Hey there 2013!
Yeah... there isn't any... So let's move on before I burst into tears or start yelling at my unborn child to hurry her butt up. Such a drama queen that one...
Jeremy and I sat down on New Year's Day and talked about this coming year. We used Simple Mom's Guide for this. (Isn't she great? Love having tools like this!)
As we talked it became clear that in 2013 we want to be intentional. Intentional in our marriage, intentional in our parenting, intentional with our finances, and intentional in our relationships. It is so easy to get caught up in the boring everyday that we forget we are here for a bigger purpose. With a new baby on the way, we both are entering this year knowing we are also going to be exhausted for most of the year and want to be intentional with those moments where we can see straight. Bradley is at a great age to start really shepherding him toward Christ. And now that Jeremy and I enter our 6th year of marriage with two little kids, we want to really focus on making time for just us and not forgetting each other because of our lack of sleep. We also have some great goals for investing in those around us and using where God has placed us in this stage of life.
All in all I am really excited about this coming year. I'm excited about fresh starts, goals with action steps, and growing together.WooHoo 2013!
If you could have a word for this year, what would it be??
