the six f's: 2014 resolutions

Two weeks seems to be the appropriate amount of time to be late with the whole resolutions thing, right? Otherwise I can come back later... 
My sister Juli left for basic training with the Air Force earlier this month, but we were able to spend a lot of time together before the wedding. We were talking about resolutions and she said that a friend of hers makes six resolutions for the big F's: Faith, family, friends, finances, fitness, and fun. That pretty much covers all aspects of life, so I decided to follow suit.

These are my first resolutions as a "we" instead of "me" so while some pretty much have to pertain to "us" as a family, there are still a few that are mine alone. Without further ado:

Become more involved at church. Bible studies, small groups, volunteering, whatever. We're kicking this one off by going on a winter retreat at the end of the month.

Start one! 

We both have pretty solid friend groups, but haven't been interacting with each others' all that often. I think with a bit of effort, we'll have more meaningful interactions, and maybe try to intermingle friends! 

Be completely debt-free by the end of the year.

Be able to hold a completely unassisted handstand.

Travel as much as we can this year. Scotland would be at the top of our list, but we'll see what we have the budget for.

Also in the FUN category, write regularly. I know I've been sort of a dead beat blogger, so now that I'm all married and moved-in, I'll get back to writing on a more regular basis.

Any one want to share resolutions you've made?


  1. Scotland sounds wonderful! Here are mine.

  2. I feel like I maybe commented before, but if you make it to Scotland be sure you go to Saint Andrews. Absolutely charming. Edinburgh was wonderful, but Saint Andrews was amazing.

    1. Thanks for the advice, Missy! I Googled it and it looks amazing!
