Welcome to 2017, friends! We had the most enjoyable winter break with the kids. It included time with family, friends, each other and so many simple fun moments playing board games, napping, watching movies. We spent Christmas Eve and Day with our entire family (with the exception of just a few people). Our home was full of people, joy, laughter and playing. So much playing! My cousin’s twin girls are almost two so the house just felt alive with all four kiddos and all of the fun aunts and uncles who were on the floor and in the basement playing full force. It was amazing! We hosted a small group of some of our closest friends on New Year’s Eve as well. It was a fairly last minute gathering so I didn’t feel the pressure to host how I might normally host. That was incredibly fun and freeing. The evening was filled with sugar-high kiddos playing, laughing, dancing, parents acting ridiculous and so much more.
I have to admit that while I’m normally someone who starts a new year filled with goals and ideas, I’m finding myself feeling content. I’ll certainly set goals for my career. I’ll likely set personal goals of one kind or another. I’ll continue to exercise a few days a week and strive to eat well, but I don’t have any intense desire to make huge changes this year (other than one thing-I plan to ROCK The Snapchat. ;) I just figured this thing out thanks to a friend and am a bit obsessed. Ridiculous?! I know!). Read More »
