Starting Over

Have you ever had a moment in your life where you felt you had the chance to start over? I've been feeling that way a lot lately (mostly because of a new career direction). This morning, I am sitting at my computer with a steamy cup of coffee and watching the sun rise. Instead of writing my blog posts the night before and setting them to go up in the morning, I am actually blogging right now. It feels amazing. Less rushed, more creative and inspiring.

In honor of a New Year and a new direction, I wanted to share some of my hopes for this wee little blog of mine. Here are some of the topics that I'm really excited to delve into:

~Food/Nutrition. I LOVE to cook/bake/microwave (just kidding' bout the last one! hehe), and this year I'm really trying to steer our menus towards healthier choices. To help keep us on track and share the knowledge, I'm hoping to share about a lot of those things right here on the blog!

~Exercise/balanced life. Yup, I am also going to delve into a world that quite honestly freaks me out. I have been an anti-exerciser for the longest time, solemnly swearing that walking to and fro in the skyway is just as good as a workout. But, the few pounds that have been gathering around my waistline beg to differ, so I'm thinking it's time to dig out the exercise tapes and my legwarmers (can you guess what decade I was born in?).

~Organization. I feel like the Clutter Monster has been taking over our house inch by inch lately, and I'm prepared to fight back with all I can muster. Of course, I will chronicle the epic battle right here so you too can taste the victory!

These are just a few things that I'm excited to talk about. Of course, there will still be posts about decorating and crafting and random posts about life as it happens! As always, I'm so glad to have you all along for the journey.

What are some of your hopes for this bright New Year?

  3. I'm excited for the changes! I love your blog the way it is, but I'm sure some new stuff will only add to the joy that is your blog.

    If you manage to figure out the secret to motivation concerning exercising, you'll have to share. I'm struggling to find the motivation...

    p.s. I really like the photo you took for this post.

  4. Yay, so glad you are all along for the journey!

    Jenn- Awesome idea! I will definitely be referring to your blog- that's for sure!

    Ashley- thanks! I actually took that picture a while ago and just pulled it out of the file because I thought it fit well. =) Coming from you, that's a huge compliment!
