Welcome 2014... the year of change.

Can you believe 2014 is here?? 2013 was quite the year.  We were busy... mostly growing a baby.  And now we are welcoming in the year of change for us.  The year where we get to meet our sweet little bundle.

I. Am. So. Ready.

I truly hope your holiday is a safe one... and you are surrounded by those that mean the most to you.

For the year 2014..

A bad habit I am going to break // Cussing.  As much as my sailor's mouth is a part of me... it needs to go and or get better.

A new skill I'd like to learn // To sew.  I have a beautiful new sewing machine... and I've yet to sit down and learn how to use it.

A person I hope to be more like // My mother.  Becoming a mother myself.. I know there are so many lessons I can learn from my mother on how to be there for my daughter and how to raise her to be a strong independent woman.

A good deed I'm going to do // I'm dying to do a 30 random acts of kindness type of deal.

A place I'd like to visit // Alabama.  Why?? Because that means Rob has finished his first part of schooling for warrant officer training.  It means he was picked up and the transition has begun.

A letter I'm going to write // I want to get back into sending birthday cards to all my nearest and dearest.  That is one of the things that has fallen off during the midst of my pregnancy.

I'm going to do better at // Keeping the laundry to a minimum.  Seriously causes crazy unnecessary anxiety.  Plus if we add in baby laundry... my washer will be busy.

And finally I'm going to try something new this year.  I'm going to have a word of the year.  This year the word I have selected is strength.  I hope to have the strength to get through the rest of this pregnancy.  I hope to have strength in adjusting to my new role as a mother.  I hope to have continued strength in my marriage.  I hope for all of my friends and family to experience strength in their lives as well.

What are your resolutions for the year 2014?  Or your word of the year?

  1. Here's to a new year! I've enjoyed reading your blog through the year and look forward to what's in store this year! I don't do resolutions, but I do try and be a better person this year than the last!

  2. What a lovely list. For me, I am going to get a much better hold on blogging. I am new to it and I feel there is so much still to learn.
    Have a happy 2014.

  3. Happy New Year!

    I have a foul mouth too. I try to watch it.

  4. Happy new year! Cannot wait to "meet" your sweet baby (via the millions of pictures I'm hoping you'll post to IG and your blog). And I need to give up cussing as well. Especially since little people copy me a lot. Gotta get the swear jar out! I'm sure we'll be able to take a nice long vacation with the funds I will be contributing! ;)

  5. I never realized how spectacular my mother is until I had a daughter of my own. Now I look at her in awe. I love your word! It will serve you well in childbirth!
