You know how they say “sleep when the baby sleeps”? I chose to take a break when the kids had a break. From everyday chaos to preparing for Christmas, I started to feel run down. We didn’t even host anybody except the five of us for Christmas yet I felt as though I had.

Was it the end of the year burn out? Was I pushing myself too hard? Was life THAT demanding of me? I’m not sure but I had to hit that pause button and just focus on the bare minimum while the kids were off. I definitely needed it and now I’m back to hit the new year head on! I am going in with a positive attitude.

I don’t have "New Year's resolutions" (I don’t do those) but I have goals. Times are changing, the kids aren't babies anymore. I'm growing in my own personal ways but one thing I do know that won't change: I'll always be a mother, therefore I will always be experiencing motherhood. This blog has grown and changed over the years, I plan to continue growing and changing in that area but I'm not going anywhere despite my slight thought over the holiday season to just throw in the towel. I know, it may be a shock to some of you. After all, I have been doing this for nearly nine years!

I almost lost my way for a brief moment and forgot why I do this to begin with: my love of writing and reaching out to people, even in the smallest way. That and I don't give up. I'm not a quitter and I don't plan on becoming one. Thank you to all my regular readers who continue to be the drive I need in my blog life some days. 

I’m looking forward to 2018 of new opportunities both on the blog and in my ever busy personal life. 

Until next post...
