52 things in 52 weeks - simply bubblyIf you saw my last post, I went through and wrote out general goals for the year.  On that list was to complete the 52 Things in 52 Weeks Challenge.  While researching a new challenge I could participate in, I came across this challenge on the blog, Kincavel Korner.  With the goal to finish 52 things in 52 weeks, I like how it is a narrowed down version of a goals list, and resembles a to do list of sorts (which I am infamous for making regularly).  I love being able to check things off as I complete them, so I am excited to give this challenge a shot.  Here is goes:
