Happy 2020! I hope you had a great holiday break… I definitely did. The time off was much needed. In case you’re new here, I make an annual practice of sharing my yearly goals here on the blog as a way of staying accountable (here’s my 2019 list). I’m not really one to make resolutions, but instead prefer goals. That just works better for me. I also love to share with you guys because you’re always so wonderful about encouraging me, offering advice, etc. I LOVE it. So it makes total sense that my first post of the year is all about my 2020 goals. I’m also doing something different this year and adding a focus word, basically a concise idea of one concept on which I especially want to focus this year.

Since I’m always asked for book recommendations on Instagram, I thought now is the perfect time to share everything I read in 2019… especially if you’re lucky enough to be taking some time off during the holidays.
