Reflecting a little on last year before jumping into the new one………
Dan and I had baby Michaiah on February 24 (I can’t believe he will be a year old next month!) and life has been a mixture of learning, late nights, laughter but mostly love. He has been such a joy to watch grow into the little person he is becoming. I hope he never loses that joy.
We just got things in somewhat of a routine order and then decided that God was leading us to a new home only half a block from our now old one. We closed the end of the year.- just in time to celebrate Christmas here. It is so nice for Dan to have his own home office (that isn’t also the laundry room, storage room, pantry area) and I now have a sewing area!! I am so excited to start creating beautiful things again. Already sewed a little when Jenna and my parents visited from Morgantown this past week.
So my goals for this year are:
- Not to be so hard on myself. I tend to beat myself up over things that don’t go or look as I think they should. If I miss a day blogging, who cares. Not like anyone is going to be reading this anytime soon anyways. HAHA!
- I would like to however try to blog daily. I think it will be a good release for my thoughts as well as my creativity. It doesn’t always have to be long or have fancy pictures but just a little jot down of my day.
- I would like to become healthier and stronger. I am tired of the pain of my joints dragging me down. I need to set a good example for Michaiah as well as myself. I am finally starting feel like myself again the older he gets and the more relaxed I have become into motherhood.
- Lastly, I would love to continue building on my faith in God. Whether that be through reading, art journaling, groups with the women in church. I want to continue to surround myself in God’s love daily.
So that’s it for the first post. Nothing to exciting or fancy. Just me.
