a new year!!

hello 2013!

another year has passed right before my eyes.  
i don't know why this makes me a little weepy inside.  did i live this past year to the fullest? probably not, but there is a whole new year before me to live a little more intentionally, so no regrets.

 since it is a new year, i am going to try a couple of new things this year to hopefully help me stretch and grow as a person.  
(i don't really like the word just feels like something i am setting myself up to fail at ) 

almost all of my ideas revolve around our family.
i have a little list going on new things i want to implement in our family.  
i'm sure i will touch on those in another post.
then there are a couple of personal...goals i have in mind.

first off, this blog.
i kind of slowed down on blogging last year when summer started because i really wanted to enjoy my time with the kids before they were both in school.  well, summer ended and i thought i was going to have a lot of extra time on my hands with both of them being in school, but it turns out, i kind of feel like i have less time.  i am in each of their classes one morning a week, which i love, and all my other time somehow disappears.  

blogging is a creative outlet for me as well as a place to kind of document and record a little part of our lives.  we take a whole lot of pictures, so this is a perfect place to combine some pictures and thread some words together.
so hopefully i can finally get back into the swing of things.

so here's to a new year!!


  1. Love these sweet pictures!

    I feel the same about my blogging too - it's nice to take a break and nice to go back to.


  2. I love Ella's exuberance and joy:)

  3. Love these photos.
    I wish you and your family a wonderful 2013!!

    p.s.: I'm happy to 'hear' you're back. :)


Thanks for stopping by!
