Hello 2013!

2012 was a great year. I was blessed with a healthy family. My marriage is constantly growing and I am amazed at how well we work when we are working. He is a phenomenal partner and I am so happy that he is on this journey with me. My son is so smart and funny and happy. He is pushing me in new (sometimes frustrating) ways and I love watching him grow and embrace each day. I have an awesome support system and I can't tell you how much my parents rock~ they had their grandson for 7 weeks this summer. Really, how wonderful is that! My work continues to bring me joy and I have started a journey that promises new opportunities on the career front too. All in all 2012 was more than I could have hoped for.
I am planning, as always, to keep my 2013 aspirations simple. I don't have a laundry list of aspirations but I do want to focus on 4 areas: Health, Home, Beauty and Love. Each month I will share some goals in these areas. I am still working through my overall mantra for this year. I recently celebrated my birthday- the day after Christmas- and birthdays are always a nice time to reflect and plan. Unfortunately we have been so busy that I haven't really gotten a chance to reflect as much as I would like but I am working on that...stay tuned.

1/2013 goals:

Health: eat better :)
-take my lunch 4 days a week
- commit to exercise 3-4/ week
-feed myself like I feed my son more often

- a load of laundry a day (wash, dry, fold and put away)
-spend 30 mins a day taking care of home

-polish my nails at least once a week
-moisturize daily

-date my hubby twice
-3 random affirmations

So what is on your agenda for this new year?


  1. first.. Happy Birthday!!!!!

    I love how you have broken down your goals for the year. They way you write them makes them sound do able and not like the usual failed resolution :) i think you are going to be able to do these!!! I like your moisturize daily goal, i am so bad with that and I have been getting so itchy! Happy New Year!!!

  2. You are off to a great start for 2013...I am still working on my resolutions, want to make sure I am being realistic. Looks like 2012 was a winner, may you have many blessings in 2013.

  3. I love that you're doing them monthly :) I'm in for the healthy lunches and workouts as well. Lets keep each other in check!

  4. These all look do-able. I have some of the same goals, even the nails! My skin is so bad in the winter, especially my hands, so I really want to do a better job of taking care of them.
