Happy 2014

Oops, sorry guys, I didn't intend for such a long blog break there. But truth be told, taking the last two weeks off has been absolutely magical. Granted, I'm terribly behind, and I have yet to announce my fabulous banner ad giveaway winners... soon, soon, I promise. I'm actually currently in bed with a wretched flu and living off of soup and never ending cups of tea. Sigh!

Aside from said flu, I have high hopes for 2014. It feels like there's unanimous excitement for a new year and fresh start. Am I right? I'm looking forward to a year of greater clarity, and I'm feeling a strong pull towards a more simplified life. Hopefully, I'll be able to share more of my personal journey here on the blog. I always intend to, but then I get distracted and out of sync with my goals.

On that note, here goes...

Blogging: I'd like to blog a little less in January, and when I do, I'd like it to be more organic and of the moment. I'm hoping to get back to posting our little adventures, recipes, personal updates, and of course, fashion, always fashion! ;)

Time: I hope to spend my time more consciously this year. I'm usually knee deep in projects, the blog, work, and I make little time for my hubby, friends and family. It's terrible and I really don't like this about myself. So yeah, life balance, it's something I really need to learn.

Exercise: Run twice a week + go to the gym once a week. Totally doable! Again, I just need to learn to prioritize my time better.

Appreciating: Buy less and appreciate what I have. Wow, sometimes I can get so wrapped up by consumerism that I totally forget to enjoy all the things I'm blessed with. Shame on me! 

Family: We've been trying, not always with the greatest success, but we are hopeful that this is the year we'll get pregnant. It's my goal to take better care of my health in order to increase our chances of a healthy pregnancy.

Home: Spend more time on home DIY projects, entertaining friends, and spend time in the great outdoors. We're surrounded by the most amazing trails and I'd like to make more time for that.

What about you? Any goals you're excited for?!...
