Happy new year to all! Can you believe that it’s already 2017?!
January is all about creating and starting out our New Year’s Resolutions, so this year I am sharing my resolutions with all of you. Firstly, I want to be better about saving my money. I am cutting back where I can, like giving up Starbucks, and cooking at home more often. I hope that will go hand-in-hand with posting yummy recipes to share with you!
Secondly, I want to explore. I want to experience all that my wonderful home state of California has to offer, and hopefully I can manage a trip up to the PNW also, because I have been craving an adventure there for some time. On the first of this year, my love and I adventured down the coast to Big Sur. It was breathtaking!
We have a poster of Big Sur hanging up in our living room with Bixby Creek Bridge on it, so seeing this as a couple for the first time was so much fun! We’d been talking about going here for a year and we finally did. I also loved McWay Falls, which was majestic, and the water there is so blue; it’s amazing.
I loved looking at McWay Falls and admiring it with my love. Afterward, we walked in a tunnel under the Pacific Coast Highway to Julia Pfeiffer Burns State Park. It was gorgeous, and we hiked a lot; all day we ended up hiking over eight and a half miles. So yet another resolution was met (for the day, at least): to be healthier! We are going to do a lot of hiking this year.
What are your resolutions for 2017? Tell me in a comment below! I wish you all luck in your endeavors for this year and I will do my best to keep my resolutions as well. We got this!
