New Year 2016

Happy New Year Everyone! Sorry for being MIA since the start of the New Year! Between the girls getting sick and lots of family events early this month, I have not had much time to blog.  But enough about that...let's do a quick recap of our NYE! 

 We had a really low key NYE this year. We hosted at our house and just had 2 of our good friends come by with their kids. The night consisted of lots of food, wine, and good conversation, while the toddler tornado moved its way through our basement. ;) Seriously…you could barely step anywhere. It was like toys exploded. Ha. Needless to say, the kids had a good time. We managed to snap a few pictures of them in the middle of all the shenanigans. As the night moved on and after the new year, and as the wine kicked in, we decided it was time to karaoke. That was fun. :)  I didn’t snap any pics…Thankfully…Ha. 



 Shifting gears to my thoughts on the new year...whenever a new year starts, like most people, I always try to come up with a goal and think about what I want to accomplish in the next 12 months. I definitely want to focus a lot on ME this year. In all honestly, 2015 was pretty rough for me, personally. Having a toddler and infant has taken its toll. Being a mom is HARD work and I have had my fair share of exhaustion…While I ALWAYS want to put my focus on my family, I also started to realize, that it’s important to focus on MYSELF too. I watched this video recently of an interview by Jada Pinkett-Smith and it really hit me how important this is! Watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FQK9Ufr4yrY

With that, being a mom is such a HUGE part of me, that it will ALWAYS be super important to me to be the best mom I can be to my 2 precious little girls. My heart overflows with love for them and I will continue doing everything I can to cherish all the little moments with them. They are the greatest gift I could ever ask for! 




 Happy New Year everyone!!!
