Hello there 2017.
2016 was a pivotal year in my life. We became parents at the end of 2015 and 2016 was spent adjusting into my new life as a first-time mom. It was an amazing and exhausting season in a way I don’t think anything else can be. But now that we’re into a new year I’m ready to stretch myself and (attempt to) make time for my own creative endeavors.
This year I hope to:
I was minding my own business the other day, when the reality that in about 550 days I will turn 30. That doesn’t bother me (yet). But, it suddenly occurred to me that my life is passing by and I’m not taking the time to make stuff happen.
I have just made a whole carafe of black cherry tea. For myself.
It has been a cold week and I can still hardly feel my toes!
For ONCE in my life, I actually did a pretty good job accomplishing my resolutions!
I collect bits and pieces. Odds and ends.
The types of things 10-year-olds like to collect until they grow out of it and move on to cooler collections, like high heels.
Usually I don’t realize I’ve been collecting things until I discover I have two dozen of them stowed away in a drawer.
Like fortune cookie fortunes.
Vacation is a beautiful thing.
I may or may not be around this week. That is to be determined!
I’m trying to stay away from my computer, phone, Pinterest, etc this week, and truly enjoy some R&R!
