Instead, I’m more of a believer that you should constantly be making new goals and trying to improve upon yourself. I mean, sure – the start of a new year can be a motivating blank slate, all fresh, new, and ready for change. But I also feel like the new year can contain a lot of pressure to make it your “best year yet!” And while the reality is that I truly do hope this is one of the best years yet (for everyone), I know that there will undoubtedly be some challenges and hardships along the way.

    That being said, I decided to put together a small list of 5 goals you can actually keep in the new year – regardless of your age, sex, interests, etc. Basically, if you’re a human, I think you’ve got a pretty good chance at killing it with these 5 goals in the new year. 🙂

    Happy Friday guys! Today’s post is more of a personal one – I hope you’re okay with it. 😉 Daniel and I recently had the chance to do a kind of spontaneous, impromptu lifestyle shoot with a local photographer here in Phoenix (her name is Chelsey Herrera, and she is amazing!), and we decided to jump on the opportunity. While we may not always be the most photogenic or model-esque in front of the camera, we realized it’s been almost 5 years since we actually had any sort of *nice* photos taken together, so we figured that it was kind of long overdue at this point. Seriously – the last time we had professional photos done together was at our wedding…time freakin’ FLIES you guys! Lucky for you, we were able to act like (semi) normal people long enough to document it. Ha!
