I'm a huge fan of the New Year because I've found that I'm actually a really big fan of change. With the new year comes new goals, a new attitude & energy and a whole year full of possibilities. A lot of people struggle with change and I totally get it. Not all change is easy, smooth or sometimes even by choice, but change is bound to happen through life and once I started embracing it change took on a whole new meaning. With a New Year comes a new theme and The Oldenkamp's have dubbed 2018 New Year's theme as The Year of Patience & Hustle.
We started choosing themes for each new year after we got married in September 2015 and have totally stuck to them throughout each year! It's such a fun and important reminder sometimes and really necessary! Having the themes have helped with sticking to goals and celebrating little wins along the way. Our first year of marriage (2016) was The Year of Doing and boy did we fit in quite the adventures. I think we were only home 3 or 4 weekends that Summer, but every time we second guessed if we should do another trip we reminder ourselves that we were supposed to be adventuring & loved every minute of it. This last year (2017) was The Year of Focus & Success and it is crazy to see the achievements and change that have taken place. I have a whole post in the works to elaborate... Stay tuned, babes!
I can't thank you babes enough for continuing to follow along on my life journey and for all the support you give. It truly means the world to me and I couldn't be where I am today without you! As always, please let me know if there is ever anything you want to see and I'll make it happen!
Cheers to 2018 darlings!!
