personal planning for 2015

December 29, 2014

As we come to the end of 2014, I want to talk about my goals and intentions for the new year. This kind of fresh start is all mental, of course, but it really works for me. After having a baby at the beginning of 2014, the rest of the year was focused on finding my footing as a mom of two, making adjustments, and getting healthy again. I did whole30, started running again, and made daily Bible study a priority. I will constantly be working on my spiritual and physical health, as well as the work/family/personal juggle, but I do feel like I have a basic framework in place. In fact, let me go over that: Spiritual: >Wake up…

Seasonal goals has been perfect for me this year as I adjusted to having two children. I’m going to revamp my system for next year, though, so I won’t be making winter goals. More on my planning for 2015 soon. >Run a 10k: I did this back in September. Although my running hasn’t progressed the way I wish it had, a 10k isn’t a big deal for me anymore and for that I am proud. >Finish quilt: done! I have another one planned, but no idea when I’ll actually start it. >Take the Grocery Savings Made Simple e-course: I did this, and it was really helpful and inspiring.

liam at eleven months

December 17, 2014

He: >Got sick. Again. (He totally had a fever when I took these photos.) This time it was the flu, even though he did have the flu shot – but he got on Tamiflu and was better in a day. I was shocked that his ears, nose, and throat were all pristine. I started up his breathing treatments again and praying that we can keep things under control. >Learned to play Peekaboo and I forgot how awesome that is. The funniest part is that he doesn’t realize he’s supposed to cover up his eyes so he will just lift his arms up over his head and bring them down again. He thinks it’s the best thing in the world. >Wants to…

December 13, 2014

A little while back I heard artist Emily Jeffords interviewed on the Elise Gets Crafty podcast, and later when I looked her up I immediately fell in love with her abstract landscape art. I truly appreciate original art, but I don’t have any of it in my home because right now my money is being spent on things like daycare. But anyway, as much as I would love to own one of Emily’s original pieces, I at least added a print of hers to my Christmas wish list. “Grace in the Winds” by Emily Jeffords Emily is one of many independent artists that partners with Minted to offer their prints.
