2018 & Baby Dinosaur Sighting

Setting goals for a new year | The Girl Next Door Podcast


2018 – let's do this! We're each sharing out one word intention for the year and what it means for us. Plus leaving messages for our future selves no matter how confusing the proper speech tense is.

  1. Your podcast is SO inspiring! Love the goals/new year episodes.
    My word for the year is Thrive. After the last couple years of my mom having cancer, and multiple deaths in the family, I’m tired of merely surviving (altho that was important). I want to be/do better at the end of 2018.
    Also love Kelsey’s monthly goals (on her blog).
    Congrats on the 5th New Year episode, and looking forward to more!
    Here’s to a most excellent 2018!

  2. Great Podcast! I am a new listener and I really enjoy your podcast. I had a question about blogging. You both were talking about personal goals you had and you both mentioned writing as being one of them. I would love to start my own blog any advice? I use to blog, but I am out of the loop when it comes to blogging now.
    Thank you again for such a great podcast. Also, I LOVE your Fall Extravaganza! Please continue those and the sniffing the candle game. 🙂

  3. Kelsey, you mentioned reading parenting books; do you and Chris both read them and then talk about them or you read them and tell him about them?
