Hello 2014

{My cute planner is from Paper Coterie}

Hi Friends!

I didn't mean to completely disappear like that for the last part of December.  I planned to take a little break to finish Christmas preparations and then I guess I was enjoying holidaying too much to come back until now!

If you didn't already know, I'm in the Midwest and we've been having just the snowiest winter in Michigan, no really.  We just set a new record for snow fall.  It just makes me feel like hibernating & watching TV at night instead of doing anything productive.

Besides the snow, it's been really cold!  We've had FIVE days off this month due to either snow or extreme cold.  Two kids at home means, I get to have more quality time with my seven year old while our two year old is napping.  This is normally when I do a lot of my blogging so that's another reason it's been quieter around here.  Have to take advantage of mother daughter time when I can, because she might not want to drop everything and draw with me forever.

One project I have been making time for is finishing my Journal Your Christmas album.  This is the first year I've taken Shimelle's class and I loved it.  I am not good at creating as you go throughout the month of December, so each day I would do my journaling on the computer and now I am working on making things pretty.  I hope to share some pages soon.

I have also been reflecting a lot on finding more balance in my life, between motherhood & my own identity, healthy lifestyle versus my natural inclination to be sedentary, blogging and family life.  This is something I struggle with and need to make a conscious and deliberate plan to work toward.

So that is a bit of a catch up, I'm looking forward to what 2014 has in store for us.  How is your new year off to?
