first new year's eve as a mom
Holiday & Travel Thoughts on Motherhood

2022 Here We Come

Happy New Year’s Eve!

Is it just me, or has this year just raced by? It doesn’t seem that long ago we were celebrating the start of 2021 with plenty of hopes and resolutions. Now here we are ready to welcome 2022 and I can truly say that this year was one I won’t forget.

I had a lot of plans for myself in 2021. I was going to travel, read more, lose weight, and visit with family. For 2021 I wanted to find a new job, learn some Yoga outside of YouTube, and be better with my money. Then , one day in February, in the span of  48 hours (give or take) I found I was pregnant and had a baby

Life doesn’t always go according to plan

I did manage to travel just mostly to visit family. I have read more, but I found myself immersed in parenting and children books than anything else. Motherhood became my new job and the funds I used to spend on take-out was now used for baby food. I managed to lose some weight post-baby and did Yoga outside once. 

My 2021 resolutions weren’t reached like I thought they would be. But I am thankful for the ability to even reach them in the first place. I am learning that it’s ok when things sometimes don’t go the way you want. You can pivot, breathe, and regroup. Life is not perfect and it does not move in a straight line. I can make plans and have them fall through without having a complete meltdown. 

2022 I am looking forward to traveling to see friends and family. I want to read books for my pleasure or at the very least a magazine. Losing weight…well we’ll see. Overall though I wish for good health, happiness most of the time, and daily doses of love. I hope all of you find the same. 

2022 Here We Come!
