Happy New Year Friends!
I seriously can’t believe how quickly 2012 flew by! I am so very grateful for the amazing year that I’ve had. There have been some trials and growing pains, but there have also been some amazing moments and memories that I will forever be grateful for!
I LOVE having a word for the year. My word for last year was “BELIEVE” and I have decided that my word for 2013 is going to be:
Yep! Simplify! I found that towards the end of 2012 I was trying to take on too many projects, wear too many hats and be too many different things! This year I am giving myself permission and the challenge to SIMPLIFY.
I am so looking forward to building our new home! Oh that’s right I haven’t told you guys yet! We are officially building a new home! Want to see what it will look like on the outside? Here it is!
I absolutely adore it! I love the inside even more! We are so excited and under contract so the ball is definitely rolling! I have to admit, I spent the new year packing up some boxes and watching Army Wives. I felt like it was the perfect way to spend it. My sweet family was all asleep so I decided that I could pack up some things that I knew we wouldn’t need for several months. It was almost symbolic, I was packing up the old getting ready for the new.
I even found some awesome keepsakes, old letters and heirlooms that I have been looking for! I also found that I don’t need to hang onto EVERY.SINGLE.THING. I am going to Simplify in every aspect of my life! Especially in packing!
I am so looking forward to 2013 and what the year will bring. It is going to be such an exciting year.
You guys can look forward to home decor posts/tutorials, lots of updates on how the house building process is going, and other fun things in between! I will be getting back into a blogging schedule so you’ll be hearing from me a lot more and in return, I hope to hear from you too!
I love you guys! Happy New Year!
What’s your word for the year?
