It’s still the New Year period, right?



Hi everyone,


As is typical fashion for me, I’m a little behind on life!  Haha, I’m not sure how things really get done on time around here.  But because it’s still the New Year period, I’m good, right?

Anyway, I truly hope you all had a wonderful holiday season and New Year celebration.  Our family had a great holiday.  As some of you know, we built a house last summer and were able to enjoy this Christmas in our new home.  For Thanksgiving, I was blessed to have all my kids home with me.  After we celebrated Christmas in the new house, we traveled to my family in St. Louis.  It was loud, chaotic, fun, silly, full of love and we so loved every minute of it. Being able to spend time with my family means so much and I’m so appreciative that my parents let us stay with them!  (I’m sure they count the minutes until we leave 😉 )

One thing I told myself for this new year is that I need to focus on myself and my interests.  I am a self-proclaimed “people pleaser” and that gets in my way a lot (I probably use that as my excuse).  I have so much that I want to do and I’ve put them off for so long now.  I’m putting it out there for you to hold me accountable to get things done.

So that being said, one of the things I have put aside is my blog.  So much has been going on in my life that I want to share, so I’m going to get to it.  The biggest thing is our new house.  I’m going to be doing a couple posts on the process of building our home and the end results.  Although I have a lot of decorating that I want to do, I have to remind myself that we’ve only been here for 4 months.

Ok, I don’t want to bore you, just wanted to touch base and wish you all a Happy New Year and let you know that I’m back!  (Yay you).

I’d love to hear how you’re tackling 2018, please share with me.

Until next time,
