50 Things In 2018

Happy New Year friends!

I unplugged over the holidays from the blog, if you couldn't tell already.  We had houseguests, dinners, parties & so much relaxing, that The Bottomless Cup took a backseat during that crazy couple weeks. I hope you all had an amazing time with family and friends & are ready to plunge into the new year, like I am. We're getting back into our everyday routines & as a mom to a wild 4 year old, I'm ready for school to start back up.

Every year at the beginning of the year, I think about all the things I want accomplish throughout the year, whether it something big, small, adventurous, or silly.  Does anyone else do this?  I don't make resolutions; that word just sets me up for failure.  Instead, I list things I want to accomplish or do throughout the year so when I look back, I feel like it was a well spent year.

Creating a list & sharing it helps keep me accountable while allowing me to update my progress throughout the year. I'll do my best to update quarterly here with how things are going; you may even see some posts dedicated directly to some of these specific goals.
