First Things First

Happy New Year blog world.

In 2012, I

Tried new things. Zumba once. Water Aerobic lots. Farmers Market finally. Made new friends. Kalie, Danielle, Erica, Robin, Chuck, Bellah, Vonda. It's a good list =-) Spoke at a conference. That was cray cray. Said "cray cray" in a blog. Just now. Weird. Read too much, and then too little. Ate too much. Gained too much. Travelled a little. Laughed a lot. Loved more than ever. Learned a lot.

It was a year of growth. A good year. I guess every year involves growth - we are always living, experiencing life. But I'm feeling a little wiser. A little more peaceful. A little more aware. And at the end of it all, and here again at a new beginning, I can honestly say, I am looking forward to 2013.

If 2012 was a year of growth, I think that 2013 will be a year of change. Brett is going on his first international mission trip. It is in August (we think) and for the first time in years it has gotten us both on the same page with wanting to shed some weight and improve our health. Getting some weight off is my first priority, but when Brett is back from his trip, no matter what the scale says, we are officially going to start trying for a baby.

Can you picture the grin on my face right now?

I'm so happy. So excited. So nervous. So ready.

What if this year, I become healthier? What if this year my house is cleaner? What if this year I cook more? What if this year I read better?

What if this year I become a mommy?

It never gets old... the excitement of new possibilities.

Today we clean. We taco. We cook. We Les Miserables.

It's going to be a good year =-)
