Third Quarter Check In: 2016 Goals


Read at least one book per month. For the second quarter, I read David & Goliath, The Art of Seduction, and The Alchemist. I've been chipping away at Daring Greatly for the past few months. Currently reading Eat, Pray Love while traveling. While it hasn't been exactly one book per month, I'm glad to have checked some of the books off of my "to read" list this year.

Travel to one new country. DONE! This year, I exceed my goal, and travelled to Greece, Turkey, and Portugal! While in Greece and Turkey, I travelled with Life Before Work's YachtLife. Read more about my experience here.

Visit 3 National Parks. DONE! Another goal exceeded! I've visited five national parks this year: Arches, Canyonlands, Zion, Bryce Canyon, and Capitol Reef.


Pay off all credit card debt. Two credit cards down, one to go! Almost there!

Save at least $2000. I plan to start saving as soon as all credit card debt is paid off!


Focus on learning one new skill per month. HAHAHAHA. This hasn't worked out so well all year...

Create a resume website and professional blog. I haven't started this one yet, but hopefully this one will be in the works before the year is over...hopefully...


Summit a 14,000 ft mountain. Unfortunately, I ran out of time to complete this one. :(

Snowboard down a green run (other than the bunny hills).


Blog 2-3 times per week.

How are you doing on your goals for 2016?

With Love,


  1. I read Eat, Pray, Love a few years back and enjoyed it SO much more than the movie - I hope you are really digging it. I hope you continue to travel and make incredible memories :)

  2. You've done well with so many of these! Being able to pay off debt AND still being able to travel is wonderful, isn't it?


Hey there, Darling! I love hearing from my lovely readers! Leave a comment below or email me at! XOXO
