2014 – Goal Review

I’ll admit that this is way more for me than for you, so forgive the navel gazing, please and thank you. I started 2014 with some amibitious goals, and I’m happy to say that I accomplished most of them! As I unexpectedly moved from Atlanta, I didn’t complete all of those goals, but everything else, I’m pretty content with. Way to go, me!

I’ll also be copying and pasting this exact post onto the 2014 Goals page (I know, what an original title), so that I can look back on it and brag be proud of myself.
