2014. No resolutions. Just words

So I have never been one for new year’s resolutions. I mean I always find it funny to see how full the gym is for the first month of the year and then it slows down and goes back to normal by Feb. Life changes aren’t made for resolutions…you have to make changes and any day is a good day to start those.

However I do love the thought of having words for the next year. I tried to think of just one word but I couldn’t pick just one.

My words for 2013 are Love. Live. Simplify. Celebrate. Slow down. Enjoy.


Our life is full of love and I just want that to continue and grow. I see love in the simple moments that go through the day. When TB manages to bring a smile and laugh to MB when tears are trying to take over. When we are snuggled up on the couch and content. Our house is built on love and 2014 just needs to keep it going.


Life is precious. There are so many moments worth living. You have to embrace it. You have to take risks at times. You have ups and downs. But that is life. At the end of the day you just have to live in the moment and let it take you on the journey. I am ready to live the journey of 2014.


We move at warp speed. There are a zillion decisions, choices, things to do, places to go. My goal in 2014 is to simplify. Focus on the big hits. Don’t get caught up in the everyday craziness. Take time to live and love.


We have so much to celebrate. I am thankful for everything we have been blessed with. I am grateful for my family, my friends, my job, my home, my life. We will celebrate all that it has brought us and will bring us in 2014.

Slow down.

Sometimes things just move to fast. Sometimes you just go through the motions. Every once in awhile I step back and let MB run the show. Those are some of the most amazing moments. The thrill and excitement of her knowing she is in charge. The simple way in which we enjoy skipping through the park. Laughing at the silly things we are doing. Slowing down and enjoying the moment. In 2014 I want to do that more often and make it more the way of life than the exception. Life goes fast enough I want to slow down and enjoy the moment.


Laugh. Dance. Sing. Be silly. Be goofy. Enjoy every moment. We will love each other. We will live our lives. We will celebrate each moment. We will slow down and enjoy all that 2014 has in store.

So those are my words for 2014. Those are my goals.

2013 has been a year of new beginnings. A year of living, loving and celebrating.

2014 we are ready to embrace you!
