Hello, friends. Happy 2018!! Hope you’re feeling those fresh-start vibes. I certainly am! And in celebration of starting fresh? I just gave G&C a face lift and love how the home page looks. The site is feeling more stylized, clean and crisp. My fave! Have you started making any goals for the new year? Mine, in a nutshell, are to have more fun. Fun with blogging, fun with friends, plan weekend trips, dinner parties, and attend more food & wine tastings. All in an effort to lighten my heart, because ugh, 2017 wasn’t the easiest.
My health issues hit some major snags in 2017. Then I miscarried at 11 weeks and I’m still healing from a few complications. To be frank, I’m overwhelmed at times, but mostly, I’m pining to get my life back and feel “normal” again. All of a sudden things like cooking a yummy meal, going to the gym, or cleaning my house… sound like such lovely luxuries and ones I can’t wait to have again soon. I also have big dreams for the blog this year and can’t wait to start falling in love with this space again. I’d love to start incorporating more lifestyle, food & wine, trips, home decor and wellness. Fresh starts and fresh inspiration. There’s nothing like it!
When it comes to my personal goals? Hand over heart, I’d like to put health and fitness as top priority. I’d also like to ease up on myself and stop being such a perfectionist. It’s such a kill joy – especially when it comes to this space! I’m also entertaining a possible career change. My background is in corporate sales & planning and I’m considering doing it again on a part time basis. We’ll see. Martin & I are also talking about buying a second home + making plans to travel a little more next year… I’m already dreaming of Maui for next Xmas. Haha!
But all in all, this years goals are less about the hustle and more about happiness. Taking pause, savouring moments, and living life beautifully and gracefully. And of course, I can’t wait, as always, to share the journey with you. I love popping on here to collect my thoughts, write, and hear what is on your heart as well. Tell me friends, what’s got you most excited for 2018?!! xo
