Oh hey, Friday…the last of bad pictures

1.) 2015, are you really here?  I’m not one for making New Year’s resolutions (I prefer the monthly goal approach), but I did like what Brittany from The Kardia Blog did…choosing one word to focus on for the upcoming year.  I’m stilling mulling this one over…

2.) I got a fun “new” (to me) camera for Christmas…I’m so excited to start learning how to use it and start taking better pictures!  This may be the first time I’ve ever actually read an instruction manual (much to my hubby’s chagrin…who has had to reassemble way to many things).  For reals though, it’s about time I stopped taking pictures with my living room floor as the background…

3.)  We had a lovely low-key Christmas.  We usually travel to see family over the holidays, but we chickened out this year with a 2 month old.  We drove 8 hours when Jay was 2 months old and oh man…never again.  While we missed seeing our family, this was our first Christmas with just us and it was sweet to start some of our own traditions.  Like having a Chinese food picnic on Christmas Eve (and hey! it’s a picture of my kitchen floor, not the living room!)

4.) Most people make Christmas cookies…we’re making New Year’s cookies. My sweet hubby thought it would be fun to love on our neighbors with some cookies. (I’m choosing to love on myself a bit too).

5.) Anyone else obsessed with planners? Ideally, I would have loved one of these, but I’m having fun with my little planner too. ( Obligatory coffee planner pic, obviously)

I’m getting so excited just planning out my editorial calendar…get ready for posts about cloth diapering, pregnancy, doula dreams, nursing, and FINALLY part 2 of my birth story! (And some non-baby stuff too…any guesses on what “Weakling Bread” may be?)

    Oh soooo fun! So you desire to be a doula, eh? The hubby and I would LOVE to become Bradley Method instructors, but the timing hasn’t been right just yet. Hopefully soon we can see that goal through. Would love it!

    What a sweet Christmas memory you have! When I bake goodies, I, too, have to bless myself with one or two. 😉 I enjoyed visiting you today. Found you at Missional Women.
