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…

i love : art prints from minted

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.

project life 2014 : weeks 47 – 48 (& a blog update)

December 10, 2014

Popping in to share a Project Life spread with you today. But before that, let me give you a little blog update… The season of life where I am able to post daily is over for the foreseeable future. Work is busy, Liam is mobile, and other personal projects need to take precedence when I do get spare time. So my aim is to post here 2-3 times per week, but it won’t be scheduled. You can expect similar content as always: thoughts on motherhood & life updates, tips for working moms, goal setting, memory keeping projects, creative pursuits, natural health topics, things I love, and thoughts on books & reading. Basically anything I’m up to or interested in. :)…
