Happy New Years!

Can you believe it is New Years now? I still can’t believe it that 2014 flew by so fast.


I want to share my 2015 goals with you all. One way of making them real is writing them down and sharing them with someone. So, I thought I’d share it with you all.

BUT FIRST… I’d like to share with you all what I accomplished from 2014.

My 2014 Business & Life Plan 

• Finish The Mason of Hearts (This became a reality earlier in 2014. I was fortunate enough to write full-time.) 

• Send The Mason of Hearts to my Beta Readers. (In November, I sent my book to 6 beta readers and got them back 3 weeks later. I am so thankful for all of them.)

• See Johan for Christmas (This became a reality for the whole month of December. I spent the month with him in South Africa. Miss him.)

• Get in shape. (In 2014, I lost a total of 16 lbs and ran a 5K, 10K, and signed up for a half marathon.)
