2017 here we come!

Happy 2017!

Hope you all had an amazing week with friends and family.The time between Christmas and New Year is one of my favortie times. Everyone is off work, enjoying their family and of course gifts. We spend more time togethrn than usual as we look forward whats to come in the following year. The new adventures, dreams and of course goals.
All this can be added up to resolutions, even though I rearly make any I do make goals to improve myself and many other things around me.
I tend to see resolutions as something that we say but never really do or is it just me?
When I was a teen I would make a so-called resolution and the next day it was literally down the drain.

But this 2017 I have made some goals that I really want to work on and be the best I can be in certain areas. 2016 was a big year, one that brought us sadness and a lot of happiness. We got to accomplish many goals and new unexpected ones too. It brought me a moment I will never forget, a moment that has marked my life forever and a moment that has made me a better mother.

We made a big trip to Guatemala and I will even go as saying I may or may not end up moving there and living the Guatemalan way. I fell in love with their art, clothing and the land. Living surrounded by mountains is a dream of mine.

We also decided to stay in our house for few years more. This decision was one that it honestly took a while for me but like I always, I do believe God will show us otherwise if it’s not what he wants for our family. I will talk more about this as we make some changes to our house to make it fit us even better.

I official own the title of being a blogger. This means I will not be stopping any time soon, on the contrary I will be writting more. Whether at night or early mornings this blog is here to stay and I couldnt be happier about it!

I also after a year and a half hit my before pregnancy weight which lead me to be and feel more myself again. I’m confident, or so, about my body and I cant wait to make it even better.

This 2017 I have alot more goals, a lot more hopes and a lot more faith.
I wont list our goals on here but I will leave you with my word for the year.

 I want to be intentional!

I want to do everything with a purpuse. To be the best I can be. To enjoy every single second with my family. Not just to be there, one more person in the group, no I want to be the person God made me to be.
That may mean me saying no to many things I’m use to saying yes and vice versa but I believe is going to be a good year.
A year were God will shows us who He wants us to be and accomplish that exactly.

What are your goals for this year? Do you make resolutions?
