Goals and intentions are very popular to start the new year off right. I have never been that great at keeping my New Years goals. Last year, I decided to have a word for the year. It was Focus. Having that one word to reflect and work towards really helped me to 'focus' in my work areas and family areas. This year, my word for the year is Strength. I know that I need more strength than ever in 2021 as our economy will be suffering due to the pandemic and many other issues will downward spiral because of the economy. I also know I will need strength to prepare, and run my three businesses this season with our three growing children. Our lives will only be getting busier. The time now is so important for us to get a jump on the new year. Don't wait to figure out your 'word' or your goals. Do it now! 
The word strength came to me very easily. I guess because I know what 2020 was like and just because it's in the past, it does not mean 2021 and the years ahead will be better. Of course, we hope they will be, but my heart tells me we have a lot to overcome in the future. Hang on, nobody said life was easy. It is the challenges we go through that makes us stronger and better at what we do in work and out of work. 
I hope you find strength in the days ahead and I hope you have time to reflect on a word or a list of goals for 2021. 
We can do this!

We’re well into the beginning of a New Year! I love a new year and the fresh start that it brings! Here are a few things that I’ve ordered to give our home a reset for the new year! 


Probiotic to keep your gut clean

Fern from Target

Faux potted fern to add 'freshness' to a room without watering it! 


This Plaid vest is cozy for winter months ahead. Easy to throw on for a casual day or to dress up with leggings and boots. 


Refresh your bed with new pillows for the new year.

Charging Station
Organize all of your phone and iPad cords with a charging station. Too many cords can drive me crazy! 

Love Crunch

Have a sweet tooth, but need to keep those New Years goals? Don't feel too guilty indulging in Love Crunch Organic Granola with dark chocolate pieces - my favorite!  

Kind Bars

Chocolate Cherry Kind bars are my favorite go to snack.  


Spend the winter months playing charades with your kids on Friday or Saturday nights!

Tell me, what are some things that you’re doing to give your home a reset for the New Year?

January Goals

We are already in the first week of January and I can’t believe how fast the holidays went by! I usually choose a word for the year in January, but I just haven’t had the chance to do that yet with how fast the days seem to be going by!

I’ve decided I have goals that I want to work on this month to focus on me and make sure that I start the year out right!

My Top 5 Goals this month are:

  1. Write Down 5 things You are Thankful for Every Day 
  2. Make a New Recipe for Dinner Once a Week 
  3. Write a Letter to a Friend 
  4. Work Out for 30 Minutes a Day 
  5. Take a Hot Bath or extra long shower once a week.

I’m hoping to accomplish these goals this month, no matter how crazy the month might get! Tell me, do you have any goals for the month? I’d love to hear them!
