Well it’s that time of year again. Goals. Resolutions. Whatever you want to call them. If you remember, I shared my 2013 goals here last year. And God took me literally on the “stillness” part because 2013 started out like this. But that wasn’t the whole story you see. Because that’s also when we found out that fall of 2013 was about get a lot more still (or crazy? still not sure which) with a newborn in the house.

Did I meet my blogging goals for the year? Nope not even close. I was too busy growing a human and trying to take care of an ever-growing toddler. But I sure did soak up every last bit of the quick year of 2013 and I truly believe I enjoyed the season I was in. Pregnancy, birth, all of it. Well except the newborn part. I always wish that away because it’s not really my fave. And then I’m sad it’s gone once it’s over. It’s a vicious cycle.

Anyways, where was I? Ah yes, 2014. A year I’m trying to hold very loosely in the palm of my hand. I really have no expectations for 2014. To be honest, I’m still adjusting to life with 2 kids and am really trying to extend myself the grace I didn’t when Luke was a baby. I’m trying to say yes to less things which often means saying no to more. I’ve never been good at saying no. I like to do “all the things.”

I would love to start working out on a regular basis again and blogging more frequently. I miss it. Sometimes I get caught in a black hole of my own blog and read random entries from years past and I can’t help but miss the writing I used to do. Someday. Someday when my babies aren’t little anymore. Which will be sooner rather than later. The days are long but the years are short. Word.

So with all that rambling and really no clear goals for 2014 other than to keep my 2 children alive, I say welcome 2014. I’m ready to just sit (well more likely stand, while jiggling a baby on my hip, and answering yet another question from my toddler) and enjoy the ride!
