My List

Hello again Darlings!

As a very list-oriented person, it seems only fitting that if I were to dedicate a whole page to writing out my life goals and aspirations, it would be in a list form. I wanted to create this page as a way of holding myself accountable to myself [especially if I have others cheering me on 🙂 ] and so I don’t forget what my goals were to begin with.

Plus, I love crossing things off my list just as much as I enjoy making them! So you will find below the awesome list of my goals broken down into several categories for ease of reading and for the sake of good organization.
