Instead of having resolutions this year, I plan on making smaller monthly goals. I'll check in at the end of each month to evaluate myself and create goals for the next month. Many bloggers are already doing this, and I think it will be an easier way to actually accomplish things.
1. Finish my Brazil Photo album and start my wedding photo album
I started a Project Life album for our Brazil photos, and I am about half way through with getting all the photos in. I also need to add captions and make things cute. I printed out over 300 photos and still have more to print! Crazy! I can't wait to share the album with you.
I haven't even started on my wedding photos... But I really want to get an album done. If you have any digital photo albums you love, send your recommendations my way! For my wedding album I prefer high quality over low price.
2. Save $500
One way I hope to make saving this amount easier is that I plan on taking on some private students. There are plenty of students interested, I had just postponed it for awhile, as we were adjusting to our new jobs, I was already working full time, and I was honestly getting a little bored of teaching beginners. However, there is a huge need for violin teachers in this area, and there is plenty of interest, and I could make some extra money... so this next semester I will be taking private students again!
