hey out there.....
I haven't written anything for awhile because things got really busy and I just felt like I didn't have anything to say. When I started this I posted lots of pictures with well thought out posts and sort of thought I always had to keep that up. I'm realizing now that I can just mention little things that are going on. I have a lot of things I want to work on in 2017 and want to use this as kind of a record to see how I'm doing. So here goes
- become more organized: this has always been something I know I need to work on but has become MUCH more apparent to me since staying home with Declan. I really hate all the time I spend looking for things and it's stressing me out so much since home is now where I spend 90% of my life! I have started small with some things from the container store with my mother in laws help and am working on purging as much as possible. I am a minimalist at heart that has manifested into a semi hoarder 😬.
We are starting a kitchen/living room renovation and I really want to start out on the right foot!
Nurture my relationships : I think this one doesn't really need a description but I want to enjoy, savor, appreciate the amazing husband, son, family and friends that I have been given!
Find a church: we have been looking for somewhere to make our spiritual home since we got married and haven't had much success finding a place we really clicked with. I'm hoping by 2018 we can belong somewhere.
Other happenings: I've been brewing kombucha for a little over 2 months now and loving it. Drinking it every day has made me feel more energetic, lighter, and motivated. I just upped my batch to 2 gallons At a time so I'll post some pictures of how that's going with some bottling recipes.
Little Dec man has been sick since his 1st birthday party which is a struggle for me. Not being able to help him out is really heartbreaking. The doctor says he is all clear in the ears and lungs department though and that he is just building immunity.
I joined the essential oil club thanks to my step-sister and am loving diffusing them. I'm not too sure about what they all do but am liking frankincense and lavender a lot. I'd love to find something that helps with attention span!
We have been doing a farm share through Wild Fox Farm in Barto that has been great! It really helps us cook every night and incorporate unique, healthy veggies into each meal!
I have been trying to get back to a daily practice practice and have been loving following the Journey Junkie on YouTube. She has a yoga body bootcamp I highly recommend! It's not too tough but you definitely feel it the next day!
we went out in the city this last weekend thanks to my awesome dad and step-mom and ate at the best restaurant I think I've ever been to: Double Knot. We did the 10 course tasting menu and it blew our minds! Such a cool vibe too. Everyone should check it out.
My sister in law and I started taking our littles to swim class and declan is a natural!! He LOVES the pool - definitely going to be continuing this!
alright that is all world, going to go get my little boogie man 😛 if anyone has any advice for me on churches, organization, essential oils or whatever else it'd be much appreciated ! Hope anyone reading has an awesome day 😊😊
