A New Year, Currently, and Resolutions

Wow! Just Wow! The very last day of the year!
 In a few more hours we'll see 2013.

 When I was little, we thought we would all live like The Jetsons in 2013! 
I guess in a few ways we are, but I still want Rosie the Robot!!

Listening: Sometimes you just have to be still.  Psalm 46:10

Loving: A little more time off. There's still so much to clean...

Thinking: how great it is just to be living this life!

Wanting: Honestly, nothing, but my kitchen needs a little help.

Needing: You know...to clean.

One Little Word: BALANCE! Everything in moderation. 
I tend to let certain areas of my life take over. I need to balance a little more.

Personal Resolution: Simplicity and (my OLW) Balance!
I started simplifying "stuff" last year and want to continue. It really does make life a lot easier. I also want to work on balancing. I miss out because I get too caught up in one thing. So...Balance!  

Blogging Resolution: Authenticity!
I want my blog posts to be more consistent and
true to why I started blogging in the first place. There's so much to learn and share. I truly enjoy this blogging community!

My friend Barb at Grade ONEderful made this precious New Year's button! Thank you, Barb!

My New Year Wish for You:All the Joy and Happiness your hearts can hold!!
Happy New Year, Friends!

  7. Found your terrific blog through Currently and I am your newest follower! My hubby and I were just discussing redoing our kitchen last night. He's so handy and has tackled a bunch of projects in our house over the years, but we haven't redone our kitchen (need to get rid of those 70's sytle light fixtures and update the cabinets and countertops).

  8. Hi! I just found your blog through Currently. I am your newest follower.

    I can totally relate to needing to "be still" and to find "balance." I hope that you can find the peace and balance that you need.
