one little word 2015 : LIGHT

January 1, 2015

As I’ve mentioned a few times already, this year I am taking part in Ali Edwards’ class One Little Word. I have been following Ali for years so I’ve been familiar with her approach of taking on a word to help guide your intentions for the year, but I never felt compelled to do it myself until now. A couple of months ago I was going for a run around my neighborhood and listening to a podcast – I am pretty sure it was this one where Jess Lively interviewed Ali.

2014 in review

December 31, 2014

Most of these questions have been swiped from A’Dell’s post, and she got them from someone else, and so on. But I thought it would be a fun tradition to start, so here we go. 1. What did you do in 2014 that you’d never done before? Sewed a quilt. Ran a 10k. Completed whole30. 2. Did you keep your new year’s resolutions, and will you make more for next year? My resolution for 2014 was just to survive, and I did that. This year I would like to reduce our debt and I am taking on the one little word challenge. 3. Did anyone close to you give birth? I did. I gave birth. 4. Did anyone close to…

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…

fall goals update and life lately

December 22, 2014

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. There are still some tasks I need to complete. some systems I want to implement,…

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…
