Happy belated New Year, everyone! Are you a new year goal maker, or do you prefer to make goals on your own timing? I try and analyze how I’m doing and make new goals several times a year, but the new year holds a special place in my mind for really finding ways to improve and progress.
Especially this year. As alluded to in previous posts, 2017 was like living on the sea with no direction – just bobbing around, never settled to the ground, not really sure when storms might come and settle. We are originally from Utah, but spent the first eight months in Alabama acclimating to a completely different culture. We moved back to Utah, lived in my parents’ basement for four months while we had a baby born with Down Syndrome and our oldest started kindergarten, and right after Christmas moved into our newly built house! There’s lots of settling down and home-making to do, and you’ll be seeing lots of that appearing here over the next year. Plan on seeing not only sewing projects, but kids crafts, tips on raising boys, woodworking, and decor projects. The goal is to post every Wednesday, so look forward to plenty of inspiration!
On that note, have you heard this quote from Peter Pan before? “To live will be an awfully big adventure!”* A friend of mine has this quote in her son’s nursery, and when I saw it I knew Mr. L needed it in his nursery as well. Something about him having Down Syndrome makes me realize how precious life really is, and that life really will be an adventure for this little boy!
