Happy New Year!

A whole new decade! How awesome!! Not all of us made it to see the year enter in, but we tried really hard!! We also tried really hard not to wake all the newborn babies on our street while banging pots and pans outside at midnight!!

Celebrating a new decade makes me feel that my resolutions should be even more important. This will be the decade that will inspire my kiddos, and the one that will most likely form their impressions of their childhood. Because I feel that these resolutions are so important, I'm trying not to make them too terribly hard to follow.
They are simple and remind me to be more deliberate in what I do.

Make more of our food from scratch.

Repurpose more of what we have.

Be more patient.

Do more reading (for myself and to the kids).

Show my children by example how to live simply.

What about you? What are you hoping to accomplish in this new decade?

Happy New Year to all of you!
