Looking Back and Looking Forward

In Mommyhood

So, clearly there’s been a big change and I’m ridiculously excited about it!  I have officially switched to WordPress, rebranded a bit and I’m so ready to get back to more consistent blogging.  There are still parts of the site that aren’t quite up to par yet (oh you know, like my about page that has been MIA for about 3 months!  *facepalm*) but they are coming! Now that we’ve had the chance to be in the new year for one whole week, I thought I’d take a look back and share some favorite moments from 2016 and some of the things I’m looking to accomplish in the next year.

It’s New Year’s Eve!  I really do feel like 2015 just started.  It’s so weird how the older you get, the faster the years seem to go.  I can remember being about 10 or 11 and feeling like growing up was so far away and would never get here.  And I suppose, since I’m 5’1″, growing “up” never did come in a sense. Ha!  But I’m looking forward to what this new year has to bring.  I love that new feeling that January first brings.  That start over point for anything you let fall the year before or just a time to begin something totally new.    I even got a new planner (mainly because my old one was falling apart) for a fresh new start!  Blank pages full of possibility. Starting last year, I decided that I wouldn’t make resolutions anymore since they tend to have a negative connotation these days.  No one seems to keep resolutions and no one really expects you to either.  That’s not encouraging whatsoever!  So I started making general goals.  Not as a way to cop out of having to keep a resolution but as a way to set realistic expectations for myself. Here…

Happy New Year!

In Uncategorized

The new year is just hours away and I’m super pumped for the clean slate feeling January 1st gives me each year!  Today we celebrate just how far God has brought us and anticipate just how far he’s yet to take us.  So I thought I’d share with you a little of both. Here are my, sort of, resolutions… What I’m Celebrating: We bought our very first home! Mr. G is almost fully potty trained (better go knock on some wood!) Three beautiful weddings Finding my niche in the handmade world with Hoopsy Daisy Another great year of inspiration and DIY fun Finding a new church that we love One full year of “Ten Little Things” Mr. G starting Preschool and it is the best possible place I can imagine him being at this stage in his development Insanely giving and loving family Another year of quitting smoking – today is 5 years! What I’m Anticipating: A whole new approach to this blogging life (stay tuned!) Less comparing Quarterly releases for the shop Focusing more on the present with Mr. G Settling into a new church home More time spent in His Word Healthier choices for my mind, body, and…

So Long, Farwell…..2013!

In Uncategorized

Like most people in the world, I’m quite shocked at how fast this year came to an end.  But at the same time, I’m excited for the new one to start.  So many new things will be happening and other wonderful things will continue.   Remember this? I’m excited for… * Moving into our new home * Mr. G’s 2nd birthday/party * Working on my recital dances for work * All of the fun BIG projects I’ll be able to do  since I will have more space! My goals for 2014:  More of these… * drinking water * devotional time * play dates * gym time Less of these… * negative talk  (whether about myself or anything else) * bad language…a big vice of mine * worrying about things I can’t change What are you excited for in the new year? XO, Kelly

I found this quote on Pinterest and it really caught me.  (and apparently a lot of other people since it has over 200 repins!) I know a lot of us are busy making plans for all of the changes we’re going to make for the new year.  Maybe it’s the ever popular “Get to Goal Weight” or “Be Healthier” ones.  Possibly some of you are making a very serious change like “Quit Smoking”.  I made that one four years ago this coming New Years and going strong! But when I saw this quote, I new this was my new goal.  Not just for the new year though.  I want to make this my new habit, my mantra.  It’s not a quote from some celebrity or long gone philosopher.  When I looked up who it was, I stumbled onto an article by Eros-Alegra Clarke.  She is a wonderful writer with a number of awards to her credit.  And not to be looked over, a mama to three! So whether she reads this or not, I want to thank her for this awesome spark of inspiration.  Thanks Ms. Clarke! XO, Kelly

In an effort to keep up with my resolutions this year, I’ve decided to blog about them from time to time. I used a printout from Live Laugh Rowe to write down my goals for the new year.  I really liked this printout because it doesn’t say “resolutions”.  It says “this year I will…”.  I feel like it’s a more positive approach to the whole resolution idea.   The first thing I wrote down was “write down prayers”.  Here’s my new prayer journal. I left the string a little long to make a place marker and tied a button to the end. I sadly cannot remember where I found these journal cards.  But they were free! I got my cover art from Beautifully Rooted. I don’t write huge novels, just little snippets.  If you’ve ever read The Help (or seen the movie), I like to think I write my prayers like Aibileen. HERE
