Looking Ahead

2016 was a very good year – it was the year we had a son, became a family of four and actually survived to tell the tale! We even took a week-long vacation which was great. I had some fears about handling two kids but so far they’ve all been pretty unfounded!
I’m really looking forward to the new year – watching my kids learn new things each day is so exciting. But of course, I’m also looking forward to making strides for myself too. This year I would like to focus more on wellness through eating right, exercising, clearing my mind daily and also coming up with a better skincare routine.

I know it’s easier to say these things than to actually do them but I am really going to make a conscious effort this year because if not now, when? Here’s to a happy and healthy 2017. Hoping the new year brings you joy and peace. Just remember while you’re doing so much for others, to take a little time to do something special for yourself too.

Five for Friday

Well hello again. Missed me? I can’t believe how long it’s been since I’ve last posted. Frankly, it’s been too long and I’ve been letting other things take precendent over my own personal writing. So I’m hoping that ends (or at least improves) today. I thought to celebrate the long weekend, I’d go back to doing my Five for Friday posts. This week I’m looking forward to the following.

Dinner with friends

We’re going out tonight to celebrate a friend’s birthday. Should be a fun time filled with lots of laughs.


Visit with parents

Tomorrow, we’re going to visit my parents and have dinner with them. It’s always fun to spend the day at their house.


After a (somewhat) long delay, we are finally getting back out to do some house-hunting. Fingers crossed we find our new home soon!


Long weekend

I like that we have the extra day on Monday of having The Husband home so that we can go out and do some fun family activities. Hopefully the weather corporates and we can spend some time outside.


Healthy start

I need to do something about my eating habits – particularly at lunchtime (hello – bowls of cereal!) That stops now and I’m going to create a plan of healthier choices that I can stick to and enjoy.

Happy Friday!
