Happy New Year, again! We’re four days into the new year and I already feel as though it is flying by. Are you feeling the same? I wanted to share one more post reflecting on 2017 before jumping into all new content for 2018. My favorite blogger, Krista of Covering the Bases, did a post highlighting lots of things from 2017 and I LOVED it! Therefore, I decided to do something similar. It is always so fun to take a look back at the year and reflect {as stated above}! Hope y’all enjoy a round up of Louella Reese as much as I enjoyed Krista’s.

2018 Goals for Louella Reese:
1. Engage more with y’all! Both here on Louella Reese and via social media 
2. Spend more time planning my editorial calendar and having content prepared further in advance {hopefully with that, less stress}
3. Dive into YouTube videos {if you have videos you’d be interested in seeing, let me know!}
4. Create more Home posts {y’all have stated those are your favorite}
5. Grow, grow, grow! The site, Louella Reese, and social media outlets. 
A million thanks to all of you for following along in 2017 and continuing to do so now! It truly means the world to me and Louella Reese would absolutely not be what it is today without each and every one of you. Can’t wait to connect with more of you this year!
