Welcome to 2015! There is something so wonderful about turning the page to a new calendar year. You can make a fresh start on your goals, resolutions and ideas for the year ahead.
There is a recent trend where people are asked to pick one word as an intention for the year ahead. Last year my word of the year was Grace. I tried to hold on to the idea of being graceful in the face of sleep deprivation, active children and a busy social schedule. Although I wasn’t always successful, it was helpful to have that little reminder in the back of my mind when presented with challenging times.
This year I have been thinking about what my new word should be for the past month. As someone who has lots of ideas and energy, sometimes I get too caught up in what’s new and shiny. My word of intention for 2015 is:
- I plan to apply it at home and be present when interacting with the kids and my husband.
- I plan to share posts on the blog that are more helpful to my readers and spend less time on sponsored posts.
- I plan to use one notebook to write down all the thoughts/ideas/to-do’s that pop into my head.
- I plan to limit the amount of stuff in our home so we have space for the things that bring joy to all of us.
I’m excited for the year ahead and the new opportunities that it will bring. I have a renewed interest in writing on the blog again and plan to focus on meal planning, organization and homemaking, plus a few new recipes in the coming year.
My favorite recipe posts I shared with you in 2014 were Cucumber Dill Yogurt Dip, Banana Walnut Bread, and Coconut Vanilla Ice Cream (yummy!) In the land of homemaking, my favorite was the under the bathroom sink organizing project. I’m most proud of the Meal Planning posts from the past couple of years as those are the ones that I continue to hear are the most helpful to my readers.
Cheers to you for reading and supporting me here. If you want to share your word for 2015, leave a little note in the comments.
