A new year. New plans, new goals, new routines and new BABY!
This year instead of a resolution I chose a word.
My word is Thankful.
This last year and a half has been a year of struggle, growth, change, a new normal, happiness and restoration, it wasn’t easy but I am so thankful for it. We moved from Oregon to Washington, we got new jobs, we moved a couple of more times. I took so many pregnancy test and was let down so many times, I felt hopeless and I felt like a failure. I was completely humbled this year and I learned to be thankful for the little things, the things that we often take for granted.
We are starting this year back on our feet, living in a house we love in a city we love. We will be bringing home our new baby in a few short weeks and we have a big sister who is so excited to meet him. We are creating new routines for our everyday and I’m feeling inspired to get out of the house more and explore new things with Vivien. Through all of the new good things happening this year I don’t wan’t to forget to be thankful. I think it’s really easy to forget the hard times once you have gotten through them. I don’t want to take anything for granted and I want to be thankful for every little thing in my life.
I’m not even kidding when I say this, the thing I am most thankful for right now is a dishwasher! We lived for a whole year without one and I will never complain about doing the dishes again.
We have a month or so to get ready for baby brother and I’ve barely done anything! I had Vivien’s nursery all ready and done when I was 30 weeks pregnant and this poor babe doesn’t even have a bed set up and I’m 36 weeks. But what we do have is lots of love and a king size bed and that’s really all that matters, right?
Do you make New Years resolutions or pick a word to reflect on throughout the year? Let me know in the comments!
