Are These Goals Even Possible?! {January 2022 Goals}

After having a slow, (mostly) restful last week of the year, we’re ready to hit the ground running in the new year! We have a ton of stuff that needs to happen this month — largely with the flower farm — which I’m actually pretty excited about because I think that keeping busy will help …
