Here we go 2015……..
Loving……My family time. Last year, we lost my father in law the day after Christmas. Our break was a whirlwind of hospice and funeral plans. Nothing will remind you faster about the importance of cherishing your family and the time you have with them more than losing someone you love. Time is flying by faster and faster each year and I am determined to make the most of the moments I have with my girls. 2015 marks the year that my oldest will get her license (maybe) and take her first trip to New York City without us! They are growing up so very fast.
Thinking…… When the girls were little my husband and I used to talk about all of the things we wanted them to see and experience “once they were old enough.” Sadly, they are old enough but we are almost out of time! Oldest daughter is halfway through her sophomore year already, yikes. I really want to take them back east and show them where I grew up, we want to do a family mission trip, we want to travel to important historical sights….the list is long and time (and money) are in short supply!
Wanting……I’m afraid my wanting isn’t as heartfelt as the others…I really want a pair of Kendra Scott earrings. I love jewelry. I inherited that trait from my mother. I love that you won’t wake up one day after indulging in tons of yummy Christmas treats and the jewelry will be too tight. It won’t happen, jewelry is very forgiving! Alas, I have a hard time splurging on myself and the mister and I had a strict no gifts policy for the holiday this year, thanks to the new dishwasher we had to buy on black Friday!
Needing…..to take down the Christmas tree. Nothing more needs to be said, I’m sure you all understand. I think we may draw straws this year.
Yes….to getting back into a running routine. I’m scared to turn on my Nike app and see how many days it’s been….ugh…
Maybe….to planning another trip with my man and another girls’ trip. Last year we flew to San Antonio to see a former player’s senior night basketball game. This year we need to plan on heading to USC for graduation. My husband has another former player who is finishing his degree and we need to go help him celebrate!
I wish….. I plan on turning my dreams into plans this year and making things happen. My oldest will start driving this year and we are stressing out about paying for her insurance and all of the other things that come along with that. My plan is to work hard on TpT, this blog, working on my craft and producing quality products that will truly help in classrooms. I would love to be able to make enough to help with the growing costs of having two teenage daughters! And don’t even get me started on how close college is to happening….yikes!
Well, here’s to 2015 and all of the excitement it’s going to bring. I can’t wait to share another year of life with all of you, I love the blogging world!
Happy New Year everyone!
