We're officially over a week into the new year now. I can ALREADY feel that "new year magic energy" kind of dimming!!! Despite my best efforts, something always happens to me around Day 8 of any new plan, etc. that I try to follow. (A couple years ago, I tried repeatedly to do the #75Hard… Continue reading One week in + new endeavor…

Overcoming a mental hurdle, books + a meal plan!
Mental hurdle: a busy gym I love our local gym, but guess what? So do a lot of other people. And this makes me happy, because it's locally owned by a couple (and the owners are super nice), AND our gym provides an AMAZING place for teens and pre-teens to hang out somewhere safe and… Continue reading Overcoming a mental hurdle, books + a meal plan!

First Monday of 2023!!
Happy New Year! It's the first Monday of the new year. New year energy, new month energy, new week energy! I am an absolute sucker for the "fresh start" vibe the new year brings. I know, I know.... statistically speaking, over 80% of people who make New Year's resolutions fail. Apparently 23% of people quit… Continue reading First Monday of 2023!!
Borrowing this from Lisa..... 1) What did you do in 2022 that you'd never done before? Traveled to Europe with my kids! Also went to two professional sporting events in Chicago (first time at pro soccer games). 2) Did anyone close to you give birth? Not that I can think of! 3) Did anyone close… Continue reading 2022 Survey
Post-holiday state/ re-grouping
Hello! I hope everyone had a great Christmas. I definitely did!! It was so nice. I'll write a little Christmas recap this week, but I don't have time this morning. Asher is at early swim practice and I don't have that long before I need to go pick him up. Just a few thoughts on… Continue reading Post-holiday state/ re-grouping
22 for 2022 List
When I shared my Word of the Year last week, I commented that I'm very behind on all of these "new year" type posts. Oh well. Maybe it's not so bad- there's overload on the internet of that kind of stuff in early January, so I'm just helping to spread it out a little. :)… Continue reading 22 for 2022 List
2022 Word of the Year
It's February 16, so we're technically still in the beginning of the year. Right? Not too late for some "New Year's-esque" posts. Last year in 2021 my word was PEACE. I had picked that obviously very mid-pandemic- end of 2020/ early 2021. But for me, that choice wasn't really about the pandemic specifically or making… Continue reading 2022 Word of the Year
Too many ideas, not enough time
February 1st today!! We're 1/12 of the way through 2022. Crazy. "It's a long month...." You often hear people lament that January is a long, slow month- it's the thick of winter, the holidays are over, everyone is trying to implement their "New Year's resolutions"....it's kind of like one big, long Monday all month long.… Continue reading Too many ideas, not enough time

I wish I had time right now to do another year end recap like I did for… Continue reading Word of the Year 2021 recap
