Happy New Year! I am writing this while watching the Bachelor, which is a great way to start off the year, right? 😉
Luckily, I’ve already found my man and we spent last night drinking a glass of Prosecco on the couch and talking about our plans for the new year. And then forgot to turn on the TV in time for the countdown, but did turn it on in time to watch Jenny McCarthy and Danny Wahlberg make out. We know how to party these days.
As for New Year’s Resolutions, I don’t think I’ve ever kept a resolution, but I do have big goals for this year. 2017 was all about pregnancy and adjusting to life with a newborn and opinionated toddler. I had grand ideas for my career at the beginning of 2017, but had to put a lot of them on hold in order to take care of myself. Despite a hard pregnancy and having to put certain career aspirations on hold, 2017 couldn’t be anything but special for me because it brought my sweet, smiley Vivi to me!
I am just adoring having a baby in the house again and this time around I am fully aware just how fast this stage goes by so am trying my best to soak it all in – even when super sleep deprived!
Vivi is starting to sleep better, though, and getting onto a more consistent schedule. So 2018 is beginning right when I feel I’m balancing this WAHM business well again and ready to grow it. In 2017 I mostly focused on client work (and then slept), but in 2018 I want to focus on this blog again in addition to prioritizing my client work. More travel itinerary posts, more posts about balancing motherhood with a freelance career, more posts about traveling with children. I’m getting back onto Instagram and am having fun with it this time around! (I’m @onedayinacity if you’re interested in following along there.) I also want to finally learn all the bells and whistles of using my DSLR camera.
How about you? Any big plans or resolutions for the New Year?
And…what do you think of Arie as the new Bachelor?? 😀
