Refresh, that’s the word I’m choosing for 2017. My life is great, the problem is, I’ve been looking at it through a lens of negativity. I don’t have any life changing goals for the next 365 days, but I plan to keep moving forward. I hope to keep growing personally, and moving toward being the positive, fun-loving person I once was.
It's hard to wear the rose colored glasses that were a permanent accessory in my life at 25. Being a grown up comes with so many pressures and obligations, and when you're a driven, goal-oriented person, it's a challenge to slow down and realize how good you already have it.
That said, in true type-A form, I have made a detailed list of goals, divided into categories all under the umbrella theme of “refresh” to drive my next year. I plan to organize my life and spaces to help me achieve both my ambitions and the balance I crave. I really want to use you, my readers and friends as my virtual accountability partners to check in on how all this freshening up is going.
So in this new year, I want to move toward making this blog a more personal conversation. I still want to share my outfits, but I will talk more about how they fit my lifestyle as a 30 something working mom. I still want to share beautiful spaces, but I want to discuss why in a world of excess you need ANOTHER rug (it’s a problem). And I want to be more open about my life as a mother, struggles at being a good wife and strategies to achieve financial comfort, while still taking vacations and living life to the fullest.
