Hey beautiful people! I have a huge personal countdown that I am too excited to share with you AFTER the New Year! It is going to be grand so make sure you stick around to see what the great news is!

Did you know that there are 73 days left in 2015? It is coming to an end, finito, fin, das ende. Are you ending it with a bang? I always feel like the end should be grand. I think that is why people put so much emphasis on ending the year with a huge party orbeing at church, or spending it with family. However you end the year I pray it ends well. Are there some things you need to do personally or professionally before time passes?

As I closed out 2014, I ended my marriage and it was very emotional for me. I stayed with my mother for two weeks until I was able to move into my new place. I was emotionally unstable. But I was looking forward to the New Year. I am glad I am able to focus this time the end of the year with sparks, high hopes, and great times! I want to make it memorable in a way where I look back and smile and say, “I Did That!” or “I Can’t Believe I Did That!”

I wanted to be intentional and come up with 73 Things To Do To End the Year With A Bang. These ideas are random and can be done however and whenever you would like!
