Happy New Year!

Currently in my favorite comfy pajamas writing this from the kitchen bar of our new home.  As I sit here writing out my first post of the new year I feel a ton of emotions- content, proud, happy, anxious.  This year has been such a big one for us in so many ways and we have reached goals I didn’t think we would for some time.  These past few weeks have been incredibly hectic (holidays not included)- we moved into our new home, started the un-packing process and just spent the last week with painters (painting the interior of the first floor before most of the furniture arrives).

I feel like my mind has constantly been reeling this past year with everything that has gone on and my resolution for the New Year is to try and take a step back and be more in the moment- give myself more credit for where we are at.  I find that like many, I am my biggest critic and am constantly seeking ways to improve.  This drive is truly a blessing and curse as I find it doesn’t always allow me to let our accomplishments sink in.  So for the New Year I’m going to try let go of always having things be totally perfect and live a little more in the now.

“You can be anything but not everything”

Taking this time to reflect, 2017 brought us some amazing memories:  Kevin and I bought our first home, we also went through the process in search for a new house for the first time (for almost an entire year), we hit out one year marriage anniversary this past October, we took an amazing trip to Cabo San Lucas (Mexican travel post still to come), we spent many a weekends in Tahoe with friends and family, watched some very close friends get married, get engaged and become pregnant.  2017 had its share of ups and downs but looking back it was a pretty spectacular year and we have a lot to be thankful for.

Thank you for all of your support and love here on CH and hope everyone had a great holiday.  2018 is officially here and I can’t wait to see what it has in store.
