Hello 2012!

I know this is late...classic me right? But as always-better late then never.

As I realize how fast 2011 went and how 2012 is already here...I haven't had much time to really consider my goals and desires for the upcoming year. Last year was full of so many huge changes with moving and Brielle being born that 2012 seems less monumental in many ways. But I am excited about the prospect of really getting down to what I need/want to improve upon personally, as well as a family.

I am one for lists and goals and so resolutions are right up my ally. I love to really think about what I want to improve and how. So with's some of my thoughts.

Personally I have several things I would like to improve upon. I need to get back to basics and really stregthen myself in the gospel. I need to read my scriptures daily and pray daily. I need to go to the temple. I need to be more patient with my kids and stop and take in the little things with them. I sometime stress so much over the small things that I forget to just enjoy the time with my kids. Physically I hope to continue getting healthier and in the process learning to make better choices for my family's eating habits and lifestyle as well. I am hoping to train and run a 1/2 marathon this year. That's a huge thing for me but its been one of those life goals for me. I would love to accomplish it.

On a family level I would like to plan more things for my kids and Curtis and I to do. We need to get back to reading scriptures daily and praying daily and doing fhe. We do good for awhile and then we always fall off the wagon. But that's what these resolutions and times are for right? We need to spend more time just enjoying each other. Sometimes we get in the rush of things we have to get done and the schedule, that we don't slow down enough to just talk and enjoy each other. I definitely want to do this more this year.

I am so excited about this year and I really hope to be able to work on these goals and see improvement in the days, weeks, months to come.

So here's to the new year!! Happy 2012!!
