Looking ahead at things to come!It has been on my 'to do list' since last December to become more regular about writing here. This blog has been such a constant part of my life, even when other things around me were very inconsistent. It has followed me through 4 homes, 3 countries (if I count Vietnam, which was the beginning of this blog for me), 2 U.S. cities and many many facets of my mothering and family life.
I don't want it to fade into the sunset.
But I've really worked hard to become a more disciplined person over the last few months. I'm working on eating more carefully and getting the right kind of exercise. I'm working on becoming a more 'fit' financial steward. I'm working on becoming a more consistent and effective follower of my faith. I've tried to contribute to my community through volunteering in our school, but to balance myself a bit and not volunteer too much. And I'm working to be a more thoughtful mother and a more effective partner in my marriage.
All of those things have taken lots of time...and lots of effort...to begin to implement. And its just a humble beginning. Just baby steps that, if nurtured with time and consistent care, can help me become more of what I believe I am inside.
So, now I'm ready to add back into my life this luxury of writing about thoughts and feelings. And I'm really excited that my own kids have asked when I'd blog about them again (because their future selves are my main audience here.)
So, This week I hope to show you:
some of our Holiday fun (seems like a LONG time ago, doesn't it?)
a recent 'family holiday' we really enjoyed
the photos from our last family photo shoot, with our great friend Logan Walker
Then I'd like to write about:
New Year's resolutions
How the kids are doing
Some mothering thoughts on TEENS (ugh!)
What I'm learning about our system: modifications!
My personal food pyramid
Some fun in the kitchen, what I like to cook now...
Here I go, full speed ahead!
