Insert Cliche New Year Title Here

Hey Pretty People! Welcome to 2016!!! 

If you've been following GG for a while, you know that 2015 was a whirlwind of a year, I married my best friend! In between planning the wedding and life in general, 2015 was a hectic year. I reflect on all the events that happened (good/bad/stressful/wonderful) and there is not a thing that I would change! It truly was the best year of my life. 

So as I look to '16, and think about what I want to do with myself this year, I draw a blank. 

I mean other than being a good wife/Christian/friend/daughter/volunteer, what do I want to accomplish? Is there a "word" that can define that? I have seen many people choosing just one word to define their year. I have seen people create visual boards to help narrow their definition. So when I think about coming up with resolutions or word(s), the only thing I can come up with, is that I just want to "live".

Live life with my husband
Live in the moment 
Live to improve my health 
Live to help improve my community 
Live to become closer to Him 

I think there is a lot to be said for just living

Moving forward I will continue to set monthly goals and I WILL attempt to stick with them this year ;) 
I also want to devote a little more time to this space! 
I plan to wear out my running shoes - Hello! Cooper River Bridge Run in April!!
I hope to grow in the area of WANT vs NEED.  

And so, there you have it my friends, my welcome to 2016 post! Let's Live!


  1. Love this idea of living in each moment! So happy for you with all that happened in 2015 and I know you're excited to see what 2016 will bring! :) Happy new year friend!

  2. Such a good post! 2015 was a big year for y'all and 2016 is going to be so good, too! Woo hoo for being married! It's the best thing ever :)

  3. I LOVE this! My word for the year is GROW. I want to grow my little blogging space, grow as a reader/ lifelong learner, and grow closer to Him :) I also love how you brought up want vs. need. I really need to focus on that this year
