3 Things I’m Grateful for in December!

Hey guys! Our first week of the year is already halfway done, crazy right!? Well, I’ve been having a great first week. I’ve gone to the gym, met up with my best friend (cough cough…Erika), and have set up my bullet journal for the month!

Today, I decided to bring back the gratitude posts. I stopped doing them for a few months, and I honestly miss them. It’s good to be grateful, and when I was creating these posts, they reminded me all of the good things that happened throughout a month. Let’s get started!

  1. My Brother Came Back From His Deployment


This is something that has literally made my December. Most of you guys should know by now, but my brother is one of my best friends, and has been on his deployment for about 6 months, but in December, he came back to me and my family! I’ve been so happy, cause I spend most, if not all, of December with him. It was nice spending time with him, having fun, and also helping him move into his new apartment!

Even now that he’s back at base, I’m allowed to see him at least once a month, and talk to him whenever I want to! Totally Grateful.

  1. Had an Amazing New Years Eve!

So I don’t usually have terrible New Years, but with the exception of last year, they’re usually pretty chill. Me and my brother have made a tradition of doing something really lavish for the last two years. This year we took a booze cruise, dressed up super nice, and danced the night away til midnight! We then went to a bar til around 3:00am. Definitely an amazing night.

  1. Finally Joined the Gym!

This honestly wasn’t something that I was procrastinating. There was this new gym that was opening up, and I was waiting for them to open it up. In December, I signed up! It’s significantly improved my mood, and I’ve been feeling so amazing. 2018 is going to be the year that I’m going to see changes. Be prepared guys!
