Phew, we made it through 2017 and what a year it was for our family. We were blessed to watch our kiddos grow, added a beautiful new addition to our family, and I was finally brave enough to start a blog. The year also brought along with it seizure scares with both of our littles. The oldest little had only a febrile seizure while our youngest little spent half of her first month of life in and out of intermediate care for a potential seizure disorder. We were so thankful to receive her Sandifer Syndrome diagnosis and bring home a happy, and otherwise healthy baby.
This year will begin a new season of life for our family. For the first time since 2010 (with the exception of 2012), we aren’t expecting or bringing home a new baby. I’m having a difficult time with it, more on that another day, but looking forward to 2018.
I’m not one to make resolutions because life happens and they are hard to keep. However, in 2018 I do have some hopes.
- Finish two Bible studies I started.
- Find and create experiences for our family. Whether it be a picnic, trip to a museum or mini-vacation.
- Practice my baking skills and make a whole lot of cookies and desserts.
- Live a more minimilastic life. Bye-bye clutter.
- Embrace the chaos!
With that said, my theme for 2018 is cookies & chaos. I’ll be baking, experiencing life and finding blessings in the mess and sharing.
Sending you wishes for a cookie and chaos (the good kind) filled 2018!
