2012 goals were. Ha! Not bad for a year later. I still haven't decided how I'm going to do my goals this year but it will definitely be different.
I'm still a newbie at making goals but there was one goal I knocked the socks off!

If I had to pick which books were my top five here they are:
#1 Born to Run. Very motivational as a runner.
#2 Entwined. I still can't believe I was halfway through this book before realizing it was the 12 dancing princesses story!
#3 HypnoBirthing. This seriously got me through my first natural delivery!!
#4 Emily of New Moon. L.M. Montgomery has such an extensive vocabulary and beautiful wording.
#5 A Proper Pursuit. I was 1/2 way through this book before realizing I've read it before. It's a good one!
Also, noteworthy author would be L.M. Montgomery. Once again, amazing vocabulary! I read 11 of her books this year and her style of writing does not get old.
