I don't make resolutions too often. It's not that I don't believe in them, it's just that I've never really been big on them. I feel differently this year looking ahead. I feel that so much has changed this year and as I look forward to the new year I would like to make some goals for myself and my family.
2010 has been exciting, stressful, life changing, fun-filled and challenging.
Ethan played in the snow for the first time.
We went on our first camping trip as a family.
I quit my job to become a full time stay at home mom.
We spent a day at Disneyland for the first time together.
Brett took a new position at work.
Ethan turned 2 and his personality has grown beyond words.
We welcomed Jacob into our lives.
Before my own eyes my baby was no longer a baby anymore, but a big brother.
We've slept very little.
I've watched my boys love one another.
I fell in love with a tiny baby smile and giggle all over again.
2010 has not been easy for me. While there have been many wonderful things that have taken place, obviously, it's also been a hard one. So I'm looking forward to 2011.
I want to eat better for myself and my family.
Take life less seriously.
Get Ethan potty trained. (This will have to happen. He has no choice.)
Go on a mini-vacation with Brett, alone, no kids.
Learn more about the pictures I am taking and how to edit them.
Step outside my comfort zone and try something totally different and new.
Communicate better with Brett.
Go to church.
Make lasting memories as a family of four.
So long 2010, it was a year of great change and growth, and now it's time to jump into 2011 with enthusiasm and excitement.
Happy New Year!
