2020 Vision

Happy New Year!

I’m not one for ‘resolutions’ because why wait for a new year to start making a change? I do however love the excitement, cleanse, empowerment and optimism that surrounds a new year.

I do love setting realistic, achievable goals for the new year on Jan 1. In 2019 I made some serious changes and crushed some serious goals. I lost 50 pounds, I practiced an act of self-care monthly, became comfortable with being misunderstood, and turned my focus to the family that loves & supports us.

I’ve got even bigger goals for 2020. Follow along for all my weight-loss tips, tasty recipes, favorite things and more!

As always, cocktails & curse words included!

Right?

HA.

IN REALITY: I woke up a little late today. Actually, I woke up really late. Our first church service time recently changed from 8:30 to 8:00, which seems a little like Satan’s at work- but no one asked me 🤷‍♀️ I’ve been a first service goer my entire life, since my childhood. I mean, why go to the 9:30 service when I can show up 30 minutes late to the 8:00? Its LoGicAl, at least in my scattered mind. The kids handled the time change really well. And by really well, I mean we all left the house in tears. Wyatt, because he was mad I put shoes…

As the kids get older, we want to make a little list of things we hope to do over the summer. It seems like the weeks fly by so quickly, so it’s fun to have a few things mapped out that we want to accomplish.

Picture this: you’re sitting on your couch sipping a beverage, munchin’ on a snack, browsing your phone.
