Happy New Years everyone! I hope you all had a fun and safe New Years Eve!
Annnndddd happy birthday to rachelsfairytale.com !!!🎈

2017 was quite an eventful year. No matter what happened, it all happens for a reason. So whether you feel like 2017 was your year or it was one you'd rather forget, it is all in the past now. Start this new chapter of your life with power and strength. You can achieve great things if you believe in yourself.

Today marks my one year anniversary of Rachel's Fairytale! I honestly can't believe it but I'm so glad I've been continuously trying to grow this blog. Of course there are things I wish I had done differently and I wish I had posted more but sometimes life just got in the way and that is okay. If you've been here since the beginning, thank you for your love and support from the past year! If you're new here, hi! I'm Rachel!

 2018 will be a big year for me. I'll be turning 18 next month, graduating high school in June, and starting college soon after that. It's kind of scaring knowing all that adult stuff will happen this year but I'm honestly really excited.

A year ago I wrote out my new years resolutions for 2017 and since that is typically the thing people do at the start of the new year, I say we keep the tradition alive!

  1. Put faith in everything I do. Growing my faith is very important to me and I tend to put it on the back burner at times and I really want that to change this year. I want to pray more and just stay true to the Lord as much as I can.
  2. Be healthier. I probably eat more chocolate than a person should... Now of course I refuse to rid  my self entirely of chocolate but I am aware that there should probably be more greens in my diet. Whether this happens or not, we will see🤣 
  3. Grow the blog! I want to be able to dedicate the perfect amount of time to my blog and give you guys the content you deserve! I have so many DIY's planned out and some new ideas I am just dying to share with all of you!
Not too big, but of course there is always time to add to it. I find not having too many will make it easier to focus on the really important things we want to improve on this year. Let's all make 2018 our year to sparkle. Our year to do what we love and to make ourselves proud of what we accomplish.

What are your new years resolutions? Let me know in the comments!
Don't forget to follow me on social media to keep up with my adventures this year!
