Welcome 2015: Recap and Resolutions

The holiday season has now come and gone.  It was the first for our little man and he really had no idea what was happening.  He did enjoy eating the wrapping paper and being the hot potato that was passed around at multiple family events.  He really was awesome and in the middle of it all he popped a tooth!

2014 Recap: What can I say 2014?  You were beautiful.  I’ve learned so much about myself this year and I have a better head on my shoulders because of it.  Clearly, my favourite part about my year was becoming a mom.  However, the best part of my year was the fact that I made my husband a father!  When I see them together it just melts my heart.  They amaze me everyday and I feel so lucky to have them both in my life.

This year wasn’t easy but when I sit back and look at my little family, I’m excited for the future.  This year was the cornerstone that will shape the rest of our lives.  I’m looking forward to what 2015 will bring!

Resolutions: Last year my resolution was to make 100 soups.  Well, I think I made 10.  I really wasn’t thinking about how many soups “100” actually is when I made the resolution. Oh my! I guess at this rate, 100 soups is a “Life Resolution”. :)  
 This year, I have many resolutions!  Having a baby and being on mat
leave (not working) has really cleared my head.  Time is going by so fast now and has allowed me to slow down and enjoy the simpler things in life much more.  I now
know that family time is the most important part of the day! My
2015 resolutions are all about me, and that’s OK. But accomplishing them will benefit everyone in the family. As Dan would say, “Happy Wife, Happy Life!”

So here they are:

Learn more – I want to continue to grow and learn more about myself.  This seems like a no-brainier but I think I’ve let this go for the last few years.  Since I have less time to myself these days, I want to take advantage of the time I do have and really achieve something, such as reading a book.  
Achieve more – In a few weeks I’ll introduce what I’ve been working on recently.  I’m truly excited about this project like nothing I’ve worked on before!  I have set a goal for myself to open an Etsy shop and go into a craft show.  I’ve already said too much!  You’ll just have to wait an see…
Move more – While preggers, I retired from kettlebells.  I will pick that puppy up again.
Dwell less – Something I’ve learned this year was that I dwell a lot.  I feel that this is something that has held me back and I want to move forward.  I can’t do anything about the past but I can change my future.  This fact is key to moving forward.  Look, I’m already learning more!!
Blog more – I have a lot planned for 2015 including: a redesign, new recipes to me (can we say “bread”!), baby stuff, past travel stories and crafts.

Cheers to 2015 and new beginnings!
