Fresh Start in the New Year

This past year has not been too crazy for us, but changes were made. I quit my job of 8 years and started fresh at a new one. That was scary for me. I’m not welcoming of big changes and this was big for me. It was like starting a new year at school. My stomach always felt bad and I’d be so nervous. I’ve always been quiet and shy, not wanting any attention on myself. Now that I’m an adult, I think that feeling is the same if not stronger. We also celebrated our first full year in our new home. As you can see from my photos, not much has changed since we moved in. Haha! But we are slowly, and I mean S L O W L Y, working on furnishing and decorating. You’ll probably hear me say that for the rest of my life!

This year I’m looking forward to many new fresh starts and positive changes. A few things I’m wanting to do this new year are:

Be more active and make health a priority (isn’t that on everyone’s list, every. single year?!)

Blog more and share what I love, who I love, and our homemaking and life journey

Make sure what I buy for our home is something I really want or need

Spend more time studying the Bible and reading devotionals (I recently got a couple new ones from here)

Eat more from home and trying new recipes

Do more outside

Have friends and family over more often

Go to more flea markets, barn sales and other festivals

Be  more authentic and true to myself

What are some New Year’s resolutions that you are working on? I’d love to hear about them! And it’s always OK to work on new things throughout the coming months. But┬áthere’s something about a new year and having the opportunity to start it off fresh, new and positive that I love.
