Happy New Year! 2013 was very good to me and I was happy to celebrate the year’s end with a couple of great friends, good snacks, and hilarious games we weren’t so good at. In the past year we bought and renovated a home, I turned 30, and had a beautiful baby boy. Of course with the good came some struggle, but I love a fresh start. I’m very excited about some goals I have for 2014. Goals for this blog, for me, for my family.
For The Senses Five: new series, more posts, new design. I have been writing posts here for quite a long time and one thing I realized was I didn’t want to post for contents sake. I really enjoy sharing on this space and don’t want to lose site on why I do this. I have reflected on what I like about other blogs, and what I don’t like and how I can make this a space that I would enjoy coming to. When I got wrapped up into pushing out content, I didn’t always like what came out. So babbling over, there’s some changes coming that I am excited about and I hope you’ll enjoy as well!
For me: wardrobe, try something new, meditation and reflection. It’s finally time for the big change in my wardrobe. In my head my style is defined and clear, but when I look in my closet I see something very different. It’s time for these things to align. I’ll talk more about this soon and how I plan to slowly but surely transition my closet. Trying new things doesn’t have to be a huge things, just something. A class, a food, a new route to the place you go to over and over again, a new book. And last but not least meditation and reflection – 5 minutes a day. That’s all. Just 5 minutes of me. No phone, no computer, no tv, no baby, no one else.
For my family: me, wife, mom. Yes, in that order. Being a mom is one of the best things I have ever experienced. But I am not alone in this, I am one half of a parenting duo. I want to make an effort to remember that. And also remember that I am a wife and a person aside from both those things. It may be controversial but I believe that putting myself first will make me a better wife and mom, and a strong marriage will make us better parents.
