Simply 2015.

2015I hope you all had a lovely celebration ringing in 2015 last night. We had a friend from college in town and played some (extremely nerdy) board games after our little babe went to bed. It was such a nice evening and exceptionally low key, which was great considering how go go go everything has been these past few weeks. I think tonight we are going to go on our annual Christmas light drive and spend some time as a family of three.

I have never really been a resolution type person. I always feel like I fail come the end of the year and that’s never a fun feeling. But last year I chose a word to focus on for the year and upon my reflection of 2014 I think I definitely chose wisely. Last year’s word was trust. Trusting God and all of his plans for me and our family. If I had only known what was to come with this past year. Making one of the hardest decisions I have had to make in my adult life and choosing to stay home with our little girl. Pushing my comfort zone and attending a (fantastic) blogging conference in August and learning some pretty humbling lessons in our house search. Just to name a few, 2014 required a lot of trust and by trusting in His plan I was given more than I could have ever imagined.

While I still have a few smaller goals in the works, I have decided on a word for this fresh and shiny new year.

Simplify

sim·pli·fy
ˈsimpləˌfī/
verb
1. make (something) simpler or easier to do or understand.
I have that our life has been really cluttered lately. With unnecessary expectations, social media, and just STUFF in general. Here’s to focusing on what truly matters in this life we have been so blessed with and hopefully enjoying more quality time with the ones we love and not focusing on so many extraneous things.
Happy New Year everyone! Thanks for reading and keeping up with our journey through this space. I really cannot express how much it means to me. Praying for all of you and your families that you have a fantastic year filled with good health and happiness!
