    Aww, so many things to look forward to in 2018! This year has flown by in the blink of an eye and I’m hoping to make 2018 better in more ways than one, esp when it comes to family and strengthening the bonds we have as well as taking better care of myself and focusing on my blog more than I did this past year. These are all great reminders and tips for the new year 😉

    This is fantastic. I loved everything you wrote about setting boundaries and good habits for 2018. I’m working on a similar post myself.

    I love reading yearly review posts. I’m so glad that you’ve had a good year, in terms of moving forward with things, such as leaving a horrible job behind. All the best for 2018! You’re going to kick ass!

    I love gardening! I live in a condo so I don’t have too much outdoor space but I do the best I can!

    There is so much gold here! I learned how to create boundaries in some of my relationships last year, and I feel so much lighter for it! I definitely want to be more intentional in taking care of myself (long, relaxing showers, working out, painting my nails, etc.) and also be intentional in how I approach my job.

    I definitely need to work on unplugging and reading more. I used to read so many books before social media and used to enjoy it!

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweet about animals and thought I will check your website. I like it!

    I love pets. I have two beautiful thai cats called Tammy(female) and Yommo(male). Yommo is 1 year older than Tommy. He acts like a bigger brother for her. 🙂
    I have even created an Instagram account for them ( ) and probably soon they will have more followers than me (kinda funny).

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Keep up the good work on your blog.
