Happy New Year!

2016 seems like such a big number. But it's here. I love the new year-reflecting on the past and anticipating the future. I had an amazing 2015, and I think 2016 is going to be even better. Not that every year doesn't have its ups & downs, but overall, I feel proud of what I've accomplished and made many memories along the way.

Each year, I make a few resolutions. Nothing too out of character or set to fail-just a few things to keep in mind when life gets busy. They even tend to stay the same each year. Here is the list for 2016:

Read at least one book a month.
I have been doing this one for a few years now, and I love having just a little bit of a set commitment to keep it going. I always surpass the goal, but it helps to keep it consistent. Instead of just a couple of binges a year, I always have a book in my purse. I also love keeping a little yearly list in my Filofax.

Pack lunch. 
Living in NYC, it is so easy to eat out for basically every meal of the day. Especially, lunch. There is just never enough time to shop, make, pack. I made a cheeky purchase of a couple of PlanetBoxes for Preston & myself-so I am hoping that will jump start this goal. I got Preston the Launch, for a bigger main, ideal for leftovers. I went with the Rover, because it looks perfect for snacky meals, which are easier to pack up and my favourite.
Preston & I are at that stage in life where we have a little money, a bit of stability, yet aren't too tied down. Perfect time to travel. We have a list of places we want to see, and our goal is one international and one domestic trip a year (along with our family trips to Florida). I just renewed my passport, and I am ready to go!

What are some of your goals for the new year?
