december 26.
I don't have a lot to say, but perhaps these pictures alone will speak a few words for you. 2018 was a beautiful Christmas and I hope yours was a wonderful one as well!!
i can't believe 2018 is almost over like wooooww what even?? I went through my last journal to the last day of december 2017, and there I was wondering what 2018 would hold for me just as I'm now wondering what 2019 has in store.

reading my thoughts for what I wanted 2018 to be was actually very enlightening and eye opening...and honestly, shocking. I'd reached almost all the self goals I'd scribbled down for myself and really saw a change in myself that I was realizing already, but hadn't yet fully comprehended. 
on Christmas eve I went through my entire journal and planner and wrote down highlights and thoughts of 2018. I filled 10 pages.
last year my last words in my new years journal entry were "be brave. be bold." and when I wrote that, I can't say I fully know what that meant, but that I know it now. and man, it is amazing.

I want to do a whole post on this later, for for now, I'd just like to say that journaling so much and going through past memories is something I think everyone should do, especially at the end of a year. you may not always see how far you've come until you look back and see for yourself.
2018 was a year of growing for me, and I can already tell 2019 is going to be a year of change. praying for all of you as we soon enter this new year xxxxxxxx

  7. Ok First, I looooove your photos!! Second I’m goin nuts over the aestheticness!! (yes I’m making that a word ;))

    I love looking back over old journals at the start of the new year. It’s so cool to see how much has changed and how you’ve grown and everything like that.

    Same! 2018 has definitely been a huuuge year of growth for me. Looking back, my view on things has changed a lot and definitely for the better :) I’m excited for what 2019 brings!

    Loved this post Sarah!! :D

  10. Oh my goodness, I love these photos! And I wholeheartedly agree about keeping a journal so you can look back. I do the same thing around the end of the year, reflecting on the past and looking forward. That's so awesome that you were able to meet your goals! I hope you have a wonderful 2019. :)
