Happy 2014

I hope everyone had a great New Years Eve! We rung in the new year at home with our little family and it was kinda perfect. We wore silly new years party hats, had lots of snacks, played games and watched movies with Cain. After he went to bed we just hung out, enjoyed some wine, watched the ball drop, and talked about what he hope to accomplish this year.

I always make resolutions but rarely keep them. Of course I always have the "eat better" "work out more" "be more organized" kind of stuff, and I will continue to try to do better with these things, but this year I want to be more intentional. So that is my goal - be more intentional - with my kids, husband, family, etc. Be there more, like really be there, and not just half hearted. Be more intentional with our finances, budgeting, and financial goals. Creating my own happiness and really try to enjoy this year are high on my resolution list also.

As far as blogging goes, I really hope to start writing here more. I want to share our stories and document the everyday stuff. I love looking back and reading about things that I had forgotten about.

I really love photography and hope to break out my big girl camera more this year. It is just so convenient to snap pictures with your phone (and I do love me some instagram) but I am hoping to get better and take better pictures this year.

For the longest time I have wanted to start making jewelry. I finally watched some tutorials online, took a drive to Michael's and got some supplies. I made 3 pairs of earrings and two necklaces the first night - lol.

So I guess I hope to just create more, paint more, learn more, and be happy in 2014. Thank you so much for reading and following along with me. What are you excited for in this new year?
