We asked on Facebook: What do you hope to achieve in 2021?
Breathe without a mask, hugs and being in the presence of my extended family members.

Building a new house, drink great wines and engage in conversations that don’t involve elections or coronavirus.

Building a new house on the bayou, no more online classes, mask-burning parties, free to party with lots of friends!

Looking forward to ditching the face masks.
Spend more time on the beach and riding my island cruiser!
Linda Dobbs Willis
After retirement from Texas A&M University at Galveston last January, hopefully 2021 will start my new retirement! Being able to go back to church, volunteer more and travel and be able to spend more time with family!
Remodel my home, retire from Galveston’s Texas A&M University after 31 wonderful years and volunteer.
Jackie Robbins Cherry
In 2021: go on a freaking cruise, see my children more frequently and live more healthy.
Improve my golf game and come to Galveston and play a round.
Continuing to learn from what 2020 gave me — time to slow down and value what is most important — health, family, etc. — especially as things (hopefully) start to speed back up.
Make up for all the time and experiences my small children missed out on in 2020 with older friends and family.
I would love to open my bakery. But my goal is to continue my health and mental wellness journey and work on being the best version of myself possible! It’s a daily struggle but I’m so happy to see my growth!
I hope to achieve stronger and better health!
Liz Garcia Smith
Good health. Being able to travel to see my grandbabies.
Johnny Lisa Halili
Slowing down and enjoying life. Not being rushed and busy all the time.

Mine is simple! I just want to be grateful for everything in my life.

Planking for two minutes and beyond.

Health and wealth.
Getting the vaccine so we can continue to cruise!

Sandy and I had to cancel our 2020 trip to Ireland. For 2021, continued good health, safe trips with friends on motorcycle. Out-of-state organized trips with friends.
My husband and I really miss travel. We will get the COVID vaccine and plan a trip to Europe to see family in Denmark.
Planning a stress-free wedding.
Melanie McCormick Kaufman
Hoping for COVID relief so that we can travel.
Being with friends on the four cruises we canceled in 2020 rebooked for 2021.
I’m with Mary Branum, but I plan to go on my 15-day cruise from Rome!

A job and cruise again and lots of hugs!
I will have a brand-new knee! So, I hope to be walking and enjoying life again.
