TBT ~ Looking Back At My ‘New Year’s Resolutions’

Hello my lovely friends! πŸ’•

It’s been so (too!) long that I sat down to write a post, and share it with you all. In my mind I’ve written a few 😁, but somehow I ended up in an endless loop of wanting to put fingers to keyboard, putting it off…just to start the same process the next day.

But, enough excuses – we’re all here now, and I thought writing a ‘TBT’ post is a good way to get my creative (writing) juices flowing again. πŸ˜ƒ

The ‘New Year’ Resolutions…well, even though there weren’t many, I pretty much failed each and every one. πŸ™ˆ

  1. Sharing photos – Nope, did not happen  πŸ˜” It’s still in the realm of possibilities though…see πŸ˜…
  2. The ‘Weekly Gallery” – Nope 🀭 See above
  3. A steady writing schedule – Nope…this is getting old 😬 see above

My biggest goal for this year, and I didn’t even write it down, was getting my US Citizenship  – that I did. 😊

As of July 24th, 2019 I am an American citizen. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡Έ
It was a very moving ceremony, and I met a lot of lovely people from all over the world. 😍 It was wonderful to share this day with all these amazing people. We were so many (321 new and proud new citizens), that we even made the news. 🀠
Here’s hubby and me after the ceremony

 That was it for my ‘Throw Back Thursday’. πŸ€— I will be back soon to tell you all about my new journals… (here are some examples) πŸ€“

…hoping to inspire and maybe even help you through the first steps of creating your own ‘Junkjournal’.

Until then πŸ’•
