  1. Holy moly that's a lot of goals Sarah! I love the goal to finish scrapbook from 2007 trip lol! I have a goal to organize all of my digital photos from the last umpteen years - and of course each day I take more and more so I doubt I'll ever get caught up!

  2. I am doing the same even though I only have 12 goals. A monthly review will make sure you stat on top of your goals. I am trying to knock off one a month.
