Happy New Year!

I am going to keep this short and sweet.

This last year has been an insane ride.

The most challenging, heartbreaking and happiest year of my life.

I didn't know it was possible to even describe a year with such different words.

What I am sure of is that 2017 is a new beginning.

A fresh start.

A continuation of the great and hard work of 2016.

And my resolutions are...

Better yet my goals.

My goals are to be present more often than not.

To invest less in things and more in experiences.

To work harder at being a better mother, wife, sister, daughter and friend.

To read, declutter and organize more.

Less time trying to get people to like me, comparing and being someone I am not.

I want to entertain more, cook with my husband and remember what it feels like to date him again.

I want to invest in true friends, this blog and our home.

2017 is the year of hoping and working for more.
