January Goals + Photo Giveaway

I hope everyone had a safe New Year's! We took it easy around here and completed some house projects we have been wanting to do! Since the new year means new goals and fresh starts, I'm here to recap December's goals and share those for the remainder of January! Don't forget to check out the awesome stuff we are giving away below!

Let's review December's goals:

1. Read a book for pleasure. 
I have read FOUR books this month! Let's just say I knocked that one out of the park. It has been so nice to have extra time to read a few of the books that I have had sitting around for a while! Look for some book reviews coming your way in the next few weeks!

2. Send out 5 snail mail letters.
I sent out a TON of thank you letters for my birthday gifts as well as few to some of my sweet blogger friends, so this one is also complete!

3. Go to Chicago 
SUCCESS. We spent a whole day in Chicago AND walked about 10 miles. We saw the John Hancock Tower and went up to the lounge at the top, enjoyed zoo lights for free, and saw Millennium Park. We also ate some deep dish pizza, because DUH.

Here are my goals for January (see my full list of goals here):

1. Read another book (or two) for pleasure.
2. Send out 5 snail mail letters
3. Continue keeping up with our chronological bible study. You can join us here.

I'm keeping it simple again this month! What are you goals for January and the new year?

Today I am teaming up with a bunch of lovely ladies (and my husband) to bring two lucky people some GREAT prints. The first place winner will receive an 18x12 Matt B. Photography metal landscape print of their choice (normally valued at $100) and the second place winner will receive a wood block + bundle of 12 pre-selected Matt B. Photography landscape prints from Artifact Uprising (normally valued at $35).

A HUGE thank you goes out to all of the wonderful bloggers who made this giveaway possible! We couldn't have done it without them! All entries will be verified.
