. How did your first week go? Did anyone else extend their holiday break?

I started a new tradition where I start a new journal for goal planning and ideas at the beginning of each year. I made the mistake of throwing out my first journal from the year I started my business and my first solo trip to Paris. I won't make the same mistake again. I love seeing how I grow and change over the years.
