It's officially New Year's eve.
I love New Year's. I'm a resolution kind of gal. I like a fresh start. The house is organized and cleaned. Life neatly tidied up. Goals listed out in my head, discussed with Rich at the dinner table. It's a blank slate and I'm ready for the next chapter.
My #1 goal for this coming year is to be present. I've spent the last few years on hold, pregnant, grieving, reflecting and struggling with the newness of motherhood. I rushed the moments, hoping for the future date when my situation would be better / different / over.
Not anymore. The moments, good, bad & uncomfortable are part of my story. I need to dwell in them so as not to miss what is flying by at warp speed.
We've ended the year with a bang at the Phee house. We seem to be getting into a groove with this whole "2 kid thing". I even updated our blog URL to www.the4phees.com.
Alice is growing and changing so quickly. Charlie is talking more & more . . . and loving on his "sisssss-er". Here are some photos to remember our December. I'll do a separate post with my favorite photos of 2011 sometime in the new year. When I'm fully present.
