4 Months

So I am roughly 4 months into my fantastical mini life goal list (you know, my 101 in 1001), and things are actually going really really well.  When I have come back to review my list lately, I have actually been surprised at how quickly things are going.  I couldn’t have imagined checking so many […]

Be Mine

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner, I wanted to make sure that ya’ll are all set up with the perfect plan for a romantic night in with your sweetie.   A night in?  On Valentine’s Day?  Now, that may sound non-traditional to you, but trust me.  Follow my Valentine’s Day recipe, and your night […]

Welcoming the New Year

Ringing in the New Year, welcoming 2017, starting fresh, however you put it, we had a great time.  In fact, to be honest, I think that the hubs and I enjoyed one of our most favorite (relaxing) New Year’s Eve and Days ever. We were initially just excited by the idea of being home (which […]

Happy New Year

Don’t you just love this time of year?  Out with the old, in with the new…reminiscing on the past year and looking forward to the New Year…new goals, new dreams, new hopes, new desires?  I love everything that the New Year represents – it gives me new energy and gives me the sensation of a […]

2016 Highlights

It’s hard to believe that in a few short days, 2016 is coming to an end.  I think that I say this every year, but I really really mean it this year – this past year has flown by!  But at the same time, we’ve been blessed with a lot of family time, a lot […]

Chugging Along

I’m almost 2 months into my 101 in 1001 (yikes! time flies by fast), and actually I am doing pretty well with my list.  The funny thing about creating this list of 101 goals, is that I actually forgot about a bunch of the things that I put on it.  Different family and friends have […]

Fall Fun

So, yes, I have been a bit of a list-lady lately.  Guilty as charged.  Although I haven’t always been successful at checking things off of my lists, lately, it has really been working for me; including my list of fun things to do during Fall.  It might be a bit premature to say this, but […]

Checking Off My List

Although it has only been a couple of weeks since I posted my 101 in 1001, I have surprised myself by already checking a few things off of my list.  I am starting to think that accomplishing my list won’t be as difficult as I might have imagined.  In fact, I am pretty sure that […]

Last Year’s Goals

Did you catch my post this past Sunday celebrating my blog’s birthday and sharing with you my goals for year 2 of La Mia Bella Vita?  Well, I realized that you might be wondering how last year’s goals went, and if I was able to grow and succeed in the ways that I had outlined […]
