Anyone still reading this?
No? Okay then.
Happy New Year everyone. I'm back. After a much needed break, I'm checking in. Expect a lot of recap on the blog in the next coming weeks, but for now I want to talk about resolutions- since that seems to be on everyone's minds nowadays. I am so not a resolution girl. I've never sat and wrote a list of resolutions, never really declared any, or if I did ever have some, I probably never followed through. But these resolutions are just for this year, they are more like a guide for where I'd like my life to go.
1) Slow Down. I am a self imposed busy body. I like to move, to do, to create. But sometimes it can get the best of me. I got this blog up and and running in 2012, which I am extremely proud of, but it takes more work than I imagined (I am in no way complaining). Looking back months ago, I have no idea how I wrote 4+ posts a week! You've probably noticed lately, but the timeliness of posts have been much slower. I'm posting because I want to, not because I feel I have to. I've noticed this with a lot of blogs too. I don't know if it was the exhaustion from the holidays or because people are craving slower but almost every blog I read has slowed their pace down and it's so refreshing!
2) Travel. B and I have never been on a vacation together with just the two of us. We have also never been on a vacation with just us and T. All our vacations have been with our families, and while they were wonderful, we'd really love to get away. Just us. 2013 will be a year full of adventures.
3) I could sit here and rattle off a list of 'normal' resolutions like: finally get our finances on track, acquire decent health insurance, have a 5 year plan for our family, etc... and while those may be the responsible resolutions for my family right now, they just aren't for us. We've had some pretty bad health scares with B this past year and it really makes you realize how unimportant all those things are. So what if our bank account is laughable. Fuck it. I don't care. Don't know where we'll be in 5 years and I really don't need too. Nothing is guaranteed anyways. I'm not saying I am throwing caution to the wind and spending like a big shot. That's not me anyway, but I need to stop thinking about where we should be in terms of xyz and focus on where we are now.
I am really excited for 2013. 2012 was a very trying year and I'm glad to put it behind us. We are going to accomplish big things this year people, just you wait and see. And if we don't? Fuck it. At least we'll have each other. Nightly dance parties in our kitchen included.
