Happy New Year!
I am typing this post on my brand new laptop that Craig totally surprised me with on Christmas morning! I hope you’ve all had a wonderful holiday season – I know we sure did. I’m sad to see it end, I’m sad to see our tree come down and I’m sad to stop having such a great excuse to eat all the junk food I want to (haha), but I’m also really excited to start a brand new year!
2019 was a good year. Was it my favorite year? No it wasn’t. There were a lot of bumps in the road, some trials and struggles and I didn’t uphold myself on goals and project like I wanted to, but we still had a really wonderful year. We had several magical Disney trips, for the first time in a long time I genuinely loved summer, and we learned we are expecting our third child! I’m not particularly sad to see the year go, but I’m very excited to be welcoming a brand new year, that’s for sure.
I feel really optimistic about 2020 for some reason. Theres something about it that just sounds so fresh and exciting and I can’t wait to really work on myself this year while still striving to be the best wife and mother I can be. I’m most excited for the middle of the year when I’ll have our next baby! The idea of Emmett becoming a big brother and seeing Harrison take on that roll for a second time is almost too much for me to handle. I. can’t. wait.
I’ve made a few goals for myself that I’ll hopefully do a post on soon – mostly pertaining to my spiritual self and how I can be a better daughter of God and how I can grow in faith and really immerse myself in the Come Follow Me program. I’ve picked a word, a quote, a few spiritual goals, a few physical goals and a few fun/me-time/recreational goals that I’m really eager to get started on! I don’t know the last time I’ve felt so energized and ready for a brand new start to a year.
I hope you all have a wonderful 2020. I hope its full of self-acceptance, love, fun, adventures and plenty of days spent in comfy clothes with delicious food.
