Turning the Page: A New Chapter Begins on My Birthday

Birthdays are a special occasion that invites reflection on the past year and anticipation for the future. They symbolize another year completed and an opportunity for personal growth and renewal. As I blow out the candles on my cake this year, excitement and anticipation fill me. It's time to turn the page and embark on a journey of self-discovery, fulfillment, and joy. Like a succulent for birthday, I am ready to thrive and bloom in this new phase of life.

Making New Year Resolution Progress with Progresso + Giveaway

I have always tried making New Year resolutions that would stick. And it seems great and really easy at first because you are motivated, but then by week three of the new year you are back to old habits. That's why I have decided to make smaller goals for myself this year, instead of traditional "resolutions". Easy to set, so I won't be weighed down by the heavy obstacle.

My 2016 New Year Goals:

A Year in Review #BehindTheBlogger

Dear 2015 Me,

We had a great year. You worked your booty off on the blog and had the most productive year yet. Hubby had a great year too and got promoted to a great high profile store. He is learning so much and happy for the experience. Sweet Pea is doing great in school. Her teachers always talk about how social and smart she is. Peanut is your bouncing baby toddler now. You can't believe how much he has grown in a year.
We did some great things as a family. We went to White Water, Dragon*Con, strawberry picking, and to the lake more than a few times. We had a great vacation in Panama City Beach, FL with the whole family. SweetPea started dance and you couldn't be more proud of her. She turned five this year and that is just crazy. You celebrated your 8 year wedding anniversary too.

Happy New Year's Eve!

Happy New Year's Eve, everyone! I hope you have some great plans tonight or snuggling your littles close like I will be.
