I know it’s cliche…but there is something refreshing about a New Year.  It’s a time to look back on what occurred over the past year, what changes you want in your life, and how to make dreams a reality.  It’s also a time to let go of things that have been dragging you down, and pick up things that will help lift your spirits.

Even the little things feel like a fresh start.  A new planner, tucked away in a new handbag.  In the past, I have always used a new planner for maybe a month.  And every year, I say this is the year I will be organized and use it all the time.  But 2017, I will use it :).

I used Christmas break to organize closets, cabinets and dressers.  I also acknowledge that the toy organization is a worthless battle, and mainly left it as is.

Our little family officially has a foster care license in hand.  A room ready.  And an anxious 7 year old.

HJ and I are spending more time playing, and less time glued to a screen.  At home, the laptop has only been used to print off coloring pages.

I am ready for the excitement that a new year brings.

One Thought on “Refresh

  1. Hooray for 2017!! So far the new year has treated me well, and I hope it does the same for you and HJ!
