New Year Thoughts

posted on: Tuesday, January 4, 2011

Hey lovelies! Are you getting in gear for 2011? I'm so excited about this new year! New adventures are waiting for us. So many changes are happening right now in my world. We just found out that we have to move, my baby is getting so big, SO fast and Sam is working on starting his own business. I've learned to see change as a positive thing. I kinda love it. I did cry for just a second when I realized we would be leaving our house forever. I mean, this was our first house together, I labored and gave birth to my son here. All my sweetest memories are here. BUT, then I thought of all the amazing memories to come. Bring 'em on baby!

Here are some little goals I have been pondering. Some are from this week, some I have been thinking up for a while now. Why not have them be inspirations to my own heart.

inspirations for my own heart this 2011

-keep falling in love with my husband as we explore life together
-write more letters to dear loves
-sing more songs
-figure out how to wear lip gloss longer (i always rub it off because i kiss káel all day long and i don't want it to get on his face. haha)
-hide more little love notes around for my lover man
-explore the little coves and shops of nearby towns and cities
-listen more
-when i have a sweet idea for a friend or random person, act on it more often than not
-scribble more of my thoughts, in this blog and in my journal
-strum more tunes on my guitar
-work my little (or soon to be little) tushy out with zumba and start weight training again
-grow my hair out
-instigate more coffee/tea and girl outings with my heart friends
-doodle and design more in my bigger than life sketch book
-soak up every moment with our son as he grows
-work towards being a personal trainer someday (i love encouraging people and think it would be amazing to help fellow moms get/stay in shape)
-finish writing my birth story (yeah, it's taken me some time)

plans for the blog 2011

-create/host a diy (do it yourself) project at least a couple times a month
-feature one of you lovelies (prego/mommy blog reader) once a month (your life, your love, your story)
-be more consistent with the timings of my postings (geez its been sorta challenging with my little forest boy)
-meet and connect with more of you amazing dearies
-start up some boho style/lifestyle vids with the help of my amazing video producer hubby -- featuring topics like:

-affordable ways to have a cute wardrobe while preggerz
-simple and fast hair styles including fun hair wraps
-some of my fav baby gear, the whys and hows
-talks with some of my favorite mommys
-and more...

So excited to start this year with all of you! It's going to be wonderful.
