Happy New Year!

Tuesday, January 3, 2017

My last few weeks of December was busy, busy, busy! But, I'm back!

The kids are back to school today and I finally have some time to sit and blog!

How were your holidays? Mine was fun! I got a chance to catch up with my sister, who had moved back up to New York at the end of 2015. She had quit her job in Brooklyn and is considering moving back to the DC area, so I'm excited!

Christmas was a little somber. We spent time with both my side of the family and my husband's and that was nice. But, we found out that a family friend was recently diagnosed with stage 4 cancer. That came as a big shock to everyone.

As for resolutions, I usually reread what I wrote around this time the previous year. And as always, I didn't accomplish any of the goals that I had set for myself.

This year, I'd love to travel more. Last year, we had a great two-week visit to the Outer Banks. We also surprised the kids with a trip to HersheyPark and to Penn's Cave. And of course, we took our annual trip to Disney World! I'd love to be able to take the kids on more road trips this year!

I'd also like to get better at knitting and crochet. It would be nice to get to the point where I can open up a little Etsy shop and sell whatever I make. I'm hoping to tackle cable and fair isle knitting this winter.

As for the blog, again I still want to do a redesign and change the name. I need to narrow down what I want the focus to be on and go from there.

Do you set resolutions for yourself? What are your goals this year?
