New Year's Resolutions Halfway Check

At the beginning of the year I posted my New Year's Resolutions for 2014 and now that we're over halfway through the year, I thought I would revisit these goals and update you on my progress. 


  • Travel- I have done a bit of traveling this year. I've been to Birmingham, Newcastle, York, Nottingham, Stonehenge, Windsor, Eye, Snettisham Farm, as well as several National Trust sites and my usual haunts like London, Cambridge and Bury St. Edmunds. However, I still haven't left the island as my previous travel plans got put on hold due to my husband's work schedule, but I hope to fit some more outtings in before the summer is over and I definitely plan to get off of the island before the year is through.



  • Read More Books- I've tried to keep up with A Beautiful Mess' book club, but I'm still working on their May selection, The Goldfinch by Donna Tartt, which was over 700 pages long. I'm finally getting close to the end and luckily the June and July reads aren't as long, so hopefully I can catch up before the summer is through.



  • Work Out- I haven't done well following through with this goal. During the school year my excuse was that I was too tired to work out or it was getting dark too early (and my job seemed like it was enough of a workout by itself), and now that I have more free time my excuses have been the wet weather or I'm just not motivated to do it. I need to find a way to pencil this in.

  • Keep Crafting- I have been doing a LOT of crafting lately. Earlier this year I finished my wedding album. Last month I focused on my knitting and now I've got 3 sweaters that just need the tails woven in and photographed. Recently, I've been sewing and finished Gertie's Slip Sew Along (if you follow me on Instagram you've already seen it. Blog post coming soon), I hemmed a ready-to-wear-skirt, I plan on finishing the Lladybird and Untangling Knots' 2014 Outfit Along, and I have another skirt to hem. 



  • Keep up with the Blog- I'd say this goal is still a work in progress. I've been doing my best to keep up with the blog and social media, but sometimes I get distracted and life gets in the way. Just know that I'm still here and I'm doing my best.

  1. Sounds like you've done pretty well with your resolutions - though I can't believe we are already more than half way through the year!
