Happy New Year! This year I decided to make a conscience effort to be intentional about making the hopes that a new year brings, a reality. I do believe there are ways that you can meet the hope of a better year with actions to turn that hope into daily reality. Here are 4 ways to start the New Year fresh and keep it fresh all year long.
Now that 2017 has come to an end I have taken some time to reflect on the year. A sort of report card or progress report on how I did as a mom, wife, friend, human being. Of course we all have things we can improve on and all of us start off really hopeful on New Years day, but then life happens and you lose sight of the change you wanted to make. In 2017 I went through some major life changes, had some great experiences and some not so great experiences, and I am taking time here to share what I have learned and sprinkling in some cute photos of the family that we recently took at the Christmas Tree Farm.
One of the most frequent compliments that people give me since I started blogging and posting pictures of myself on social media is about my smile. While I may be confident in the effect that braces and staying away from coffee has had, Cameron…not so much. In an act of solidarity we decided to do teeth whitening together with the goal to have a brighter smile by Christmas.
Just when you think that champagne can’t get any better, I am flipping the script and bringing you champagne cupcakes (mind blown…I know…) This recipe is sweet, decadent, and champagne is the the star. These are sure to be a hit as you celebrate the night away.
I really hate the phrase “new year, new you”. I feel like every time the new year rolls around that phrase is on billboards and flyers at nauseam. My approach to a new year is always one of optimism and hope, but to think that I am going to be a whole other person, a “new me”, is crazy talk. All about my New Outlook for the New Year and My NYE Outfit coming in hot!
