Happy New Year

 Hey loves. Can you believe that it is January 2023? Who is with me and loves a new month and especially a new year. 2022 did not end as planned. After Christmas our family got hit with Covid again and Brian's dad is in the hospital. He was on a ventilator, but it off it now. He still has a long road ahead of him but seems to be improving every day. We also have family in from Seattle during all this, our visits started outside and are now inside with everyone having negative tests back. It is great to see them as they come home only once a year if we are lucky. 

Are you starting the new year off with new goals or even refocusing on old goals? I am so excited to refocus and dial in on what I need and want in my life. I am all about setting personal and professional realistic goals for myself. I will also still be sharing and reflect on my monthly goals with you to help hold me accountable.

Before we get into goal setting for 2023 lets do a reflection of 2022:
