Hey 2014, how you doin?

Why hello there 2014

I'm not really very good at New Years Resolutions. Looking back at what I didn't accomplish the year before and trying to again be better than who I am the next year usually just makes me a bit depressed.

Yet, my husband is always determined to be my biggest fan so he's been bothering me with goals and how he can help me become the woman I think I need/want to be.

Make little goals, he would encourage.

A little goal can turn into a big accomplishment over time and though they seem insignificant now, they may foster bigger and better things down the road.

While I have some home goals like finally getting around to doing my mint dining room, gold confetti curtains and wall pappering maps into my laundry room (oh yea, it will all be epic).

My main goal for this year is to play.

I have a pretty adorable 3 year old and 1 1/2 year old running around my home and currently their biggest desire is to get me to put down my computer or whatever I am cleaning and play with them.

Me. They want to play with me. All day long.

That isn't going to always be the case.

I blink and they will grow up.

This year I'm going to treasure them since in about five minutes they will be all grown up and going to college. They will be getting married and not needing me anymore.

Right now -- They need me.

And they need me to be my best.

Another goal I have... surround myself with the best cause I know they will rub off on me.

I've had the pleasure of making some truly amazing friendships over the years. Women who inspire me, make me laugh, cry with me and often put up with me.

They have skills and personalities that I'd love to cultivate and when I hang out with them...

While I know my crazy side rubs off on them, their amazing side hopefully rubs off a little on me too.

This year let's remember the people God has put in our lives for a purpose.
To treasure them, make memories with them and encourage them into the woman (or little man in the case of my kiddos) that God has called them to be.

Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil.  For if they fall, one will lift up his fellow. But woe to him who is alone when he falls and has not   another to lift him up!

And  if we get around to making awesome gold confetti curtains... Bonus.

God Bless and Much Love,
